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.

  • Truvativ Stylo Carbon (with DUB) crankset is as light, strong and stiff as it gets
