Habit Alloy 4

Dialed Trail Geo
New Habit nails the sweet spot for trail geo with a fresh lower-slacker-longer treatment. A slacker 65.5 degree head angle, much steeper 77.5 deg seat angle, around 2 cms more reach, and a shorter seat tube for longer dropper insertion and lower standover across the board.

Habit LT uses the same frame, but is slightly slacker due to the longer fork. 64.7 degree head angle, 77 deg seat angle. Perfect for the wilder side. (Note – both bikes have the same rear shock eye-to-eye measurement, just different stroke shocks)

Proportional Response Suspension and Geometry 
Proportional Response is our holistic, size-specific design philosophy; our Nth degree obsession to ensure that riders across the size spectrum get ride feel and performance optimized for them. 

For our Proportional Response Suspension, we alter the suspension kinematic by size, based on riders’ average center of gravity, so that every rider gets the same dialed balance of braking, pedaling and bump absorption. 
For the Proportional Response Geometry, every aspect of the geo is size-specifc, right down to the chainstay length, so as the reach, stack and front center dimensions grow with each size, so does the rear center, keeping the rider centered between the wheels for unmatched traction and control.

The result is that the Habit and Habit LT feel like they were custom built for you, whoever you are.
The new Carbon models get the full Proportional Response treatment with custom geo and suspension for every size. The new Alloy models get a split. There are 3 kinematics. XS obviously gets its own unique one since it uses 27.5 wheels front and rear. Small and Medium share 1 kinematic, and another for the L and XL. 

Easy to Love
Habits are built for fun, with straightforward, easy-to-work-on components. Industry standard headset, threaded BB, industry standard shock mount, and UDH derailleur hanger.  Easy to use internal cable routing on both alloy and carbon (carbon gets full tube-in-tube).  Bolt on StrapRack tool & stuff carrier included on Carbon models.

Just-Right Trail Spec
Habit is built for fast, flowy, all-around trail riding fun. 130/140mm travel. Inline shocks, Pike or Recon forks, light trail wheels and tires, 180mm rotors. Quick, light, playful and snappy.

Habit LT is built for the rowdier side of trail riding. 140/150mm travel, piggyback shocks, Lyrik forks, send-it wheels and tires, and 200mm rotors. Poised, planted, rugged and poppy.
