Trance X SX


Award Winning Bikes

From loam to chunder, alpine peaks to desert rock, this trail slayer has a 29-inch front wheel and 27.5-inch rear for the ultimate combo of quickness and control. With 145mm of rear suspension, a beefy 160mm fork, and adjustable geometry, it’s ready to let loose on black diamond descents.

Key Performance Factors

Updated suspension

This “SX” series features all-new Maestro rear suspension with added travel (145mm) for technical singletrack and rugged descents. The trunnion mount shock and Advanced Forged Composite rocker arm combine for a longer stroke that has a smooth, active feel, plus greater stiffness in the chassis for precision control. The rear suspension is paired with a longer travel 160mm fork, giving riders superior confidence and control on the descents.

Adjustable trail geometry

A three-position Maestro flip chip lets riders dial in frame geometry to suit their riding style and terrain. The high setting adds more ground clearance, a good option for tight, technical terrain. In the low setting, the head tube gets slacker and the bottom bracket drops, ideal for confident handling at higher speeds. The middle position is neutral. In addition, a new headset flip chip adjusts reach so you can easily achieve your preferred positioning.

Mixed wheel setup

A 29-inch front wheel provides speed, stability and front-end control on rough, technical trails. A 27.5-inch rear wheel adds agility and maneuverability to help riders rail corners, pop over features and show off their style.


An ALUXX SL aluminum chassis features a new Maestro rear suspension setup with 145mm of rear travel. Combined with a 160mm fork, this longer travel trail bike gobbles up rocks, roots and ruts with total control. The mixed wheel “mullet” setup combines a 27.5-inch rear and 29-inch front, a playful combination that blends rollover capabilities with quick and agile maneuvering. The frame is equipped with two, three-position flip chips. The rear flip chip, located on the rocker arm, lets riders adjust geometry and fine-tune the handling. And a new headset flip chip offers 10mm of reach adjustment to dial in position and fit. New, integrated frame storage inside the down tube makes it easy to carry tools, snacks and other essentials. Mounts below the top tube offer an additional option for storage, and protection on the down tube prevents damage from trail debris and transportation.

    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.
