New Breezer Supercell 29er Trail Mountain Bike Brings Second MLink Design to the Dirt
Last fall, mountain bike legend Joe Breeze released his first modern full suspension bike, the Repack. It’s a 650B, 150mm trail bike with a unique suspension design called MLink. That’s short for Mid Link, so named for the pivot placed in the middle of the chain stay. It was co-developed with Sotto Group and works by reducing the amount of rotation required at that pivot point while also keeping the entire rear end stiffer. A full tech breakdown of the design is here.
Now, they’ve added a 29er trail bike to the platform called Supercell. It’s a 120mm travel bike built on the same premise, sharing the D-Fusion tube shaping and a carefully designed geometry to keep it fun and fast…
The Breezer Supercell will come in three models. The top version is the Team, shown here with full XT build and Fox Factory suspension bits. The frame is custom drawn 6066 aluminum with heavy tube shaping.
Compared to the longer travel 650b Repack, the Supercell reigns in the geometry a bit to make for more traditional top tube lengths. Chainstay length measures out at 17.67″, which is on par for 29er bikes in this travel range…not excessively short, but not too long either. Likewise, head angle is 70º, about average for bikes in this category, and should lend it a balanced mix of agility and stability.
Like the Repack, the Supercell runs sealed cartridge bearings and oversized 15mm axles at all main pivot points. The suspension design is both anti-squat and anti-rise, meaning neutral pedaling impact on the suspension.
Bottom bracket is PF92 with a direct mount front derailleur above.
All this comes in at just $4,099.
The Supercell Expert is the entry level build with Deore and X-Fusion suspension. It still gets WTB wheels, tires and saddle, delivered for $2,599.
In the middle is the Supercell Pro with a sweet gloss black and gray paint scheme and SLX build. You’re back to Fox suspension parts and a retail of $3,299.
