Our CrossWorx Cycles stage debut. The Dash275 was the first full suspension bike in our product line. Several years of development work, hard field tests, countless races + testing and a lot of sweat went into our bikes.
The pride is all the greater when we can hand our frames to our customers. You expect a
designed, manufactured and welded frame, all hand made in Thuringia (Germany).
The CW Dash is a purebred Enduro weapon – designed, built and welded in the heart of Germany.
The heart of the Dash is hidden in the linkage and is not directly recognizable.
Due to the low damper position, the Dash impresses with its excellent center of gravity it behaves well on the trail and in any riding situation.
Compared to our first prototypes, the Dash275 comes up with countless innovations. We’ve updated the Dash to a metric damper, boost dropouts, new and stiffer swingarm and off course a longer lasting bearing arrangement. But there are some more great details to find on our now production-ready prototype.
Furthermore, we officially release the Dash275 for Mullet-builds (27,5″ on the rear wheel / 29″ on the front wheel).
Due to the new design, we were able to generate space and rigidity on the rear of the Dash. The PM180 mount is elegantly hidden behind the chainstays and are safe against any beatings on the trail.
The millings in the damper area look smart and by the way they also lower the frame weight. A bearing or shock change is even easier now.
We have maintained the concept of the Dash across all stages – simple and effective just convinced us. The linkage remains at the lowest center of gravity of the wheel.
The 160 mm suspension travel are provided by a metric damper in the length 230 x 65 mm.
The Dash275 can be mounted with 27,5″ front wheel (with 170 mm travel), and as Dash Mullet-version with 29″ front wheel (with 160 mm of travel in the front). The geometry then changes slightly.

We decided to run the kinematics very sensitively at the beginning of the shock travel and becomes slightly progressive at the end of the travel. This gives you a bit more suspension travel and more grip, especially in hanging corners.
