Description

A premium 29er, and in fact, one of the finest 29ers available anywhere in the world. Detailed and engineered for XC excellence, the Primer's hyperlight carbon frame and well-chosen Expert Build components deliver a ride that's competent, flickable and fully race-ready. At its heart lies the innovative i-BOX Pivot system for climbing efficiency and trail management. The Rockshox Revelation RC suspension combined with the 29er wheels offers a smoother ride than you'd get on a smaller-wheeled bike. For the drivetrain, you get nothing but a cutting-edge SRAM 1x12 groupset to move smoothly from long, steep climbs to fast and flowy descents. A Fox transfer seatpost drops out of the way when things get rowdy and pops back up when you need to start churning.

  • Monocoque unidirectional carbon frame with alloy top link is light, strong and stunning
  • i-BOX Pivot System allows for compact seatstays and a shortened wheelbase for a remarkably nimble and efficient ride
