All Maverick.
A worthy complement  to our ML8, the Durance’s cockpit is slightly stretched out for speed and balance  in xc  riding applications. Our lightest bike, the Durance is especially agile, and its aggressive geometry and 5.5 inches of rear suspension travel make this bike at home just about anywhere. You call the shots, and the Durance can handle it…and make you a better rider along the way. Built from a custom-drawn 6066-alloy tubeset, and featuring a lowered top tube, the Durance is built to perfectly handle an epic all day ride or a short xc race. We’ve also expanded the size range for the Durance. From small to XXL—riders up to 6’5” now have a Maverick to ride.

"Speaking of climbing, the Monolink rear suspension is designed for just such in-the-saddle chores...Sit for climbs and you'll experience almost no suspension motion...The Durance is a monster descender, fighting well above its sub-27-pound weight. Simply put, the Durance is so confident and plush, it's akin to rolling a bigger-travel bike-save for the fact that it's lighter-and it changes lines quickly."

- Mountain Bike, April 2009

"This is the best Maverick we have tested to date...all the great stuff is still there (a bike that pedals great, soaks up the bumps, and is rock-steady on the nastiest terrain you point it towards.) If you want a bike that does everything well...the Durance fits the bill."

- Mountain Bike Action, May 2007

What MTB category does the Durance fall into?*
That’s a great question, because the Durance isn’t bad at anything. It climbs better than a hard tail, because there’s no power loss and the while you’re climbing the suspension is fully active. And it descends better than other full suspension bikes, thanks to MonoLink and Parallel Path Technology.

Intended use*:

Marathon / Epic trail rides / Super-D

MonoLink:: The heart of all Maverick frames is the MonoLink. This patented link houses the bottom bracket and connects the front triangle to the rear, resulting in the most efficient wheel path that a bicycle can have.

Parallel Path Technology:: The patented design of the MonoLink and placement of the pivots results in a rear wheel path that follows almost symetrically the travel of the fork. The effect is a super-stable and efficient ride.

Minimal Chain Growth:: Another benefit of the MonoLink is that the bottom bracket follows the movement of the rear axle to a certain degree, resulting in minimal chain growth and minimal pedal feedback.

Integrated Shock Body:: All Maverick shocks are integrated into the rear triangle by design. Having the shock be a structural member is what makes the Maverick frame stiffer than other bikes on the market.

Custom HeadBadge:: Every single Maverick frame comes with stainless steel headbadge engraved with a unique "Serial Name" that the Maverick staff comes up with.
