Foes Racing showed off the Shaver, a work-in-progress trail bike with 5″ to 5.5″ of rear wheel travel that’s adjustable via different shock mounts. The pivot placement and leverage ratio have been adjusted to give it a hard candy shell for efficient acceleration and controlled bottom out with a creamy center for plush performance in the rough stuff. Specs include a tapered headtube, optional ISCG05 mounts and 142×12 rear axle dropouts, triple butted hydroformed 6061 aluminum tubes. All standard coil-over and air shocks will work with the frame.
