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.

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.
