Internal Cable Routing
Derailleur and rear brake cables are routed internally from integrated ports near the headtube to an exit point below the bottom bracket. This helps create a cleaner look and protection from the elements.
Dropper Post Compatible
30.9mm seattube diameter and clean internal cable routing allows for easy dropper seatpost upgrade
Lower Seatstay Junction
Rear triangle is designed with seatstay tubes that meet seattube at a lower point below the top tube junction. This adds compliance for a smoother ride quality and helps reduce overall frame weight.
1X and 2X Compatible
Frameset is designed to work with either a single or double chainring crankset. For 2X setups, either a side-swing or down-swing front derailleur can be used
Mounts on the seatstays and chainstays make it easy to accessorize with racks, fenders or a rear kickstand
