Posted by Miles Arbour

The Hayduke is Esker Cycles’ versatile and longstanding Chromoly steel mountain bike. It has clearance for both 27.5 x 3.0″ and 29 x 2.3″ tires, swing-arm swappable dropouts that allow for multiple drivetrain setups, and is Esker’s vision of the perfect hardtail. Until now, the Hayduke has always been equipped with a 120mm 29” fork built with 27.5”+ wheels and tires to allow riders swap between the 27.5”+ and 29” wheel sizes. Although the same versatility will exists, this new crop of Haydukes will be built up with a 27.5″ 140mm travel fork to focus on the 27.5″ platform—making way for a soon-to-be-announced 29″ Esker model. The Hayduke is now offered in three different builds and as a frameset, which are all outlined below.
