Responsive ride quality and maximum efficiency on fast, flowy singletrack. This lightweight composite hardtail is a great choice for XC racing or KOM chasing.
Lightweight and responsive
A handcrafted Advanced-grade composite frameset offers XC racers and riders a competitive advantage for climbing, accelerating and sprinting.
The frame is engineered with a high stiffness-to-weight-ratio, which translates to efficient pedaling power and precise handling on the trail.
Each frame is custom-tuned based on its size. Individual composite lay-up schedules are created to optimize vertical compliance to produce a smoother ride quality on XC terrain.
With its large-diameter 29-inch wheels and lightweight Advanced-grade composite frame, this responsive hardtail flies on XC terrain. The frameset is engineered for a 100mm fork, handcrafted with a specific composite layup schedule according to frame size. This creates an optimal stiffness-to-weight ratio with just the right amount of vertical compliance. It features wider Boost hub spacing, which improves wheel stiffness and adds clearance to run larger tyres, plus a host of other features that let you dial in its performance on XC terrain.

|Weight||The most accurate way to determine any bike's weight is to have your local dealer weigh it for you. Many brands strive to list the lowest possible weight, but in reality weight can vary based on size, finish, hardware and accessories. All our bikes are designed for best-in-class weight and ride quality.|
