Don't be thrown off by the amount of suspension on this bike. The 115mm of rear travel feels plush, smooth, has great small bump performance and traction and basically feels like 130 to 140mm. Why is less travel good? Think manoeuvrability and that feeling of being able to pop out of a corner, off a little jump or sprint up a climb - things longer travel bikes basically struggle with.
Geometry is a great balance of ergonomics for a strong climbing bike and wheel-base & angles for stable, fast descending bike.
Be your best on the most challenging trails. Climb technical steeps and rail descents with confidence and speed. This all-new alloy-framed 29er features reengineered rear suspension and progressive geometry to help you up your game.
