Show Description

Next level trail performance for speed focused XC riders. This bike is engineered to crush technical climbs, mixed terrain and gnarly descents. JS Tuned suspension delivers a bob-free climbing experience while plushing out the ride when the trail gets rowdy. With great rolling momentum in the 29er wheels, this bike rolls fast and feels stable. You get 120mm of travel in the front and rear, so you can expect high pedalling efficiency while having enough travel to handle rough patches with extra confidence. From Fox's top-of-the-line Factory fork and shocks, to a dropper post that uses carbon fibre to drop even more weight, the Sniper Trail Pro is packed with magic to last you years of riding.

  • Full carbon frame and top link,with aluminum lower link, provides a stiff and compliant ride.
  • JS Tuned rear linkage results in efficient climbing with high performance on descent.
  • Slack head tube angle coupled with 44mm offset combines the benefits of a big-travel bike with the responsiveness of a short-travel trail ripper.
  • Long wheelbase and low BB height improves stability when riding fast on rough terrain.
  • Internal routing prevents cable rattle and keeps them protected.
  • FOX Factory 34 fork uses the incredibly hard Kashima coating and provides 120mm of travel.
  • FOX Factory DPS Kashima rear shock has 120mm of travel and a 3-position lever for open, medium and firm settings.
  • Kindshock Carbon LEV Ci dropper seatpost is lightweight with 125mm (S) 150mm (M/L) or 175mm (XL) of travel.
  • Truvativ Stylo carbon fibre crank with 34T ring is light and stiff.
  • SRAM Eagle GX shifter and X01 derailleur for a 1x12 drivetrain.
  • Shimano XT hydraulic disc brakes provide responsive braking with a 180mm rotor in the front and 160mm in the rear.
  • Fabric Line Wide Elite saddle with Cr-Mo rails is ultra comfy.
  • 760mm wide Intense carbon handlebars provide a comfortable riding position.
  • 148x12mm spacing in the rear and 110x15mm in the front boosts stiffness.
  • Maxxis Forekaster tires in 2.35in. width are designed for aggressive XC trails.
