Meet the Bird Aether 7 a new school short travel aggro machine

Bird Cycleworks releases the Bird Aether 7, a new option for fans of short travel, small wheel hardcore fun.

Following on from a huge range of quality full-suspension bikes designed in and for UK riders, Bird Cycleworks has today introduced another new bike to the range, the Bird Aether 7.

The Aether 7 could be the answer to your short travel, 27.5in wheeled dreams. With ‘just’ 130mm of rear-wheel travel and geometry based around a 140mm fork, the Aether 7 looks to have the ingredients to make for a fun and agile riding full-suspension bike.

But to be a Bird Cycleworks bike the geometry has to be spot on, and this is where the Aether 7 might beat other similar short-travel bikes. Short 425mm chainstays across the range hint at a bike that loves some back wheel action, while a slack 65-degree head angle and steep 76-degree seat post appear spot on for a modern enduro/trail bike.

Reach figures are extremely promising too. The XS framed bike measures in at 432mm, not much shorter than some brands medium frames. XL bikes gain almost 100mm on that with a reach of 527mm.
