    Summary

    Expirience with the Forbidden Druid GX FX Mullet

    Forbidden Druid GX FX Mullet Review The Canadians from Forbidden design bikes with exactly one goal in mind. Maximum downhill performance. And so it comes that even the Druid GX FX Mullet with 150 mm_front suspension travel on the fork is given a high-pivot rear end, which is otherwise only known from purebred enduros. The high main pivot point allows the rear wheel to first move to the rear when compressing the rear shock, which should make the characteristics, despite tightly measured 130 millimeters of travel in the rear, particularly smooth even in rough terrain. The combination of a 65 degree head tube angle and a long wheelbase calms down the handling of the Druid GX FX Mullet, even if you ride fast. Anyone who has no special preferences for the seating position can´t go wrong with the Forbidden Fully. Because the saddle takes the balanced approach. On climbs, other bikes in the above 8000 Euro present a little better performance than the Druid GX FX Mullet. One should not forget: the geometry is the heart of a mountain bike. For 8599 Euro, Forbidden provides more than the competitors in the same price range.
