ABSOLUTE FUN


Way before other brands were doing the longer and lower geometry, Knolly was already on the case. The Knolly Endorphin is an absolute blast on the descents and it's ultra forgiving rear suspension makes light work of super technical climbs - those ones that have rocks and off camber slippery roots right in your line.

Like all Knollys the attention to detail is second to none, it has integrated ISCG05 tabs and internal routing (or external for the rear brake). Setup with the Cane Creek DB Inline coil shock - the rear suspension performance is superb.

Mullet in 2021?
The Endorphin was originally designed around 27.5" wheels front and rear - but we've discovered that this can be run as a 29"/27" mullet with a 130-140mm front fork and it's super balanced - as you can imagine this is just miles of fun, not too much travel, not too little - we thing it actually works better than the factory 27.5" wheel bike.

KNOLLY BIKES LIFETIME WARRANTY

Over the years we have realized that Knolly owners ride our products hard and often. This is great because that is exactly what we designed them for. Our goal from the beginning was to not only develop bikes that provide our loyal customers with an incredible riding experience, but to also provide solid support as well. Everyone here at Knolly is a rider so we take the engineering and manufacturing of our products very seriously, and we have partnered with one of the premier factories in the world to produce our bikes. We make some of the best product on the market and we are prepared to back that up by offering a Limited Lifetime Warranty* (to the original owner) on our frames along with an awesome crash replacement program.

What the frame warranty covers:
- Defects in materials and workmanship
- Bearings and fasteners for six months from time of purchase
- Rear shocks are covered by their respective manufacturer, typically for one year from the time of purchase


What the frame warranty does not cover:
- Normal wear and tear
- Damage to the finish of the frame from the application of frame protector coverings/sticker or     adhesive backed sheets
- Damage due to crashing and or abuse
- Damage from using non factory specified fasteners and bearings
- Damage from using non factory approved rear shocks
- Damage or failure due to poor, negligent or lack of maintenance
-  Damage due to improper installation of components
- Water damage to bearings, decals and finishes from high pressure washers and hoses
 - Dealer labour and costs for shipping warranty components to Knolly Bikes

What will void your frame warranty:
 - Modification of the frame in any way
 - Use of unapproved shock sizes for any chosen model

KNOLLY BIKES FRAME CRASH REPLACEMENT POLICY
Our crash replacement policy is designed to support customers with frame failures that are not covered under our warranty policy. This mainly includes failures that are not a result of defective materials or workmanship (i.e. crashing). It does not cover frames damaged due to installation and use of components that are inappropriate for a particular frame's intended purpose, such as: using an 8 inch DH fork on a trail bike, etc.

THE BOTTOM LINE
We stand behind our products, and they are designed to last a very long time. Regardless of the reason that you need our assistance, whether it’s a warranty situation or a crash replacement situation, our goal is to get you back on the trails as soon as humanly possible. We take pride in providing great service, since we know that’s an important part of keeping you in the Knolly family for as long as you’re able to ride a bike.

REVIEWS

"The Endorphin is going to shine under arider who values cleaning any and every climb that they're faced with,and someone who is especially concerned about having a good time, be itduring an all-day epic or by trying cheeky lines that put more of anemphasis on fun than speed. It's not a machine made for you to try anddrop your buddies on the burliest of descents, although a skilled riderwill be able to do exactly that, but rather a bike designed for exactlyhow so many of us like to ride"

FOURBY4 SUSPENSION DELIVERS TRACTION IN SPADES WHILE BEING FULLY ACTIVE UNDER BRAKING. ACTIVE SUSPENSION WHETHER YOU LOVE CLIMBING OR DESCENDING-THIS IS WHAT INSPIRES CONFIDENCE

TRACTION INDUCING FOURBY4

The Fourby4 suspension platform is the cornerstone of Knolly Bikes. Inspired by Formula One auto racing strut-style suspension, Knolly’s patented Fourby4 suspension technology provides freedom in design and execution that no other design in the industry can tout. This freedom means that Knolly can design each model from the ground up and manipulate wheel path and shock progression completely independently. This allows each model to have suspension rate curves that are generally linear to progressive, which is important because it means your shock doesn’t have to ‘save the day’ by providing lots of bottoming resistance, as it would on a bike with a falling rate curve. This helps keep your shock from being over-worked and over-heating on long downhills, which can affect shock performance. This also helps maintain normal shock service intervals. Each of our bikes have rate curves and leverage ratios that are implemented for a certain type of riding(trail, AM, DH)


"So Knolly’s unique and multi-patented Fourby4 Suspension is quite simply the most advanced and highest performing suspension design used in the mountain bike industry."


LIFETIME WARRANTY

There is no doubt Knolly's are made to be ridden hard and being born on the shore means they need to be tough to take the abuse and aggressive riding they are built for.  A true test of the strength and durability is Knolly's Limited Lifetime Warranty. Knolly also offers an excellent crash replacement program


Arguable one of the finest aluminium bikes on the market. NOT A DETAIL SPARED - Hassle free internal cable routing, dual-row Angular contact bearings, custom machined titanium axles and the CNC mitered tubeset for gap Free weld junctions. all backed by a lifetime warranty



HUMAN CENTRIC SIZING

Mountain Biking is for everyone - Every size and every gender - Knolly has been making bikes for 16 years - bikes that get all riders out on the trails.

Because Knolly frames feature a continuous seat tube they allow for a full range of seat heights: on many other frames, the seat tube is either bent or interrupted by the shock allowing only a restricted range of seat heights (this problem is exasperated as frame sizes become smaller). Our frames feature both a continuous seat tube as well as a low “dropped seat height” - meaning the seat actually travels forward and out of the way - which allows riders of all sizes to get farther back on the bike when the terrain demands it.


One of the side benefits of Knolly's Fourby4 design is the ability to accommodate smaller riders, even with up to 170-200mm of rear suspension travel. This keeps the shock mounted low which means we can drop our top tubes for better stand-over clearance. It also means the center of mass on the frame is low and that equates to exceptional handling in technical terrain. Smaller riders can run a 150mm dropper post on our bikes due to the low stand-over height and straight seat tube.


Sizing these days is a hugely debatable topic - everyone is telling me to upsize, go for more reach. Much Confusion? You can feel confident knowing  that Knolly has thought through the details thoroughly and all their bikes offer a balanced ride and proper weight distribution for their intended purpose.

HUMAN SPECIFIC GEOMETRY

Because Knolly frames feature a continuous seat tube they allow for a full range of seat heights: on many other frames, the seat tube is either bent or interrupted by the shock allowing only a restricted range of seat heights (this problem is exasperated as frame sizes become smaller). Our frames feature both a continuous seat tube as well as a low “dropped seat height” - meaning the seat actually travels forward and out of the way - which allows riders of all sizes to get farther back on the bike when the terrain demands it.


In an effort to help you find the right frame size we reached out to our Knation of riders and asked them these three questions: How tall are you? What is your inseam? What size Knolly do you ride?​The data below is from real riders, human beings that actually ride our product, so it is a great reference point to help you chose a frame size. Of course this is still just a guide but this is a great example for those riders that fall right in between sizes. Now you can see what other riders have chosen.
