The Airborne Guardian and Goblin 29ers are the best selling bikes in our line-up. At $599 and $1199, there are no other bikes on the market that come close to them. Over the past year we've had several requests from folks who want something that falls in between those two bikes in terms of price and spec. Like we always say, part of what makes us different is we are small and take the time to listen to our customers........
Enter the Seeker 29er.
The Seeker shares the exact same frame as the Goblin: 6061-T6 aluminum with hydroformed tubes, tapered headtube, and increased mud clearance. A frame that's been designed, ride-tested, and raced by Airborne employees and our riders. We've put a complete SRAM X5 2x10 groupset on it that includes SRAM's X5 36/22 cranks with outboard GXP bottom bracket. More importantly, we've spec'd a 100mm Rockshox Recon TK Gold Solo Air fork on the bike; so folks can fine-tune the fork to their ride-style and weight.
A sealed cartridge bearing Weinman double-walled wheelset wrapped in Geax AKA rubber handles the rolling duties. Cockpit is Airborne seatpost, stem, and low-rise handlebars. Brakes are hydraulic Avid Elixir 1's. A Selle San Marco saddle rounds out the spec.
All of that for $929.
No other major bike companies can come close to that spec for that price. Just take a look at the comparison chart below.
For around $1000 (with US shipping cost factored in) you get a great 29er XC bike with touches that are ordinarily found on much more expensive bikes:
6061-T6 Alu frame with butted main tubes and Tapered HT
100mm Recon Tk Gold Solo Tapered Air fork with lock-out
2x10 groupset with outboard bearing crank
full sealed bearings
18" Weight: 28.9lbs.
