Airborne Zeppelin Elite can best be compared to the Giant Yukon which comes at a $949 price tag, compare specs and see the value for yourself!
Airborne has a history of quality and performance. The Zeppelin Elite is no exception. The rugged aluminum frame is dressed up with sealed bearings connecting the main-frame to the 5” of single pivot, rear travel through the Rockshox Bar 2.1 Air shock . Balancing out the plush rear travel is the RockShox Tora 289, U-Turn suspension fork. The Tora 289 allows the pilot to dial the suspension from 85mm to 130mm of bump-conquering travel.
Putting the power through the mud is the FSA Alpha Drive crank churning the KMC X-9 chain through the SRAM X.7 shifters and X.9 rear derailleur. Holding all this power to the ground is the Alex DP17 Double Wall 32h disc specific wheelset and Kenda 2.1” MTB tires. Controlling all this accelerated activity are the Tektro Auriga Comp Hydraulic Disc brakes.
Up front, a Kalloy cockpit provides the control and strength that the world has come to expect from Kalloy products. Holding the rider in place is a sturdy WTB Speed V Sport saddle.
The combination of the proven frame design and world class components creates a ride that will elevate your game and open the door for that epic ride that has been on your mind for months. Now is the time to get on your Airborne and get out and ride.
