Show Description

A solid entry-level hardtail for intermediate to challening cross-country rides. With a lightweight aluminum frame and 27.5in. wheels, the Lanao 4 provides feels playful, agile and stable. The dropped top tube decreases standover height for a comfortable ride without affecting the frame's geometry or rigidity. Adjustable rebound on the fork offer a nuanced ride, and the lock-out lets you hammer and climb nimbly. Shimano hydraulic discs provide powerful braking and nuanced modulation in the wet and dry, and are easy to bleed if/when the time comes. A mixed groupset of Alivio, Acera and XT offers reliable, smooth shifting, while the large sized 11-34t cassette mountain-goats up gnarly climbs. Whether you're looking to hit the bike path or local trails, the Lanao 4 is the ticket for technical cross-country riding or around-town cruising.

  • 9-speed Alivio SL shifters are fast-shifting and reliable.
