A bike designed to get rowdy on after work rides on your home trails as well as for long days in the big mountains.
A trail bike with moderate travel would become our first MTB. Why? Because this is the bike you can ride most often. One that you can ride almost anywhere and have great fun. A bike that lets you push and pump, getting the every bit of speed out of fast, rolling trails. But also a bike that is not intimidated by steep, technical descents. And a bike that is efficient enough to pack that extra climb for one more trail into your ride.
Longer, slacker, lower with short chain stays. We are nothing to repeat how that concept works, because you probably already heard it a thousand times since we designed the first 29er using it before people even knew what a long travel 29er is (it earned the “the best geometry in the business” comment from Dirt magazine back then). Just let us tell you, it still works!
Something almost the entire industry gets wrong about is that the seat angel matter at the height of you saddle, not of your headset. Therefore we measure our seat angel at an average seat height of 750 mm. So you don’t get that “theoretically" ok, but in reality too much slack seat angle that so many 29ers suffer from.
The geometry is designed so that you can choose between using a 140 mm fork for total trail prowess, or 120 mm for more of an XC race feel.
