• Number One of 2020 - Eric's new 2020 Party Stripper...'Steve'

February 11, 2020

Here's the story...One year ago we had the idea to create the XFS PS - Party Stripper. A short travel specific suspension version of the renowned XFS, with just 120mm travel and geo designed exclusively for pure unadulterated fun. 
That was the Party Stripper concept. In 2019 we made just 6 frames. In 2020 we'll do the same and here's the first one. Eric's XFS PS in size large.

Let's start with Eric's thoughts on his new ride after hopping on the saddle:

The Party Stripper was the result of a love for my vendetta and a slight size issue with our xfs. After speaking with the guys at kingdom and a few very long weeks a box arrived and "Steve" was born.

Straight off the batt as expected the quality and attention to detail was flawless. Nick @OrangePeel built her up using parts from the XFS build lowering forks to 130mm to match the PS geometry and before long it was time.

Within first few minutes was clear made the right choice the bike inspires confidence rides very much like a DJ on steroids. The familiar

Vendetta playfulness and pop mixing beautifully with the XFS control and stability. Our local trails are flowy with berms rollers and kickers and the stripper just loves to jump and flick round corners never feeling like its going to let go. When you dig in your heels it happily leaps forward and remains stable whilst remaining very light and controlled.

In summary if you want an enduro rig that rides like a Dj and you want to ride like a hooligan the stripper is by a mile the best frame i have ever ridden.

Looking forward to clocking up the miles and seeing just how much fun you can have on 2 wheels.
