As good as life gets on a 27.5 bike. Engineered for agility, this aggressive ride features a stiff carbon crankset to propel you up and over, minus the hindrance of any extra mass. Teamed up with a SRAM Eagle back end, the result is a drool-worthy ride that's ready to punch it out of terrain traps. Wickedly manoeuvrable, you can be the master your own escape through tree gates and twisty tracks. A full carbon frame keeps the ride light and lively, and silky smooth shocks turn technical descents into sweet surprises. Topped off with a carbon wheelset, this sublimely flickable bike is race-ready for reigning over your trail kingdom.
