What’s the single-most word that comes to mind when looking for the perfect long-travel trail bike? LIMITLESS.

You require a bike that is ready to take on whatever… wherever. From pedaling those seemingly endless fire roads to the top, or traversing the most demanding singletrack, to taking on the chunkiest most challenging descents - and all of those once-feared trail obstacles in between - the Haste LT was built to provide you with limitless confidence.

With its 150mm front/140mm rear travel and progressive high pivot AFS suspension design, the Haste LT’s identity lies in its profound traction capabilities. It won’t hesitate to devour whatever is in its path. It’s not just in those super challenging and technical climbs where the Haste has you covered. The LT will also stand up staunchly in your most intense high-speed activities, involving everything from aggressive cornering to taking on the biggest of hits, all while keeping you balanced and ready for what’s next. In other words, it performs exactly the way you need it to… predictably.


Confidence inspired. Ride uncompromised.

SUSPENSION

HIGH PIVOT AFS

15mm of REARWARD AXLE PATH. The way we see it, this is the way forward in mid to long travel mountain bike segments. By "forward" we mean that once you ride it you immediately notice the lack of hang up and hold back deflection. The bike just wants to reset and move onto more chunk. You might think this is only a descending benefit, but it also positively impacts traction on the climbs, especially in loose, technical up and over situations, where required weight shifting can result in a spun out rear. Because the wheel moves with the bump, traction remains more constant. Lastly, the new design still delivers a solid 120% anti-squat platform to mash on.

ELIMINATION OF BRAKE BRACKET

Thanks to the high pivot configuration, the dropout no longer counter rotates as it goes through travel. The new dropout plate effectively becomes the floating bracket, keeping the rotor clocked to the same spot on the caliper throughout travel and delivering fully active braking with 30% anti-rise at sag. With the brake bracket out of the way there is room to accommodate a 203 diameter rotor for increased stopping power. The video illustrates that in both Eminent designs the rotor stays clocked to the caliper throughout suspension travel.

PROGRESSIVE LINKAGE

The graph says it all. Dead linear, 30% progressivity or in other words a virtually straight diagonal line as the bike moves through travel. But what does it all mean? Because it is linear, there is better midstroke support which equates to less "wallow". As it moves deeper into travel the shock provides increasing bottom out resistance. All of this allows for a lighter shock compression tune (great for coil), resulting in a more supple and supportive ride. This is achieved in part by the placement of pivots, but also by the addition of the lower shock linkage, which works in concert with the upper pivot to achieve the desired leverage ratio.

FRAME FEATURES

CONTINUOUS SEAT TUBE

With the elimination of the previous design shock tunnel, the new design provides a massive uninterrupted 308mm (L & XL) and 288 (M) seat post insertion. The standard of long 34.9mm diameter droppers are good to go. Speaking of clearance, we've lowered the stand over by an inch as well. Lastly, we've steepened up the STA to 77° (MT) and 78° (LT).

HALF DEGREE FLIP CHIP

Integrated at the upper shock bolt for easy access and quick adjustment, the flip chip will allow for a half degree of adjustability: 63.5/64 (MT), 64.5/65 (LT).

SUPER BOOST & KEYED AXLE

Vital MTB called the AFS rear end on our last bike, "exceptionally stiff", but when it comes to lateral stiffness, you can't have too much. So we looked at where we could improve it further. The first step was moving to Superboost 157 hub spacing, which it gets a stronger & stiffer wheel. But that wasn't enough. The real improvements are The new dropout design which also integrates a unique keyed rear axle that locks the two dropout plates together, increasing torsional stiffness in high stress circumstances.

RUBBERIZED FRAME PROTECTION

Nobody wants a loud bike from too much chain slap. So, we added a rubberized chain stay guard to help cut down on any chain slap noise that may occur. Sick of rocks smashing against your bottom bracket and ruining that beautiful paint? Worry no more, because we’ve taken care of that with a rubberized down tube guard which will keep things quite and preserve the integrity of your paint and help your bike retain its value. At the end of the day, this is one super quiet (& rugged) bike!

FRAME STORAGE MOUNTS

The new Haste offers a standard water bottle mount on the down tube as well as additional mounting points on the underside of the top tube. This will allow you to use many aftermarket strap and storage systems while still allowing for a regular size water bottle to fit below. Now you can carry your tools, trail repair items and water on your frame and off your back. Say goodbye to that cumbersome backpack.
