The Five Black Gold
January 06 2012
The Five has established itself as the UK’s best trail bike, a masterpiece of evolution and subtle refinement. Low-slung, fast handling and efficient, its versatility makes it the perfect all-rounder. Designed to complement the most up-to-date component advancements, everything works together to build the ultimate modern classic. So what’s the Five Black Gold? Everything you’ll ever need…
The Black Gold is our new Limited Edition build model, coming in under the Five Pro price point at £2699.99 it features the best components at maximum value.
Factory level Fox suspension brings top of the line performance, the Kashima coated RP23 and FIT RLC offering buttery smooth travel at minimum weight. The 2012 front end is matched to a Maxle swingarm, stepping up the stiffness and adding to its hard-riding credentials – the ultimate chassis. Avid brakes, RaceFace cranks and a 10-speed transmission keeps everything pro. We’ve been asked for it, we’ve come up with the goods.
Offered in one spec and looking resplendent in Jet Black, the 100 bikes keep it simple for maximum value for money. A RockShox Reverb as the only additional option, the Five Black Gold is our interpretation of the perfect build. Want something different or need more choice? Head back to the Pro, this one’s all about ‘the package’…
