Show Description

Stable and fast, this nicely specced 29er suits beginner and intermediate riders tackling tricky trails. With bigger wheels, the Kato 4 29 can roll over obstacles more efficiently than a bike with 26 or 27.5-inch wheels, and it offers a more stable-feeling ride (great for newer riders). The setup also make this Kato an effective and efficient climber, so you can preserve your legs and energy on cross-country rides. It features a gorgeous selection of components: fast-acting Shimano® Altus shifters for ripping trails or cruising city streets, SR Suntour fork with 100mm of travel to handle big hits and smooth out chuddery sections, and Shimano hydraulic brakes for solid stopping power. Totally reliable, fun and cleverly equipped, this is an excellent setup for long and involved days of cross-country riding.
