Hoback150- All Mountain & Enduro

$2,999.00

170mm front, 150mm rear travel in a simple, elegant package with perfectly balanced geometry. Modern without being extreme. Effective without being overly complex. The Hoback150 allows you to efficiently climb any mountain without being an XC racer. Descend any trail without being a DH pro. This is a true all mountain machine.

This bike is named after the Hoback River, a tributary of the Snake River. It winds its way from the top of the Rock Mountains in Wyoming to the Columbia, eventually meeting the Ocean in the Pacific Northwest.

All Westward Bikes are manufactured with aerospace grade Titanium. This strikes the perfect balance of strength, weight, and durability while minimizing the enormous waste typically associated with carbon manufacture.

All Westward Bikes use grade 9 Ti-3A-2.5v titanium, and are hand welded to beyond industry standards. Titanium, as used in cycling, is lighter than aluminum for a given strength and has far greater fatigue life. Its also more impact resistant than the majority of carbon fiber monocoque frames,  with only steel being stronger. Like steel titanium can utilize smaller tubing geometry than aluminum and carbon fiber, allowing for a more flexible, compliant ride. In the road biking world where people subject their bodies to hours of riding with no suspension, steel and titanium frames are renown and coveted for their compliant ride. In mountain biking, this doesn’t mean a noodlely, flexy frame. It means increased traction in off-camber turns, reduced hand fatigue, and “pop” when ridden aggressively.

Titanium strikes the perfect balance between weight, compliance, and durability, as do our bikes. Our geometry is the perfect balance for a truly all mountain bike that is at home on any trail. All sizes have modern geometry, with good standover and the ability to run a water bottle in the frame. The seat tube is also nice and short to maximize the dropper post length that can be run in each size.
