The Lycan 272 22s has transformed into a weapon for marathons in its last stage of development. The latest stroke of genius from KTM Bike is called Straight–Line–Link (SLL). In combination with the Rocker Blade, it revolutionizes the concept of rear suspensions. This technology offers a very sensitive response to small bumps and a high absorption of big hits, while keeping high pedaling efficiency. The development team invested a lot of time to shape the rocker blade extremely rigid to torsion. To conclusively accomplish the concept of the Straight–Line–Link Technology (SLL), we deliberately set no bearing point at the dropout, which maximizes stiffness. Through this suspension-system the Fully achieves an astonishing amount of propulsion in the 125 mm class, which was originally reserved for Racefullies. The compact and rigid front triangle with its sloping geometry ensures a lower stand-over height. An improved bike handling was realized through a more flat head tube angle, steeper seat tube angle and longer top tube combined with shorter stem. To add the final touch to this harmonious concept, the ball bearings are bigger dimensions which results in better strength and durability.

Legit Enduro Trail Shredding Machine

I have owned Specialized Big Hits when I raced downhill, as well as some Jamis all mountain bikes, Trek Remedies & to be honest, I went out and got a KOM on Strava my first ride on this KTM Lycan LT. It's the best bike I've ever owned, literally, and didn't even have it set up to my race ready liking just yet. This bike climbs incredibly, the suspension works so well with the KTM frame design which made me feel confident right away with jumps and fast berms. Way happy with the performance level of this bike & the build kit suits my riding style really well straight out of the box. No complaints whatsoever.
ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!

Absolutely love it. My local trails are very rocky and "rooty", with steep technical climbs. Lots of work for the reward. I've been putting about 30-40 miles on a week (I'm a 2x weekly rider.. family, kids, wife, work, etc). I've had zero issues or flaws. The biggest flaw is that my skill is subpar to the bikes ability.
It climbs and descends really well. I literally have zero complaints.
I would certainly recommend and am thoroughly pleased with the purchase.
