MASTER TECHNICAL XC TERRAIN WITH SPEED AND STABILITY. THIS NEW 29ER IS PERFECT FOR XC RACING, MARATHONS, OR TRAIL EPICS.

Built on a totally reengineered ALUXX SL aluminum frameset featuring 90mm of rear suspension travel and 100mm up front, this all-new 29er delivers speed, balance and control on fast, technical XC terrain. It’s optimized for larger-diameter wheels with an updated Maestro suspension system that’s configured for a tighter rear triangle. The updated geometry makes it a quicker and more agile on climbs and descents. The trunnion-mount shock produces a smooth, supple feel with improved pedaling efficiency.

And Boost wider hub spacing improves wheel stiffness for better control in rugged 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.
