Structure Cycleworks SCW 1 Mountain Bike

Companies are hard at work looking for the next big innovation when it comes to outdoor exploration, but it’s been a while since we’ve seen something as interesting as this abnormal setup. The team at Structure Cycleworks has decided to throw discipline to the wayside with their new SCW 1 Foundation mountain bike — a beastly build that pays no mind to established conventions.

At first glance, the SCW 1 looks just like any other trail-ready bike — as long as you’re only looking at the rear end. A proprietary linkage “suspension chassis” that mimics the dampening system on a traditional downhill bike has been redefined, reformatted, and refit to the front, acting as a replacement for the traditional telescoping fork system. If being the only rider on the trail with this technological wonder isn’t enough, don’t worry — Structure hasn’t skimped out on noteworthy parts to accompany the new suspension. We Are One “The Convert” wheels, Magura MT7 Pro brake calipers and levers, and an SRAM Eagle XX1 groupset combine with Cane Creek peripherals to make the SCW 1 a force to be reckoned with when it comes to multi-trail destruction.
