“You can do everything from bikepacking on it, to racing XC or even just going out for a full day’s worth of singletrack.”

- The Radavist

Trail-optimized geometry means going bigger over rougher terrain. With a slack headtube designed around a 140 travel fork, the Timberwolf isn't afraid what awaits in the woods.

Since the dawn of the mountain bike, there's been one tubing that has mattered most when it comes to ride efficiency. Honed Logic tubing is stiff where it needs to be, strong in all applications, and resilient to the bone.

Dropper-ready! Discrete cable routing for internal stealth droppers - because who needs to see a bunch of housing anymore?

“This isn’t just another hardtail.”

“When I first saw this frameset, I was in love.”

“I am still surprised how much I wanted to keep this bike after the test.”


Few can claim to have played a bigger hand in the evolution of the mountain bike than Tom Ritchey. And he's still at it. The original Timberwolf debuted in 1984 as Tom's answer to the growing demand for a mountain bike that could handle more of anything. Reborn 30 years later, the Timberwolf is a hardtail incarnation of an all-mountain trail bike that can shred anything you throw at it. Designed around 650b wheels, the Timberwolf is agile and fluid whether bushwhacking the mountainside or carving single track. It's the bike we can't stop riding.
