Show Description

Own the trail with the ultimate 29er. This top-tier trail champion boasts a carbon wheelset, to amplify your ride for the most nimble ride of your life. Lighter and stiffer, it's as hungry for the hills as you are. At its heart, a carbon crankset gives you a step up in stiffness and a step down in weight, so your climbs are unburdened by any extra grams. Paired with a drool-worthy SRAM Eagle groupset, your drive has never been so smooth and punchy. Velvety shocks make descents a delight. Race-ready and totally flickable, this indulgent bike is primed to reach high and reign down in trail glory.

  • Full carbon frame scales down the weight while keeping your ride feel nimble and agile.
  • Agressive enduro/trail geometry gives a 65.9 degree headtube angle.
  • Reach: Small (420 mm); Medium (450 mm); and Large (475 mm).
  • Internal cable routing keeps shifter, seatpost and brake cables tidy.
  • Fox Factory 34 fork absorbs shock with 150mm of travel.
  • Fox Factory DPX2 (3-pos) handles well on small or big bumps.
  • Truvativ Stylo Carbon (with DUB) crankset is as light, strong and stiff as it gets.
  • Shimano XT (piston) hydraulic disc brakes provide powerful all-conditions braking.
  • SRAM GX Eagle shifters give rapid response gearing.
  • SRAM X01 Eagle rear derailleur provides quick gear changes.
  • SRAM GX Eagle chain for durable drive power.
  • Fox Factory Transfer dropper seat post.
  • Front tire: Maxxis High Roller II 29 x 2.5.
  • Rear tire: Maxxis Agressor 29 x 2.3.
