The Mobius excels at long rides on varied terrain that features punchy climbs and technical descents. This bike wants to be out all day, and excels at climbing without needing a mechanical lockout mechanism to transfer all your power to the pedals. Butted frame tubing adds to the bike’s dynamic compliance and gives the rider greater control over the bike as a whole. Short chainstays add traction and acceleration to the mix.
The Hallmarks: Dual suspension bikes have some notorious weaknesses, and with the Mobius we’ve worked to eliminate them. The pivot location, sealed bearings and shock type all give the Mobius superior small bump sensitivity with minimal pedal bob and superior anti-squat properties. The rear end is tight and stable in corners. Finally, the Mobius is competitively light, but not the lightest on the market. Seven will always prioritize long ride life, over achieving lightest possible weights.
The Quality: The Mobius’s titanium construction gives it an instant advantage over similar bikes made with different materials. As with any suspension bike, long-term quality is measured by its moving parts. For this bike we’ve used sealed bearings, not bushings, in all the critical locations and the industry standard Fox DPS shock. Our floating shock system isolates the frame from the compression, and that prolongs the life of the bike, and makes service less frequent and replacement parts less expensive.
