This new prototype REEB SST steel full-suspension trail bike is set for an official debut this coming weekend at the Sedona MTB Fest. But even as we’re traveling west for an in-person look, we’ve got a few first sneak peek looks at the all-new lightweight steel 120mm travel 29er trail bike…

Just a month ago Reeb reshaped their aluminum Sqweeb v4 steel full-suspension 29er with shorter 130mm trail, longer 150mm all-mountain & even longer 163mm Mullet enduro version.  And now the Sqweeb is about to get a slighter shorter-travel little steel trail brother too.

Tech details

This prototype SST is a scaled-back 120mm travel version with lighter tubing throughout to bridge the gap between the big Sqweeb and trail hardtails.

The result is a visually & physically lighter iteration of the all-mountain bike featuring slimmer, straight steel tubing welded together with hollow 3D-printed SLM (Selective Laser Melting) stainless steel chainstay yoke, seatstay clevis & dropouts. The simplified single-pivot suspension design mimics the 4-bar Horst-link Sqweeb with flattened flexing chainstays and a shorter CNC-machined alloy rocker link-driven shock, all rotating on sealed Enduro bearings.

Reeb promises small bump sensitivity in the new design, a supportive ramp through the bike’s travel, and a careful balance of handling stiffness & classic steel compliance. Built to be a responsive all-day trail bike, Reeb describes it as a singletrack shredder that punches above its travel class with “enough suspension to hit the big lines… like a much bigger bike.”

Full details on the lightweight steel Reeb SST prototype trail bike will be revealed this week, and we’ll make sure to get a detailed up-close look at it in Sedona.

Pretty looking bike! But steel and light weight never seem to go together.
