Show Description

Get extra experimental on technical trail cuz it's slash and dash time. This trail bike's staggered 279 geometry combines a 29er wheel on the front with a 27.5 rear wheel. The result is a rowdy rig that cleans tight turns, but still bumps confidently on loose trails or chunky rock gardens. The drive train delivers punchy insta-power, with crisp gear changes exactly when you want it. Impressively spec'd with Fox Factory 36 and DPX2 shocks, this trail bike handles technical descents like a pro.

  • Full carbon frame scales down the weight while keeping your ride feel nimble and agile.
  • Agressive enduro/trail geometry gives a 65.1 degree headtube angle.

  • FOX Factory 36 fork (3-pos) absorbs shock with 150mm of travel.

  • Truvativ Stylo 32T crankset gives you lively power on hills, bumps or loose sections.

  • SRAM GX Eagle shifters give responsive gear changes.
  • SRAM X01 Eagle rear derailleur provides quick gear changes.
  • SRAM GX chain provides smooth drive power on a 12-speed 11-50T cassette.
