For 2011, Morewood made some changes with its Makulu downhill bike. The modifications were based on pertinent feedback over the past two years like that from the World Cup team in 2009 and 2010. Coming out as one of the leading DH bikes in the market, the 2011 Morewood Makulu now comes in three sizes, small, medium and large.
The modified Makulu now has low leverage linkage which makes it more progressive. Added benefit would be making it more compatible with different brands of new components and parts in the market like Fox DHX and Cane Creek Double Barrel. It also has a 15x12mm rear axle.
The frame underwent some aesthetic changes. Instead of the curved top tube, a straight tube replaced it. This gives extra stiffness around the front triangles. The 2011 Morewood Makulu also features an 83mm bottom bracket an an ISCG-05 chain mount.
