Ready to obliterate all that comes before it, the Dreadnought XT is dripping in a wish list of fit-and-forget parts. The 170mm travel Fox 38 Grip2 forks are coupled to a custom-tuned Fox X2 Air shock, dishing out 154mm of superbly damped rear-wheel travel. The Trifecta high pivot suspension system boasts a square edge hit destroying 100% rearward wheel path that simultaneously eliminates unwanted and detrimental drivetrain forces. Often imitated but never equalled, our proven One Ride geometry not only delivers a consistent ride experience across the size spectrum but an unrivalled level of balance and composure that truly separates the Dreadnought from the competition. A bike that defies industry categorization, is equally at home in the Alpine, the bike park or between the tape, the Dreadnought XT will blur lines, exceed expectations and come back for more.

One of our core philosophies is that everyone who rides our bikes should experience a similar ride characteristic, regardless of your size or stature. To this end, we have put extra effort into our geometry and sizing and one of the major contributing factors behind a bike’s overall ride feel is its weight balance. The term ‘weight balance’ refers to the relationship between the rear-center and the front-center, and the resultant position of the rider’s center of gravity between the tire contact patches. How each tire is weighted, directly affects the grip characteristics of the bike.
This weight distribution will also have a profound effect on both the [bike’s] agility and its stability. Many brands talk about their bikes having “balanced geometry”, yet they only use a single rear-center (chainstay) measurement across all frame sizes. If the rear-center remains constant with each size while front-center change, then it stands to reason that each size [of bike] will see a different weight distribution and therefore a different ride characteristic. At Forbidden, in an effort to ensure a consistent ride experience across all sizes, we employ a scaled rear-center measurement for each individual frame size.
A BETTER FIT
Our commitment to geometry and the dynamic ride characteristics of our bikes doesn’t end with scaled rear-center lengths. A challenge for all modern bikes, especially those with 29” wheels, is the relationship between effective and actual seat angle. We are extremely proud of the fact that our actual seat angles change with each size getting progressively steeper as frame size increases, thus, ensuring taller riders have a better-seated position than that of our competitors.
Our commitment to a better fit for all riders also led us to larger than normal increases in head tube lengths that better suit each end of the size range. We feel that these small but extremely important details ensure that you, the rider, will feel instantly at home on our bikes.
The most obvious feature of our Trifecta suspension system is the high pivot point and the resulting rearward axle path it produces. Unlike some other frame designs that talk of a rearward portion of their axle path, the height of our main pivot within the frame structure means our axle path takes a completely rearward trajectory throughout its travel (fig A). This rearward motion allows the rear wheel to move with, not against, any size of impact. This, in turn, allows the bike to remain composed and maintain momentum through rough terrain.
The lengthening of the rear-center during compression also exhibits the advantageous trait of stabilizing the chassis during bigger impacts and compressions. Imagine a weight bias that is playful when high in the travel, but inherently more composed when you need it the most; that’s what a high pivot can bring to your trail riding experience.
Anti-rise is another term often discussed and regularly misunderstood; it is the term used to describe the effect braking has on the suspension system. Significant anti-rise was once seen as a negative trait. However, as our understanding of chassis dynamics has improved, and more importantly, as our riding styles have evolved, it is now seen as a useful aspect that can be used to further tune the ride handling of the bike. The level of anti-rise in our system (fig B) helps counteract the inevitable fork dive associated with the heavy braking loads often encountered with modern, aggressive trail riding. This result is consistent chassis stability under heavy braking.
As the heart of any frame, the quality of the carbon construction is paramount to both ride quality and durability. To this end, we partnered with one of the leading manufacturers in the business which allows us to stand behind our product 100%.
Our hardware is a testament to our attention to detail, from the forged Rate Control linkages to the custom stainless steel screws that hold everything together, we have spared no expense in the finishing of the Druid leaving nothing to chance.
ZIGGY LINK COMPATIBLE
Mullet curious or a die-hard convert, the Dreadnought shares the same Rate Control Linkage system as its little brother, the Druid, and therefore accepts our ‘corner slaying conversion kit’, also known as Ziggy Link.
We don’t discriminate against rightys or leftys and our adaptable cable routing allows you to neatly route the Druid’s cables and hoses no matter where in the world you come from or with what hand you operate your rear brake with.
REAR SHOCK COMPATIBILITY
The Druid comes equipped with a custom-tuned Fox DPX2 shock, but if your heart is set on something a bit more ‘heavy-hitting’, we have you covered. There is enough room in the Druid to fit the largest of air shocks with a leverage curve that is coil ready from the get-go.
WATER BOTTLE FITMENT
Even our smallest Druid frame size can fit a full-size 26oz water bottle, regardless of your rear shock reservoir. Remember, hydration is your friend, but sweaty backs most definitely are not.
A quiet bike is a fast bike and a clean bike is less prone to problems, so we developed a full suite of custom frame protection to keep the noisy bits quiet and the hard to clean bits free from crud.
CHAIN GUIDE SOLUTION
All that high pivot goodness requires a solid chain retention solution so we turned to the chainguide experts over at ethirteen to develop a retention system specifically for the Druid.
The ‘under the top tube’ mounting screws allow for the attachment of various accessory mounting solutions; pump, tools, a banana, the kitchen sink, go crazy, just don’t hang a water bottle there.
Embracing standards with actual benefits, such as a threaded 73mm BB, 148mm rear hub spacing, a 31.6mm seatpost, a ZS44/ZS56 headset and a 205 x 65 Trunnion shock, will take the headache out of piecing together your Dreadnought dream build.
