Sure, you can decide to buck the status quo, or you could just huck it. We chose the latter with the all-new Status 140. The result? Not just a new bike, but an entirely new platform that's changed our whole understanding of what a do-it-all bike can actually do.
But what's with the different-sized wheels? So glad you asked. Take the smaller wheelbase and shorter chainstays made possible by having a 27.5-inch rear wheel and pair them with the increased traction and rolling speed made possible by a 29-inch wheel up front, and you've got a bike that's ready to throw down.
Or, think of it as the ability to flick right but plow left into a tech-y switchback, straight-line it through that longer-than-you-thought stretch of chunder without breaking a sweat, and throw down some serious flair on your local flow trail, all in one nice, tight package. The Status 140 also adopts our Style-Specific Sizing that not only lets you find the right fit, but also get your desired reach and wheelbase to really let your preferred handling characteristics come alive
Focused on fun and featuring our Mixed-Wheel Trail Geometry, the Status frameset is a fewer frills, all thrills FSR delivery system crafted from our hard-charging—and hard-wearing—M5 alloy and is designed not only to take a hit, but keep asking for more.
