The DIRT LOVE is our lean, mean, dirt- and street-machine that combines agility, ruggedness, and light weight. If you’re all about style and taking home the jackpot in cash-for-tricks sessions, the DIRT LOVE is your ideal partner. Hard landings or crashes, the chromoly frame shakes it all off. Regardless of whether it’s crushing it in the street, having a good time at the dirt jumps or sending massive backflips at Crankworx: the DIRT LOVE will make the most out of your airtime and won’t let you down on drops, flips, and spins.
New for this year: the DIRT LOVE is now available in two frame sizes!
Our roots can be found in dirt jumping, which is why so much of our passion and development work flows into the DIRT LOVE. Technology that is mostly only found in aluminum frame production has been put to good use on the DIRT LOVE’s steel frame: hydroforming. The down tube, chain stays, and the tapered head tube of the heat treated double-butted CrMo frame are preformed, which provides the basis for a bike that due to its low weight is perfect for jumps and tricks.
The top tube and down tube are both reinforced with internal gussets to deal with the harshest landings, yet you will still notice how silky smooth the bike moves underneath you when nailing sweet tricks like tailwhips or decades. And the newly revised compact dropouts with integrated chain tensioners make life even sweeter.

Jumps are getting bigger, tricks are getting sicker: the Pike DJ 26 is the perfect fork for all this progression. The little brother of the award-winning Pike features a sturdy 35mm chassis and is both light and stiff. The custom-tuned Charger damper shines on any type of jump, and the specific Solo Air spring offers significant end-stroke ramp-up for buttery smooth landings.
The lightweight SRAM Level TL brakes are built on the same technology that is used in downhill, in combination with SRAM’s 160mm Centerline rotor they provide dependable power and control. The super strong DT Swiss 533D wheels will let you get away with one or two over-rotated tricks and dirty landings, while the Maxxis Ikon front tire and Maxxis DTH rear tire give you the optimal mix of speed and grip.
