Big trail adventures demand big confidence. Roots, rocks, ruts and steep drops—the Reign 1 27.5 was made for this stuff.

Featuring 160mm of smooth and active Maestro suspension travel, an ALUXX SL aluminium frameset and cutting-edge 27.5 wheel technology, Reign 1 27.5 shines brightest when the trail gets rowdy. It’s strong enough to tame aggressive terrain and efficient enough to conquer climbs with ease. Stable geometry, a tapered OverDrive steerer tube design and air or coil shock-compatible shock mounts make Reign 1 27.5 the choice for aggressive trail riding and enduro racing.

Amazing bike - 5 Star Excellent rating - Very pleased with it....
2016-07-02 11:45:57.0

Climbs and Descends super well. Very pleased with it. Would recommend it to anyone. Well spec'ed and super plush suspension. Stealth black and lightening quick. Very very stoked with the Reign. Got it at a good price as well. Almost got a Stumpy fattie but pleased I went with the Reign. Climbs the local Palmy Back Track quicker than my old 130mm travel trail bike, the maestro suspension and Pikes are really efficient with zero bob. Buy this bike you will not be disappointed.

Best uphill Bike I have ever had
2015-12-17 12:39:02.0

I have been buying bikes in this category (trial bike for a bit of everything) since 08' and have been through 5 different models.

This time I wanted one with a bit more beef going downhill. So after a lot of research, advice from the T7 staff and professional biking friends I went for the Reign 1 2016.

It was everything I wanted for downhill and more! The extra slackness made steeps easy and the beefier forks made drops and jump smoother. It actually made me a better rider. One of my mates actually said one day after I did a very sketchy jump line "no way you would have held that together on you old trail bike".

After all the improvements I found in the down, it is amazingly the fastest and best bike I have ever had for the up! I could not believe that you could have all these benefits of downhill orientated bike and still be such and amazing pedaler! I was prepared to sacrifice so up capability but found it was more capable!

The 1/11 "small big" drive system is epic and still has low enough gearing to tackle anything and the high gear is plenty high enough to boast home on the sealed road with a tail wind.

It also comes with a super high spec Reverb dropper post which I love! Only yo watch out for is if you get a small the max length dropper post you can have is the 100mm range - which I found is enough.

Hands down best bike I have every had. And its a mean cool too!
