The Cagua 6540 opens the door to enduro. It features the 27.5 (650 B) wheel size that's becoming a fast favourite for all mountain riders. It's got the smooth rolling feel of a 29'er with the quick handling and agility of a smaller wheel size. A robust aluminum frame is engineered specifically for 27.5 wheels. And a 12mm rear axle and 15mm front axle ensure the wheels track perfectly, so the bike goes exactly where you point it. Shimano SLX brakes handle the velocity control, and for serious stopping power, a combination 203mm rotor up front and a 180mm in the rear isn't an aftermarket upgrade but a stock setup on the Cagua 6540. Fun riding up, down, or straight on through. The 2014 6540 gets a new stem and seatpost, headset, fork, rims, shifters, and rear deraileur and cassette, everything else remains.
- Reinforced, lightweight aluminum frame with sophisticated details like hydroformed tubing and specific chainstay length.
- Tapered head tube is wider at the bottom for better force transfer from the fork to the frame. The increased stiffness offers direct, reactive steering.
- Rear shock has a responsive Climb/Trail/Descend (CTD) 3-position adjustment lever for fast adjustment to changing terrain.
- Continuous cable housing so dirt and grit can't get in to affect shifting performance.
- Shimano Pressfit BB system. Designed to increase stiffness and support and to reduce needed maintenance.
- Shimano SLX and XT components ensure fast, crisp shifting.
- This model is not equipped with pedals.
- Bikes are covered by MEC's Rocksolid Guarantee and Bike Service Agreement. You can bring your bike to any MEC Bike Shop for free adjustments and minor maintenance for a year after purchase.
