Interbike 2013: New Redline d880 FS 29er

This year Redline is carrying on their popular hardtail models, but they’ve also announced their first-ever full suspension mountain bike.

The Redline d880 is an FS 29er with 100mm of front suspension and 110mm of rear suspension. This seems a tad odd since most designers choose to run more suspension up front if there’s any difference at all, but since we haven’t had time on the bike personally, we can’t comment on the ride quality. However, the extra 10mm of rear suspension suggests you could swap out the front fork for a 120 or 125 to turn the 880 into a slightly slacker, more aggressive rig.

For 2014, the 880 is only available with an aluminum frame. Reported weight on the 880 is 27.1 pounds, and the XT-spec’ed high-end model will reportedly retail for $3,749. The lower-end model will retail for $2,749.
