CARBON JACK THE RIPPER
The new Carbon jack 29 could be the antidote to all those indentikit designs

Until now, if you’d wanted to get a bike from Antidote, it was frame only – choose online from the Darkmatter or the original Carbonjack, then build the bike up at home. That’s fine for riders with the time, skills and inclination, but what about the rest of us? Well, the new Carbonjack 29 could open up the brand to more riders; there are two build options, with either Öhlins TTX coil suspension or Fox Float XT – with an air spring, of course.

It’s also a 29er, with 10mm less travel than the smaller-wheeled Carbonjack, which brings it firmly into big trail bike territory and the reach of more riders… if they can handle the hefty price tag. How big? €7,199 for a fully built bike with Fox suspension, while the frame and Öhlins TTX shock is €4,399.
