The bike, the myth, the legend..... The Status.
It is great on all fronts in it's standard form, except for its bang average suspension.... so in true Brink style we've turned it up to 11 and made it all spangly with Ohlins bouncy bits.
This the best performing bike for under £4k ....that's not a question, it's a statement of pure unadulterated fact.

The Status 160 may be an all-new bike, but it’s really an all-new way of thinking about how to have the most fun possible on two wheels—even if that means they’re different sizes.
A 29-inch wheel offers up maximum cornering traction and roll-over capability in front while a 27.5 inch wheel out back brings with it shorter chainstays—and the party. Paired together with our playful Mixed Wheel-Size Trail Geometry the result is capital-F fun. Park-stomping, trail-slashing, getting-jibby-with-it fun.
We rounded out the Status 160’s fun-first frame with everything you need to keep the party going—big brakes, an X-Fusion Manic dropper post and all brought together by the active, planted feel of our FSR suspension platform.
Focused on fun and featuring our Mixed-Wheel Trail Geometry, the Status frameset is a fewer frills, all thrills FSR delivery system crafted from our hard-charging—and hard-wearing—M5 alloy and is designed not only to take a hit, but keep asking for more.
Quality suspension unlocks some serious free speed, so to slow it all down, we tasked SRAM’s proven Code R brakes with stopping duties. Forged four-piston callipers offer serious stopping power, while 200mm rotors on both ends of the bike promise plenty of fade-free bite when it matters.
