The mid-level Tracer build features upgraded components with the same brilliant Foundation frame. Perfectly suited for shred sessions and formal Enduro outings, its slack geometry and huge travel lets you pick a line and hammer it.

To shave grams, Shimano's XT M8000 brakeset with SRAM GX 12-speed drivetrain positions the Tracer Expert in the category of glorious.
