After noticing that various 29ers were either too fixed or too jittery, Brodie Bikes introduces two innovative machines for 2012, one of which is the Khan. This is a carefully designed 29er mountain bike, which is dialed in to three major aspects, which are short 437mm chain stays, adjusted fork trail, and an 51mm fork offset.

Brodie Bikes spent two years for the research and development of the Khan to steer clear of suspension and frame limitations, which are common among 29ers.
