Stiffness, precision and traction equal confidence on even the gnarliest trails, so we’ve completely redesigned key features of the Mach 6 Carbon to give you every technical advantage. The Mach 6 Carbon incorporates an all new, Phoenix DH-inspired double wishbone rear triangle, and ultra-stiff linkage design, all based on real-world testing by our athletes as well as significant in-house prototyping and development:

  • All new linkages offer huge gains in overall stiffness – the upper linkage alone is 40% wider, 150% stiffer and utilizes larger bearings at the frame attachment point.
  • The new, redesigned clevis is now lighter, stronger and provides increased clamping force on the shock body.

When combined with the new double wishbone rear triangle design, these add up to the absolute stiffest frameset available in the enduro/trail category – something you will appreciate via the incredibly precise control and the ability to make bold choices every time you tackle a new trail.

The new rear triangle also incorporates Boost® spacing – the extra width produces an overall increase in both frame stiffness and power transfer as well as a massive increase in tire clearance, allowing for a wider range of condition-specific tire options – essential for racers on the Enduro World Series Circuit and for riders who want to make the most of every single day on the dirt.

The Mach 6 Carbon features acclaimed dw-link® suspension, dialed for long travel applications. The dw-link®’s famed anti-squat delivers non-stop traction, while the variable wheel travel path provides unmatched square-edge bump absorption and control on technical descents. The responsiveness and bottomless feel of this ride is matched only by the exceptionally efficient climbing capability for faster, easier transfers – getting you to the next killer descent before everyone else.

The Mach 6 Carbon is spec’d with the 2016 Fox Factory Kashima Float X shock with the new EVOL air sleeve, tuned specifically for enduro and trail applications on the Mach 6 Carbon. The new Float X features updated tuning for better support and control while the EVOL air sleeve significantly reduces the force required to initiate travel, for the ultimate in small bump compliance and better bottom-out resistance. When combined with the ultra-low friction Kashima coating, this design offers an incredibly plush feel with a wide range of damping adjustments. The Float X also offers three on-the-fly lever adjustments using the new Open, Medium and Firm options. While dw-link® is inherently efficient in every setting, the firm option is great for long fire road climbs or between stage transfers. These shock features are direct complements to dw-link® suspension tuning and patented position-sensitive anti-squat, giving riders even better traction on steep climbs and over rough trail.

All of our mountain bikes feature the PF92 bottom bracket. Collaboratively developed by our engineers and Shimano, this allows for wider pivots and better bearing support, both of which contribute to increased frame stiffness and strength as well as the best bearing longevity. Other essential details include post mount disc brake mounts for easy set up and weight savings, internal stealth dropper compatibility and Enduro Max cartridge bearings throughout. The Mach 6 Carbon is available in a five sizes to fit riders from 4’11” to 6’2”+ from XS to XL.
