Foes Racing launched its new Hydro DH Racing Bike at the Interbike 2010. The 2011 Hydro was created after a thorough regimen of testing and trial with tough riders and on different types of rugged terrain.
The 2011 Foes Hydro DH Racing Bike maintains its standard signature geometry and make up of lateral stiffness which defines its rigidity and solidness, its fastness, stability and adaptability in all types of terrain.
Now, its hand crafted aluminum frame is tunable and acceptable to a variant of shocks from 3½” to 10½” shocks namely by Elka, Cane Creek, Fox, Marzoochi, Rock Shox and their very own Curnut. It could get to 8¼” travel at the rear.
Its basic geometry and features are found on its 6061 aluminum frame which is hand crafted in USA. It has a 210mm (8¼”) tunable and progressive linkage driven travel and a slacker 1.5” head tube. It also features a complete compliment of bearings which is sealed in 83mm bottom bracket shell and a replaceable ISCG 05 chain guide mount.

The frame alone with Fox Van RC has a retail price of $2399 and a complete DH racing bike with SRAM parts and Rock Shox suspension has a tag price of $4799.
