Ellsworth's Dare lacks any real sense of fear, which is exactly what you need in a DH bike. The carbon fiber frame is designed for the biggest of the big riding: heart-in-mouth descents, scabrous rock gardens, and unbridled fun. Ellsworth decoupled suspension from braking and drivetrain forces to create their Instant Center Tracking suspension: it's fully active, ready to respond to bumps, rocks, and roots anytime. All the time. The efficiency and neutral behavior of the ICT allows you to attack grueling pedaling sections of the course like a viking with a battleaxe, while still staying dialed for insane absorption. The Dare employs internal cable routing, and a tapered head tube for strength, stiffness, and razor-fine steering.
