Time for some trail magic. This rowdy ride is all about amping up your agility. Built to pop and pivot in tight sections, this technical bike is the right tool to clean your corners. A nice pair of Maxxis knobbies keep you glued to the ground, hero dirt or not. And with a smaller wheel size, your manoeuvrability and aim is wickedly better, so you can weave through technical terrain with precision. Positively plush shocks make technical descents a bit more flowy, taming the turbulence in the trail. And on this rare occasion, it's okay to stare, the SRAM Eagle and Truvativ Stylo drivetrain excites cycologists and riders alike.
