  • Variations
  • trailfox TF03 29 SLX

The Swiss army knife just got a longer blade

In the trailfox, we've created a frame whose geometry delivers the full wish-list to meet the demands of aggressive all-mountain riding. It is bigger, more aggressive, and more capable than ever before. Sharing geometry and based on the same design ideas as the trailfox TF01, the TF03 was designed for those looking for a capable, yet economical bike that will let them experience the thrill of enduro riding.

Efficient

The TF03 frame is made of triple-butted and hydroformed aluminum, with a stiffness profile on par with the full carbon TF01 model.

Confidence inspiring

The relaxed angles, low center of gravity, wide bars and short stem of the TF03 give you the control you need on steep, technical sections of trail, or at high speeds. The big wheels increase stability and offer better grip and rollover in technical sections of trail.

Agile

The short chain stays, short stem and low bottom bracket are the keys to the agility you experience on the trailfox. This agile feel, together with the sure-footedness of the big wheels, allows you to own the terrain on a whole new level.

Reviews

Big wheels, long and slack geometry, a lot of suspension travel – it’s a formula made for letting fly downhill. We expected it to be sluggish and a handful in the tight stuff but it wasn’t. We certainly had to grab it by the scruff of the neck and dictate what we wanted but that's a great thing, not a negative, in our book. It needs to be ridden aggressively – at 100 percent all of the time.
Ben Haworth, August 2014
