New Bike Day: KHS 6500 Trail Bike

KHS 6500 Trail Bike


By KHS Bicycles

KHS has revamped the 6500 trail bike for 2020. Upgrading the fork to 150mm and 29 wheels. A noticeable change from last year’s 650b plus. The new 6500 handles today’s technical trails with ease. A well-defined trail bike that is solid and stable over off-road terrain while also riding steep and technical climbs with confidence. This year’s geometry with component specs are designed for the well perfected balanced trail bike for riders who prefer longer travel but don’t want to resort to an enduro bike. The versatility that has made our 6500 trail bike popular.

Designed to handle everything from XC trails to gnarly downhills.


Offering a suspension platform that’s combined with an updated geometry that makes this trail bike the best of both worlds for climbing and descending on gnarly singletracks.

This year’s highlights:

The KHS 6500 suspension provides a solid pedal platform. Noticeable and smooth compliance from small to big hits while riding on the trail. Whether you are climbing or flying down a descent, the 6500 will outperform your expectations in a trail bike.
