OVERDO IT.

The most successful Enduro platform in the world evolves into an all-new race weapon with the 2015 Jekyll. Working with Enduro World Champion Jerome Clementz, we made his winning bike even winning-er with all-new geometry, SuperMax front suspension, a new Fox DYAD rear shock tune with increased travel, and of course, 27.5” wheels.

You don’t have to be Jerome to appreciate its perfect-for -Enduro dual nature - you just have to want the most versatile all-mountain bike out there.

Jekyll is:

  • An adept climber and aggressive descender.
  • True two-bikes-in one performance that no other all-mountain bike can match.
  • The perfect enduro machine.
  • Rider profile:

    Enduro racers, or all-mountain shredders who want to climb fast, but want to descend even faster across the whole range of mountain terrain.

    TRAVEL

    90mm to 150mm on-the-fly adjustable rear travel. (*some models have 150mm travel X-Fusion P1RL pull shock with platform lockout.)

    DYAD RT2

    The same two-shocks-in-one DYAD technology found on the other OverMountain bikes, but with shock stroke, air spring volumes and damping created specifically for the Jekyll.

    ATTITUDE ADJUST

    Switch between modes on the DYAD and the bike’s geometry changes too. Steeper and more nimble in Elevate mode, lower and more stable in Flow mode.

    BALLISTEC CARBON / SMARTFORMED ALLOY

    Using fibers developed by the military for ballistic armoring, this high-strength carbon construction process yields a frame that’s lighter than aluminum and pound-for-pound stronger than steel. The alloy versions use our ultra sophisticated SmartFormed aluminum construction for a frame that’s light and strong.

    ECS-TC SYSTEM

    Clamped, 15mm thru-axles in the shock linkage and swingarm pivot, as well as double bearings at the rear dropouts eliminate flex and provide unmatched center-stiffness for complete control.

                        I live in beautiful Park City and have over 400 miles of trails. This bike absolutely rips everything around town. There is nothing this bike can't handle!

                              This bike rides like a BMW M3 with TMS tuning. It rides on rails in the turns and the DH is plush but plenty of feedback to the rider. the suspension changes for uphill an gives you a great boost in your uphill speed as well as the carbon wheels being so light. This bike is easy to work on and needs no upgrades. I have picked up several KOM on routes that I didn't have before on my other bike. Times seriously improved on each section.

                                  Looking for a bike that's able to change it's personaility on the fly?! I've been riding the 2013 Jeykll Carbon 1 for a couple months now and it is one plush, light weight, do anything, ride!. The bike truely is capable of just about anything. 12 mile climbs - Check!, 12 miles of DH - Check!, 30 mile crosscountry rides - check! The addition of the fox 36, reynolds rims and chain guide make this the Enduro and Super D machine of choice! Lock it out and it climnbs like a goat! Looking for a one bike quiver...this is it!!!

                                    This bike is pretty sweet. It rides amazing on the descends and has a lock out feature on both shocks to make climbing a breeze. If you want a bike that can handle all types of terrain, even to the point of DH trails, this is the bike for you.
