The modular design of the Meltdown and Outburst Series offer many unique advantages. By changing the bolt-on dropouts, you can use either 142 x 12 OR 148 x 12 Boost Wheels (148 x 12 is standard).
By changing the dropouts, rocker arms, shocks and shock mount, either Meltdown or Outburst frame can be configured into one of 5 different models. WIth the right parts mix and front fork, you can turn a standard Meltdown (27.5 x 160 mm travel/160 fork) into:
Meltdown RACE: Slacker geo, 180mm fork, 160 mm rr, 27.5 fr & rr
Outburst: 140 mm fork, 125 mm rr, 29” fr and rr
Outburst RACE: 150 mm fork, slacker geo, 125 mm rear, 29" fr & rr
Outburst XC: Steeper geo, 125 mm fork, 125 mm rr, 29” fr and rr
Downburst: 150 mm x 29 front, 165 mm x 27.5 rear
The Outburst can be similarly configured into all models with a parts swap.
