Colombian cross-country racer Leonardo Páez rode this frameset to the Mountain Bike Marathon World Championship title in 2019. To celebrate that win, and to make this superlight composite flyer available for purchase, we created this limited-edition frameset with custom graphics. The Advanced Composite frameset is engineered with Maestro rear suspension and progressive XC race geometry that’s optimized for 29-inch wheels.

Highlights

Engineered with a superlight and stiff Advanced Composite mainframe and rear triangle, this limited-edition 29er frameset features 90mm of smooth rear suspension travel. Created to celebrate Colombian XC racer Leonardo Páez, who won the 2019 MTB Marathon World Championship riding this frameset, it has 29er-specific geometry built for speed and stability with a 100mm suspension fork. The special graphics include a gloss black finish with bold splashes of blue, red, yellow and green that represent the colors of the world champion’s rainbow jersey. The top tube is inscribed with the world champion’s #LionPaez nickname. The Maestro rear suspension system is fitted with a Fox DPS Factory shock that has a remote lockout. The trunnion mount shock produces a lower leverage ratio for efficient pedaling and braking performance. The Advanced Forged Composite upper rocker arm is lighter, stiffer and stronger than aluminum, and the linkage allows for shorter chainstays to improve climbing capabilities and overall agility.
