Foes Ridgeback 29″

XC / Trail Mountain Bike

$2599 Base Price

Our Ridgeback 29″ alloy Trail bike was designed for maximum efforts and all day racing. For 2023, we’ve made significant updates to the geometry including a longer top tube, steeper seat tube angle and slacker head tube angle. These changes are in line with our goal to make it a more balanced and capable trail bike. We also updated the design of the frame by utilizing a one piece CNC machined design for the lower shock mount and main linkage pivot providing weight savings and strength.

The Ridgeback uses a monocoque top tube and ovalized down tube, which are a signature of Foes mountain bikes. In addition to the craftsmanship, the monocoque and ovalized construction provides superior strength and stiffness. The frame uses our low leverage progressive linkage system with 135mm of rear wheel travel. Internal cable routing is a simple task with our new removable cable guide system.

Whether it’s 6, 12, or 24 hours of endurance, the Ridgeback can float you across the finish line and be ready to tear it up the next the day. Performance is what Foes is all about, and the Ridgeback will deliver every time!
