Are you ready for some serious riding?

Bicycling Magazine selected the Fantom Elite DS as one of the top three Editors Choice (in category) ('04)
Bicycling Magazine says
the Fantom Team carves the trails..." (October 2003) and this Fantom Elite DS has the same handling set at 3" of travel! This 2009 Fantom Elite DS will eat trails for lunch when you set it at the max 5" travel and dial up the Uturn Recon fork to full on 130mm.

These Fantom Elite DS's have the same design frame as the Superlight Fantom Team 23.5 lb bike but beefed up for up to 5" of travel!
The Fantom Elite DS weighs about 30-32 lbs, the same as any other comparably equipped $3,000 full suspension bikes.

This FS trail bike will do just about anything for Thousands less than any other bike.

Motobecane USA has dialed in a race-proven geometry into another phenomenal ride. Very responsive and yet stable. Just like the award winning FLY Team hardtail, singletrack and switchbacks are all handled with ease. This is an even better play bike for the trails 'cause this bike has adjustable travel - you can go 3" or 4" or up to 5".

Customers have told us they have compared the Fantom Elite DS to $2,00-3,000+ bikes from Kona, Ellsworth, Trek and Specialized and those do NOT have all the features even at twice the price.
