See available mountain bikes


Your ticket to shred. 160mm of front travel, slack geometry and a carbon fibre frame make it a certified enduro weapon. Point the Tracer downhill 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 RockShox components handle all of your suspension needs. The 1x12 SRAM Eagle NX leverages a mega 11-50t cassette and an NX derailleur and shifter for consistent, rapid-fire performance. Get rowdy and go hard, because the Shimano brakes have you covered with 180mm rotors in the front and rear.
