See available mountain bikes


Your ticket to shred. 160mm of front travel, slack geometry and a carbon fibre frame make it a certified enduro weapon. Point the Tracer downhill and expect it to handle everything from big hits to mind-bending rock gardens. The JS-Tuned suspension soaks up drops and chuddery sections of trail with powerful, burly elegance. The Elite model is the pinnacle of the Tracer build series with hyperlight, no-nonsense parts. Trail-ready FOX components handle all of your suspension needs. A carbon wheelset rolls in the absence of gravity. The 1x12 SRAM Eagle X01 with carbon crankset leverages a mega 10-50t cassette and an X01 derailleur and shifter for consistent, rapid-fire performance. Get rowdy and go hard, because the Shimano brakes have you covered with 180mm rotors in the front and rear.
