Dreadnought forged a new path for performance high pivot bikes and cemented the platform's category-defying nature. It dealt handily with the demands of the World Cup Downhill circuit, revelled in the rigours of enduro racing, and endured lap after lap of abuse in the bike park, while still craving more. From the race track to the bike park and everything in between, Dreadnought has proven its unparalleled versatility.

Now it’s time for the big guns to get the V2 treatment. Dreadnought V2 carries the torch forward into a new realm of capability, giving riders even more firepower than ever before. Forbidden have taken their next-gen suspension system, seen on the class-leading Druid and Supernought, and applied it to the revered brawler of a bike. They haven't just upped the calibre, add more travel, and call it good. Forbidden have overhauled every detail to refine and distill its purpose into something that exhilarates.

From the helm of the Dreadnought, you see no obstacles, only opportunities.

Fear Nothing.

Key differences from V1 to V2;

V2 Trifecta Layout

The industry's most refined high pivot layout is now available on our 160mm Enduro/Bike Park platform. Dreadnought is a carefully concocted blend of Supernought speed and stability mixed with Druid's agility and pop. Delivering a bike that might have you reconsidering wearing a full-face helmet full-time.

Modular Dropouts

Wheel size configuration changes are achieved via modular dropouts. Meaningful geometry and weight bias adjustments are also be made via 27.5” +10mm, 27.5” -10mm, and 29” +10mm dropouts (available soon!). Giving riders the option to customize weight bias and handling characteristics to suit riding style or terrain type. 200mm direct brake mount included as standard. Dreadnought framekits are sold with MX and 29” dropouts.

Geometry Evolution

We collaborated with our factory race team and our team of test riders to gather feedback on the O.G. Dreadnought and the current V2 platform bikes. We opted for a more centered weight distribution that delivers intuitive handling in all situations and a larger rider sweet spot in the cockpit. Giving riders more confidence and comfort to trust both the bike and themselves when things get rowdy.

V2 Kinematics

The goal with Dreadnought was to maintain its uncanny ability to absolutely plough through rough terrain while giving riders more mid-stroke support to pump and generate speed from the ground. We’ve done this without giving up any sensitivity and grip, while also improving bottom-out control and optimizing braking characteristics.

We stock the Forbidden range of bikes in both Keswick and Grizedale. 

We offer 0% finance on the Forbidden range of bikes and frames, and can take cycle to work vouchers in full or part payment for them.
