With its large-diameter 29-inch wheels and lightweight Advanced-grade composite frame, this responsive hardtail flies on XC terrain. The frameset is engineered for a 100mm fork, handcrafted with a specific composite layup schedule according to frame size. This creates an optimal stiffness-to-weight ratio with just the right amount of vertical compliance. It features wider Boost hub spacing, which improves wheel stiffness and adds clearance to run larger tires, plus a host of other features that let you dial in its performance on XC terrain.
