Airborne Hobgoblin FS 29″er: On Test- by Guitar Ted

Airborne, the direct to consumer company that produced the Goblin 29″er hard tail we looked at here, has now got themselves a dual suspension rig dubbed the “Hobgoblin”. We were sent the complete SRAM X-7 equipped rig. Airborne will also offer an X-0 spec’ed model, and offer a frame set now for those looking to transfer over parts from another bike or who may be a bit more picky about what they ride.

Airborne, Hobgoblin

Airborne's new 2013 Hobgoblin FS X-7 spec'ed model.

Airborne was kind enough to send this sample of the Hobgoblin over to us for test and review just before Winter set in, and they were okay with us waiting on good weather. Now that it is here, we are going to start rolling out this bike for testing within the next couple of weeks, once the trails have firmed up. Stay tuned for an Out Of The Box posting and First Impressions coming soon.

Note: Airborne sent over the Hobgoblin for test and review at no charge to Twenty Nine Inches. We are not being paid, nor bribed for this review and we will strive to give our honest thoughts and opinions throughout.
