Hello Operator? Please Show Us the 2020s!

We believe in the motto “Go big or go home.” With the carbon Operator, we went big, so you can go faster. This is the racehorse of downhill bikes that crushed World Cup downhill tracks all over the world in 2018 underneath Connor Fearon. With the ability to run 29” or 27.5” wheels, adjustable chainstay lengths, and an adjustable reach, it’s fully customizable to your liking. Whether you’re racing your local downhill track, slaying laps in Whistler, or standing atop the World Cup Podium, the Operator and the Operator CR are the ultimate downhill machines.

We had one goal with the Operator CR: go as fast as possible. We put the Operator CR to the test with Connor Fearon all last season and the results did not disappoint. With two positions offering 15mm of rear wheel adjustments and 10mm of reach adjustment, it’s easier to control the feel of the bike to get the ride you want. While we spec the bike as a 29er, you are able to run 27.5” wheels as well. Shorter or longer, 29” or 27.5”, you have the power to customize your ride. Front and rear RockShox suspension, powerful SRAM Code brakes, and Maxxis Assegai 3C tires round out this innovative and wickedly fast race machine.

The Operator is a familiar face in both the bike park and downhill racing scene. With the RockShox Boxxer RC fork and a 200mm RockShox Super Deluxe coil trunnion shock, the ride is plush and ready for big hits. With a SRAM drivetrain and brakes, and Maxxis tires, the Operator is a proven staple in the downhill world.
