Blends high modulus super stiff and light T-700 unidirectional carbon fiber with innovative design features including oversized tapered head tube, massive downtube and BB92 bottom bracket delivering a high level of torsional stiffness to optimize power transfer.
Haro’s 3rd generation of Flightline aluminum series of bikes. Custom specification and formed lightweight aluminum tubing fully re-designed to provide reduced weight, lower stand-over height, better handling and overall increased performance.
Strong and durable CNC machined interchangeable dropouts designed to give the option of running a single speed or multi-gear rear derailleur and wheel.
Our new 26" and 27.5" Plus models provide confidence-boosting control and traction, as well as shorter braking distances over any type of rough terrains. 26" and 27.5" Plus wheelsets provide comfort and suspension to our Subvert hardtail models as well.
All our 27.5" Shift Plus and Subvert bikes are spec'd with complete TCS tubeless-ready wheelsets featuring WTB rims and foldable WTB or Kenda tires with Aramid beads with high thread-per-inch count for lower rotational weight and surprising climbing prowess.
Used on most of our 2017 Shift, Subvert and FLC models, 15mm oversize thru-axles for suspension forks with closed dropouts design provide increased rigidity for additional confidence and control of the front wheel & steering when the action gets rough.
Available on all Shift models, our optimized low forward swing-arm axle position reduces squatting of the rear suspension while applying power to the cranks. This improves traction at the rear wheel and balance between front and rear suspension.
We have selected the width of our 26"+ and 27.5"+ tires in accordance with the requirements and specifications of each model.
The 2017 Plus entry level models like the FL Two 26" +, Double Peak Comp 27.5" + and the Subvert HT3, due to frame requirement or from our experience in riding Plus bikes, are equipped with easy rolling, light 2.8" front and rear tires for a more efficient pedaling effort with reduced rotating weight, optimized tire clearance and traction.
The top of the line Subvert HT5 and HT7 models with their “1x" gearing and offset chainring, which offer more clearance, are equipped with two 3.0" tires to enjoy the full benefit of the Plus size experience.
The Shift Plus with its 130mm of front and rear suspension travel is fitted with new lightweight WTB i35 rims and 2.8" Ranger TCS tires in order to reduce friction and rotating weight to fully benefit from a more precise and quicker handling bike with lighter TCS compatible wheels.
All the 2017 Shifts feature Enduro bearings, leader in the bicycle industry for any type of bearing. With suspension pivots equipped with Enduro bearings, our Shift bikes will absorb bumps faster and with less maintenance than with other bearing brands.
Air adjustable suspension forks and shocks feature an adjustable air spring, which provides quick and easy sag set-up for any type of rider, style and weight. Easily adjust and balance your suspension while experiencing light weight forks and shocks for a high-end riding experience.
Our 142mm wide rear hubs with 12mm alloy thru-axles for closed dropouts design provide increased rear wheel and rear triangle rigidity. Gain up to 30% more stiffness compared to regular quick release dropouts while keeping installation and removal of the rear wheel easy with the Shimano E-type quick-release design. All our 2017 frames using E-type axles feature an indexed axle-nut lock for easy use and a steady Q/R lever position.
Available on the Shift S3 model, our Single Pivot design offers a simple, fully efficient suspension system with a reduced number of pivots and bearings for an easy and low-cost maintenance.
All our 2017 Shift Plus and Subvert 27.5" Plus bikes feature Boost specs. The wider path for front and rear hubs (110 & 148mm) provides increased rigidity for 27.5" Plus size wheels when under heavy riding and cornering conditions.With a Boost 148 rear hub and compatible crankset, the wider chainline (+3mm) offers more clearance between sprocket, chain and 27.5" Plus rear tires.
All models equipped with Boost 148 rear hub come with an E-type 178mm wide alloy thru-axle and nut with indexed axle-nut lock for easy use and a steady Q/R lever position. All 27.5" Plus bikes can be ridden with standard 29" wheelsets, which, when assembled with Boost hubs, benefit from the same stiffness as regular 27.5" wheels.
The new Haro Four-Bar suspension design offers a more progressive rear suspension function with its additional central linkage and rear wheel pivots to optimize shock behavior, isolate the rear shock from braking forces and keep the suspension active when needed. It also provides increased rigidity between front and rear triangle.
