Forbidden Dreadnought V2 RS GX S +

Regular price£7,299.00
VAT included.

Already one of the most hard hitting Enduro bikes out there, tested on everything from the World Cup DH circuit to the Enduro World Series, the V1 Dreadnought was a well established classic. 

The new V2 overhauls and refines every aspect of the design. Suspension switches to a Horst link platform to improve rear end performance in the rough and under braking. An improved idler and chain wrap increases pedal efficiency and tweaked geometry improves balance and handling even further. Add to that extra front and rear travel and the V2 is a bike ready to take on almost anything - it's even compatible with dual crown forks for bike park or DH builds.

At The Heart Of The Trails

Based on Innerleithen High Street in the Tweed Valley our shop lies  in the shadows of the infamous Golfie. An Enduro World Series venue and legendary in the UK mountain bike scene as one of the most prolific and exciting mountains to ride in the UK.  The Tweed Valley and the 100+ km of trails that stretch out from our front door have proven to become a meca for gravel, MTB and road cycling  and our staff are out, rain or shine experiencing it all. We're set up to provide you the best advice and select the products to stock that are the best value, best to ride, most eco friendly and will last you the longest out on the trail.

From Riding to Retail

Our business began as Dirt School in 2006, a mountain bike coaching company set up to deliver the best learning and support a mountain biker could ever want. From World championship wins to the award winning BASE college course, we've experienced and forged it all. Our evolution led to the formation of Tweed Valley Guides and now Tweed Valley Bikes too, allowing us to help you buy the right equipment, and be able to ride with you on the best trails and help you learn how to get the most out of it. Our shop has genuinely grown from the trail.
