Cotic BFe press release

The new BFe applies our latest geometry developments, bringing in revised angles and better bike fit. The steeper seat angle puts you in a more effective, central place on the bike; making climbing even easier. We’ve slackened the head angle by a degree to match this, giving you more confidence than ever on those critical steep trails and fast corners. Optimised around a 140mm fork but can be ridden raced & rallied with anything between 120mm and 160mm. Paired with a 35m stem and low standover from the dropped top tube; this bike handles sharply, and loves to get airborne. Due to popular demand, we’ve also added an XL size for the first time in the BFe’s life.

We took a pair of the new bikes to Leeds Urban Bike Park last week for skids and wheelies with Dave Camus & Ben Tyas providing the skills. All our bikes are fun but this is right up there at the top for sure.

Wheel standards are finally calming down and most people are calling for Boost rear spacing to future-proof their purchase. Combined with our Super Clearance stays for the latest generation of 2.6″ tyres and you are set for years of fun. From razzing round the BMX track, racing enduros and tearing up trail centres, there’s nothing the BFe can’t do. Crabapple hits? Done. Podium top steps? Also done.

The BFe is our trail bashing, downhill thrashing, park smashing, enduro winning, do-it-all fun machine.

With strong new colours and some subtle geometry tweaks, the latest edition of our hardcore classic pushes the boundaries of the aggressive hardtail even further; longer, slacker, more confident and capable than ever.

Right from its introduction in 2005, the BFe has always been the tearaway of the Cotic family. The Soul’s stockier, rowdier younger brother. You know the one – loads of fun, but a bit on the wild side? That’s the BFe.

This is our rowdiest hardtail, it will take everything you can throw at it, from BMX track laps to the steepest downhill lines. We have even had one sending Crabapple Hits at Whistler! Our signature Longshot geometry gives you combination of long reach and slack head angle, for all the stability and confidence you need. The steep seat angle keeps you in the centre of the bike for efficient climbing, so you can climb up the fun way for another flat out descent. At the heart of the BFe is a custom Reynolds 853 downtube, brings life and pop to the ride, and our very own FM heat treated cromoly tubeset rounds out the strongest hardtail we make. This bike is a hooligan; enduro winning speed, dual slalom sharp handling and hard hitting capabilities.
