We have sold thousands of Motobecane Full Suspension mountain bikes. A high level of engineering and attention to detail is seen on all Motobecane mountain bikes. Happy customers send friends and family to buy these incredibly capable mountain bikes all the time.
This is the much anticipated Full Suspension bike with Boost Axles HAL 5.5 (Highly Active Linkage) by Motobecane USA. Building upon over a decade of FS design, the HAL 5.5 29/27.5+ Full Suspension is designed for up to 5.1 inches of terrain taming rear travel and up to more up front. The HAL Linkage uses a chainstay mounted pivot for even more supple suspension tracking and incredible control even while applying the brakes. Chainstays are optimized on the HAL models for incredible Billy Goat climbing and traction.
Real Customer Videos / Reviews (HAL Boost): HP-
"I'm impressed with the bike. I've been riding mtb since 1981 and was a pro rider for years in the 90's. The bike handles as well, if not better than some of the $6k bikes I've owned. I've done many double black and jump trails and have hit jumps with over 8ft of air. The bike just rips! It's easy to manual, and is twitchy and fun to ride. I have 6 bikes at the moment and one ebike, a bulls estream evo am 4. But I'm usually riding my Hal boost. One of the most fun bikes I've ever owned."
On Strava I’m posting some great times. 2nd all time on a 9 min rip.
rode this bike for about a year now. Still liking it and still no issues mechanically.
RW- "I have the hal6 team edition... love it"
"The (Hal Boost) bike is excellent, I really like it. I came off a Yeti ASR and found the (HAL Boost) ride to be superior to that high dollar bike."
Real Customer Reviews of Motobecane HAL full Suspension Mountain Bikes AFT / MTBR.com "Just put 11 miles on the new bike! This thing is amazing!! Can't get enough of these shocks, that and the rear derailleur shifts so damn quick. Love it!"
Daniel E. MTBR.com "Wow this bike is incredible…this is the best and probably most expensive bike I've ever ridden, but I couldn't have even imagined a bike feeling this great on a trail. Not sure on the weight, but it feels very light and quick (I'm tubeless, which may help) while still being stiff. The travel is a lot, but I was able to use what looked like 80-90% on my ride today while still feeling efficient on the flats and climbs, noting that I was playing around with the rear lockout…Everything about this bike is great, looks amazing, hell even the saddle is very comfortable.
JR Glenni MTBR.com "…my Hal6 Expert climbs great. Down shifting is firm and quick even when shifting late or downshifting more mid climb, and I didn't really notice pedal bob on the climbs. The front did tend to lift up on me more than I was used to, but I'm coming from a hard tail 29'er that was more of an XC design with a longer wheelbase, so that's not surprising. I was still able to climb pretty quickly with it, and I don't think the light(er) front end will be an issue as I get more used to it."
Jeff R MTBR.com "I am also coming from a hardtail 29er, but feel that my hal6 climbs just as good if not better on technical climbs. I'm not fighting for my back wheel to maintain traction and it soaks up the roots, rocks, and bumps… On Saturday, broke my strava record for a technical climb I do regularly on my hal6 without even trying…All in all, I'm very impressed with the overall performance of the bike…"
Compared to Specialized Stumpjumper Elite FSR
P / MTBR.com "...short little review after ~5 miles of techy singletrack with around 1,000ft of climb.
First off, I'm coming from a 2013 Stumpjumper Elite FSR 29er and have the Hal6 PRO for comparison.
Obviously, the suspension on the moto is a HUGE upgrade. My first time riding a Pike and I must say, I'm sold. I was actually pedaling thru a lot of the rougher sections instead of trying to pick a perfect line. Also found it much easier to throw the bike around and clear a lot of the super tech stuff. Definitely a noticeable difference in geometry as well. I felt like I was in a much better position when I was pointed downhill. One of my biggest gripes with the Stumpy was pedal clearance. You basically can't pedal thru a turn on the Stumpy without striking a pedal. Didn't have a single strike on the Moto today…All in all, couldn't be happier with how everything performed on my first ride. ...feels fantastic on the downhill/tech sections.
Compared to Specialized Stumpjumper FSR
CC H. MTBR.com "I did another really technical climb on my hal 6 pro...I made it way further than I ever have on any other bike. Its narrow, rocky, rooted, and steep and even I was amazed at what I made it through. Part of the advantage of this bike is the high pedal clearance. I could also feel the back just sticking down, never spun out once even when leaning forward. I attribute that to the suspension, and the nice tires. The feeling of the bike under me is light and stiff. I assume the hal5 will climb better than the hal 6 because of a steeper head angle, and less travel front and rear. I will be doing a direct comparison with my friends MY2021 stumpjumper FSR comp. the frame angles and measurements are almost identical on paper except for the seat tube on the Hal being steeper by 1.5 degrees…"
The (Hal Boost) bike is excellent, I really like it! Why Do I love My HAL Boost?
What Do The HAL 5.5 29er/27+ Bikes Compare to? Price and Features Your Motobecane HAL 5.5 series Full Suspension bikes have:
150mm fork travel, up to 5.1" rear travel, weigh approx 31 to 32.9lbs when converted tubeless (On Sale $1299).
The Pivot Cycles have:
135mm rear travel (Price $5,000 to $6,400+) weigh about the same when converted tubeless. :) For the price difference, you can buy parts for your HAL 5.5 and make it even lighter and STILL have $$$ left over to go on a sweet MTB vacation. :)
What Are the Widest Tires One Can Use on the HAL 5.5 Full Suspension Bikes? The HAL 5.5 frames have up to 5.1" rear Travel and a rear tire clearance up to 87mm. The Rockshox BOOST Forks have 81mm clearance on the front. Note, always allow enough room between the tires, frame, parts and fork so your tires don't rub. (ie- you cannot run a 87mm tire in the rear nor 81mm in the front)
MTBR.com editor rides a 6by6 and
raves: "...Frame angles are dialed...Held up in big descents...Great value..." Rating: 4 Flamin' Chili Peppers-out-of-5
"...we’re happy to report that the bike checked out just fine…suspension is active vertically and stiff laterally…responsive…held up in the big descents without complaint….angles were just right at 67.5 and 73.5 respectively. For all-around trail riding, it definitely did the job. And at that price you’ll likely have money left over for upgrades.
Frame is stout and laterally stiff, Frame angles are dialed, wheels are strong…attractive lines on it with a top tube bend for improved clearance. Tubes are oversized and welds are beefy.
Component choices are smart…great value bike on the new 29er wheel size….best deals and components to deliver a solid package…models shipping now have an updated rear shock called the Monarch R rear shock with Fast Black 7075 shaft and Rapid Recovery rebound damping…this rear shock has excellent, supple performance and has very good mid-stroke damping support.
Bottom line it’s an attractive and affordable package that leaves plenty of budget for down-the-road upgrades.
…exciting sibling model announced…Team Version with RockShox Pike forks, and XTR / XT 1x11 Speed, Guide Brakes…is ridiculous value and it will be an awesome performer.
Magazine says the Fantom Team carves the trails and has
"components normally found on bikes costing thousands more..."
Rag Magazine editor rides the Fantom Team in several 24 HOUR Races and
addition to The Wilderness 101, I completed the Wild 100
(kilometers) and a 96 mile Duo Class 24-hour race on the Fantom Team.
The biggest compliment I can give the bike is to say that I didn't have
to think much about it during those events. ...The Fantom Team's
handling is well mannered and intuitive. Carving through tight
singletrack is a breeze...the bike loves to go downhill fast. During
the aforementioned 24-hour race, there is a long, fast downhill where I
routinely blew by hardtail racers like they were standing still. When
my quarry wasn't eager to yield the A line, I went for the gusto and
passed on the B line, relying on the Fantom Team's suspension to gobble
up the rocks and ruts..."READ THE WHOLE REVIEW
