CARBONJACK 29” Enduro frameset

Design & Innovation Award

WINNER 2021 CATEGORY MTB

“In many ways, the Antidote Carbonjack 29” is an exceptional bike. The most unique aspect of the carbon frame, which is made by hand in Poland, is the distinct visible carbon finish. But the small brand is also setting benchmarks with the design of the bike, combining a futuristic look with a high level of functionality. Thanks to the low-slung top tube, the bike offers a huge amount of freedom of movement. The balanced geometry is perfectly tuned for high-speed riding. Paired with the first-class Öhlins suspension and Antidote’s patented suspension, it results in a very capable enduro bike. The bike communicates precise feedback from the ground without overwhelming the rider. The Antidote Carbonjack 29” isn’t just a beauty, it’s also incredibly fast and a worthy award winner!”

    GOLDEN RATIO GEOMETRY  

    The philosophy of the designing the new Carbonjack was led by the principal of lowering the centre of gravity not only of the frame but also the entire rider. Combining the unique geometry with an exceptional suspension layout let us lower the centre of gravity to the maximum, reaching the Holy Grail of all kinds of racing vehicles.

    2. The 450 mm chainstay length mixed with a slightly shortened front center allows to place the centre of gravity of the rider closer in the middle of the wheelbase, ensuring never seen before confidence in handling the downhills and stability on the uphills

    4. Carbonjack 29 has one of the lowest BB heights in its class. It gives a feeling of being in the bike, rather than on it.

    3. A relatively slack seat tube angle is a nod towards racing XC machines with their legendary uphill abilities. Not only does it force a proper riding position, but also it lowers the rider’s centre of gravity, still providing the right distance between the top of saddle and the bottom bracket. That’s why the rider doesn’t have to lean on the handlebar while riding uphill. What’s more the top tube length is quite longer so it result in more comfortable ride.

    1. 65 head tube angle ensures great agility at low speeds, while combined with short fork offset also lets keep a long trail figure which delivers additional stability at higher speeds. This solution allows for shortening of the front center too.

    At Antidote, we believe that in order to have fun on the bike, it’s better to understand the entire geometry and its complexities, instead of just making the frame longer and slacker to no end. We aim to place the raider in the best position and the result is Golden Ratio Geometry which main assumption is to lower the Center of Gravity as much as possible.

    Looking at the relatively large head angle, long chainstay and slack seat tube angle, you might come away with the impression that the Carbon Jack goes against the current geometry trends. And that’s exactly what it does – Antidote goes beyond the geometry trends, using the Golden Ratio to build the real bikes of tomorrow.

    GEOMETRY

    “Golden Ratio Geometry” is the best overall geometry that we have ever designed. Why? Because the proportions between the front and rear triangles are most effective for the type of riding the Carbonjack is designed for. Our special balance distribution between the „Front Center” to „Chainstay” means better rider mass distribution, it doesn’t matter whether you are climbing or descending. The new Carbonjack geometry gives the rider confidence to progress.

    FDS SUSPENSION

    • Pedalling efficiency with no feedback
    • Superb small bump sensitivity
    • Excelent traction during technical climbs
    • Progression giving place to abuse
      even on downhill tracks
    • Inline shock compression

    UNIQUE SHOCK MOUNT

    • Floating shock design
    • Easy acces to settings

    LOW CENTER OF GRAVITY

    • Better cornering
    • More control on ground and in the air

    DAMPER ASSEMBLY

    Through 90 degrees damper rotation, we have
    obtained seamless, easy access to adjustment.

    Equipped with 150 mm travel, slack geometry and short rear carbonjack gives the rider perfect balance while blasting down the trails. An upright seat tube angle and pedal efficient suspension makes climbing easy, giving you even more energy for fun parts!

    Our floating damping system is patented. No shock mounts in the front triangle or swingarm means better stress distribution. A simple and effective suspension design with unique shock access combined with lightweight and aggressive geometry will improve your riding skills dramatically, before you realize it!

    REVIEWS & TESTS

    The Antidote Carbonjack 29 is a unique bike both because of its eclectic look and particular handling. While it proved to have an authentic character, this only comes to life on fast descents. The quality of workmanship and the details on the handmade carbon frame testify to the painstaking attention to detail and perfectionism of the small brand. If you’re looking for a unique and capable bike, the Carbonjack is a great option. The first scratch on the beautiful frame will hurt a lot though!

    Mit dem Antidote Carbonjack 29 zeigt die polnische Manufaktur, dass äußerst hochwertige Carbon-Verarbeitung auch im kleinen Maßstab und in Europa gut funktioniert. Das Rad ist exzellent verarbeitet und vor allem optisch ein Leckerbissen für alle Kohlefaser-Fans. Im Einsatz giert es trotz moderaten 150 mm Federweg am Heck vor allem nach schnellen Strecken und überzeugt hier mit einer hohen Laufruhe sowie einem exzellenten Fahrwerk.

    La première impression à son guidon est celle d’un mini-vélo de descente et elle est vite confortée lorsqu’on enchaîne les premières sections à bonne allure, mais des sorties plus tranquilles ont également montré que le Carbonjack savait se faire doux et “léger”. C’est un très bon vélo polyvalent pour celles et ceux qui s’amusent plus dans les descentes que dans les montées et, s’il sera toujours plus à l’aise sur les gros chocs et à bonne vitesse, il ne se montrera jamais encombrant dans les autres situations.

    Super-fast on the descents, with a smooth ride feel that still manages to keep you connected with the trail. Beautifully sculpted frame and superb components. Pedals well too.

    Mountain Bike Rider

    It's a fantastic mountain bike. One that can go everywhere, do anything and put the smile on the face of anyone looking for a bike slightly outside of the mainstream and one with craftsmanship at its core. (…) The Carbonjack is a wonderful, made in Europe, mountain bike with a high level of personalisation available from Antidote. It's going to turn heads when you pull it out of the van and be a hoot to ride on all the trails that a modern mountain bike will ever see.
