A firecracker for the trail. This enduro rig loves a trail roller coaster as much as you do. Unique 279 geometry combines a 29er wheel on the front, keeping you ready to launch over bumps or jumps, and a 27.5 rear wheel for maneuverability and reliable traction. It's light enough to almost make climbing fun. And on the descent, it unleashes its agressive side so you can drive down confidently. From hairpins to jaw clenching jumps, this bike delivers the goods across technical terrain.
