What Does ESD mean?
Everything Shredders Desire?
Evolved Singletrack Destroyer?
Extra Savage Deathmarcher?
If Mad Max rode a bike, it would be the Honzo ESD. It’s part Honzo, part monster, and with geometry derived from the Process X, it’s made for those who want to punish the trails.
A 63.5° headtube angle with a 150mm reduced offset fork makes for aggressive descending.
A Marzocchi Z1 Bomber fork keeps things plush up front.
A longer reach keeps things stable at high speeds.
The longer 435mm chainstays increase handling stability in conjunction with the longer reach.
The Honzo ESD ships with thru-axles.
The Honzo ESD comes with a custom headtube badge that holds special powers and wards off mosquitos and flat terrain.
The seat tube is short to allow for maximum travel dropper posts. It’s also steep which means you can climb faster than your friends.
Adjustable thru axle dropouts allow you to customize your ride.
