Knolly Fugitive LT Bike Review

On first inspection, the combination of the Fugitive LT’s build and mid-length travel might seem a little off.

However, once things get moving, the bike’s feedback puts everything into perspective. The Code R brakes and Fox 36 allude to the bike's charging capabilities, while the 135mm of rear travel and Fourby4 linkage deliver a lively and responsive interpretation of the trail. With an uncanny ability to carry speed, a low bottom bracket that provides stability in the corners and consistently reactive ride feedback, the Fugitive LT is the epitome of less is more.
