Hero of your home turf

Optimized kinematics for strong progression

With the upgrade of our well-known F.O.L.D. kinematics, your THRON 6.8 is ready for even more trail fun. We kept the well-liked sensitivity of the F.O.L.D. but changed the positioning of our kinematics within the frame for strong bottom-out resistance. The characteristics are completely progressive which results in a chassis that offers a lot of stability in any terrain. This allows you to handle any trail while the chassis still provides comfort for long laps. Furthermore, the lower standover of the THRON 6.8 gives you more space to play on the trail.

For your inner child

The THRON is made to surf trails. It is made for your inner child, made to have fun and awaken the explorer that you are. The geometry of the THRON makes you feel comfortable and confident in any situation. You are in control whether it's a technical or flow trail, no matter you go up or down. Pure riding fun first. You stay relaxed on long tours and go fast on trails. Smooth running 29" wheels support both riders experienced and beginner.

Integrated and clean

It's all about the details: The specially developed C.I.S. (Cockpit Integration Solution) design ensures a clean cockpit and constantly seamless shifting and braking. All cables run from the handlebar into the stem and through the headset into the frame. Furthermore, the THRON comes with a tool bag between the top and down tube angle. The tool bag offers space for all your essentials like a multi-tool, tube and a small pump.

All bikes purchased from iRIDE will have been pre-assembled by our mechanics and test ridden. You will also receive a multi point checklist of all the safety checks and bike build elements we work through to ensure you bike is correctly assembled, and then tested so that it runs as it should. Bikes being sent to a customer who is unable to collect it from iRIDE, will have it boxed, wheels, saddle and bars generally off and re-packaged.

The delivery of bikes will be organized once a freight fee can be determined based on weight and delivery location.

Assembly should take no longer than 10-20 minutes. It is recommended that a skilled mechanic assemble, or check the bike. If possible your local bike shop is likely best placed to do this from a safety perspective to ensure all is as it should be. If a rider is having any issues we can hook up an online video chat, or talk over the phone. If this service is required email us at workshop@iride.net.nz to organise a time that suits all parties.
