There's no point denying it and we're proud that the Five S is one of the most iconic trail bikes we've ever created. For the best part of twenty years it has stood loud and proud amongst its competitors. One of the best performers you'll find, full-stop.
For the Mk12 iteration of the frame we've changed pretty much everything! We've strived to maintain the classic Five 'shape' we all know and love but the chassis updates we've made with the Five take it to a whole new level.
While reworking the rear suspension kinematics to fit a metric shock standard, we've made the frame's suspension progressively curve more than any previous Five S, giving plush travel and a bottomless feel.
We've tinkered with and made small adjustments in the pivot width, swing-arm length and the key contact points. This means the Five S has more travel and is as responsive as ever whilst being much more stable at speed. Most importantly the Five retains the 'pop' that's always been a part of its addictively playful nature.
We've always loved the Five, and even if we say so ourselves, we've all fallen in love all over again.
