To say that we at Knolly are stoked on this frame would be a massive understatement: 3 years in development, the 2010 Podium embodies everything that we have learned since the start of Knolly Bikes. The Podium is purebred racing performance: 35 BB height 13.9” , a 64 degree head angle and one of the most acclaimed suspension systems on the market lead to a high performance bike that’s fast, stable and predictable in every situation. Four by 4 linkage technology enables you to brake later into the corners, sprint quicker out of the them and pedal like mad in between!
This bike is fast – and we mean really fast – yet it’s still super nimble in the tight technical sections. The Podium is designed to balance the needs of a light weight racing bike while still providing the lateral rigidity to hold the tightest lines through corners.
