If Mad Max rode a bike, it would be the Honzo ESD. It’s part Honzo, part monster, and with geometry that inspired the Process X, it’s made for those who want to punish the trails. A steel frame holds a Marzocchi Bomber Z1 fork with 150mm of travel. It’s got strong 4-piston brakes, grippy Maxxis rubber, and a headtube badge that will scare your children at night. This is the Warrior of the Wasteland.
“The Honzo ESD is one of the current breeds of hardcore hardtails proving that you don’t need rear suspension to tackle the gnarliest lines. That’s down largely to the excellent geometry and capable fork, combining to give buckets of control, composure, stability, and confidence.”
