Why Choose Seven’s Dual Suspension System?

Nearly three decades ago, Seven’s R&D team worked on the world’s first titanium dual suspension bike. Our four founders were mountain bike racers. Throughout our history, we’ve partnered with the smartest suspension designers the industry has ever known. Our suspension bikes have helped racers climb countless podiums.

Seven has a wider and deeper range of suspension bike offering than most companies, large or small. A quick perusal of our suspension categories provides insight. Some key differentiators of Seven’s suspension designs include:

  1. Suspension Design Experience: 30,000+ bikes built. 22-years of building. Seven’s 4th generation suspension. Previously worked with the best suspension designers in the world including Dave Weagle and Paul Turner.
  2. True Custom: To your riding style. Any type of handling and geometry tuning. 29er and 27.5” wheels. Thoughful parts compatibility.
  3. Advanced Holistic Suspension Design: This includes Seven’s Balance Control System (BCS) and Virtual Pivot Track (VPT) designs. Both unique concepts that make for some of the best, personalized suspension performance possible.
  4. Titanium: Tough, durable, enhances suspension performance, impervious to weather.

To learn more about all the reasons to choose Seven, read our suspension value proposition, dig into our suspension technology details, learn about our unique Balance Control System (BCS), get a handle on our Virtual Pivot Track (VPT) designs, and learn about our universal suspension design elements, too.

Choosing the right wheel size: 27.5” or 29”

We offer all of our suspension bikes in both 27.5” and 29” configurations. We will even build with a front 29” and rear 27.5” if you so desire. We're agnostic on wheel size. Our goal is to provide you the wheel system you want.

To learn why one size may work better for you over another size, check out Seven’s wheel system chooser.

Determining your ideal mountain bike wheel size is fairly straightforward. This may sound surprising given all the endless chatter about the critical subtleties of that 0.75” radius difference.

Fortunately, Seven builds every model in either wheel size. Very rare for a bike company. The industry standard is for a bike brand to push a wheel size because that’s what they offer, or that’s what they have too much inventory of. Seven builds each bike to order so we can deliver what’s truly best for you with no other agenda.

There is rarely a perfect wheel system for every condition on every ride. And, both current popular wheels — the stalwart 29” and the feisty 27.5” — are excellent in most situations. Fortunately, deciding which wheel system is ideal for your Seven is usually simple. Our chart below may be helpful in simplifying what might seem complicated, or we’re happy to help you choose the optimal wheel during your Seven design interview, if you’d like.
