Light and agile, yet also super stable on rough trails. The heart of the Trance 27.5 is its stiff and super-strong ALUXX SL aluminum frame. Bolstered with 5.5 inches of proven Maestro Suspension travel, and engineered for 27.5 wheels, it's the fast way to own the trail.
Designed to provide precise front-end steering performance, the system’s oversized headset bearings (1 1/2” lower and 1 1/8” upper) and tapered steerer tube work in conjunction to provide optimal steering stiffness.
A massively oversized bottom bracket/chainstay area features a fully integrated, 86mm-wide BB design. Asymmetric chainstays provide additional stiffness on the driveside and stability on the non-driveside.
The precisely engineered, rectangular shaped downtube yields unprecedented steering and pedaling stiffness.
Utilizes four strategically positioned pivot points and two linkages that all work together to create a single floating pivot point for the most active, efficient and independent system on the trail.
Trail-riding frame geometry tailored for 27.5-inch wheel size Maestro Suspension bike to optimize control, stability and acceleration.
Frame features unique internal cable porting for sleek, uncluttered appearance and performance.
142/135mm convertible rear dropouts let riders choose which format works best for their needs.
