Stick to the race line, or carve your own on the DREADNOUGHT GX LTD Team Edition. This team replica build features a shred-ready spec, tested and approved by the Forbidden Synthesis Factory team. With a limited number of units available, and all of them assembled at our Cumberland headquarters, these bikes will be as exclusive as the ones found under our factory pilots. These bikes feature a SRAM GX 12-speed drivetrain, Code R brakes, RockShox Zeb and Super Deluxe Ultimate dampers, Crankbrothers Synthesis wheels (available in either a full 29 or mixed wheel configuration), and rider’s choice of Maxxis tire casings and frame colour. Each bike is outfitted with a size-specific handlebar rise, taking our industry-leading One Ride Philosophy to the next level. The only thing the Dreadnought GX - LTD Team Edition needs is a steady diet of rough and rowdy terrain.

As the heart of any frame, the quality of the carbon construction is paramount to both ride quality and durability. To this end, we partnered with one of the leading manufacturers in the business which allows us to stand behind our product 100%.
Our hardware is a testament to our attention to detail, from the forged Rate Control linkages to the custom stainless steel screws that hold everything together, we have spared no expense in the finishing of the Dreadnought leaving nothing to chance.
Mullet curious or a die-hard convert, the Dreadnought shares the same Rate Control Linkage system as its little brother, the Druid, and therefore accepts our ‘corner slaying conversion kit’, also known as Ziggy Link.
We don’t discriminate against rightys or leftys and our adaptable cable routing allows you to neatly route the Dreadnought’s cables and hoses no matter where in the world you come from or with what hand you operate your rear brake with.
The Dreadnought comes equipped with a RockShox Super Deluxe Ultimate Air RCT, but if your heart is set on something else, we have you covered with more options, including a custom-tuned Push ElevenSix, Fox Float X2 or Ohlins TTX2 Air.
Even our smallest Dreadnought frame size can fit a full-size 26oz water bottle, regardless of your rear shock reservoir. Remember, hydration is your friend, but sweaty backs most definitely are not.
A quiet bike is a fast bike and a clean bike is less prone to problems, so we developed a full suite of custom frame protection to keep the noisy bits quiet, the hard to clean bits free from crud and that precious carbon protected from flying debris.
All that high pivot goodness requires a solid chain retention solution so we turned to the chainguide experts over at ethirteen to develop a retention system specifically for the Dreadnought.
The ‘under the top tube’ mounting screws allow for the attachment of various accessory mounting solutions; pump, tools, a banana, the kitchen sink, go crazy, just don’t hang a water bottle there, please.
Sometimes change isn’t progress. We embrace standards with actual benefits, such as a UDH, threaded 73mm BB, 148mm rear hub spacing, a 31.6mm seatpost, a ZS44/ZS56 headset and a 205 x 65 Trunnion shock.
