Your ticket to shred. 160mm of front travel, slack geometry and a carbon fibre frame make this is a certified enduro weapon. Point the Tracer down and expect it to handle everything from big hits to mind-bending rock gardens. The JS Tuned suspension soaks up drops and chuddery sections of trail with powerful, burly elegance. The Foundation model kicks off the Tracer build series with rock solid, no-nonsense parts. Trail ready Rock Shox handle all of your suspension needs front and rear. The 1x11 SRAM gearing leverages a mega 11-42t cassette and a satisfying NX shifter for consistent, rapid fire performance. Get rowdy, go hard, because Shimano brakes with 180mm rotors have you covered.
