With the efficient suspension platforms available now, many riders have switched to full suspension in most disciplines. Hearing the word often conjures the image of super-light XC race rigs, forgetting that they can extend far beyond that. There are plenty of riders enjoying the simplicity and challenge that comes with plowing down gnarly trails with no rear suspension. Bird Cycleworks has introduced a specific race series for these people!

We’re super stoked to announce a UK/Worlds first Hardtail series – the Bird Hardtail Super Series, a cross-discipline race series for grass roots hardtail racing! Bird Cycleworks have teamed up with Gravity Project and QECP Collective to create the Bird Hardtail Super Series. Spread across the 5 races of the Gravity Project Downhill series, and the 2 QECP enduros you can race your hardtail to prove you are the UKs #1 hardtail gravity racer.

Time to get rowdy on hardtails!
