The newly named “Grasshopper with Wings.”
The naming of ‘Locust’ came from the icon with prehistoric wings that swarms and fills our grasslands, turning them into wastelands.
All of the singletrack paths that we love are a delicate part of nature, and if you tread on them without discretion, they will quickly turn to nothing but wasteland. It’s certainly fun to ride on rough terrain, but what if all of nature becomes a wasteland? It won’t be so fun anymore.
There are steep mountains, forests with towering trees, and gullies with flowing streams. Sometimes there are craggy wastelands, and sometimes there are deserts covered in sand as far as the eye can see. Off-road riding evokes a ton of imagery and exposes us to so many interesting environments.
We rebranded the Doppo MTB as ‘Locust’ to commit to our self-restraint, so as not to destroy such delicate environments, but also to symbolize the insect’s fearlessness for thriving in unexplored areas.
