Arguably one of the most versatile bikes in the range. Rip up and down mountains - all day, every day. For many riders this carbon beauty could be the one bike they will ever need. It sits right in the middle of the panorama of categories and can be used for anything from long distance rides to fun days out at the bike park. The adjustable reach and BB height add even more options to dial the bike to your riding style. On paper this bike has 130mm of travel but don’t be fooled, it really feels like it has much more than the quoted numbers. It's the big wheels and dialled geometry that define this bike's capabilities. At the same time, the climbing capabilities of this bike are formidable. The frame’s unique semi-internal cable routing is a solution that is elegant and easy to service. Large, sealed pivots guarantee long periods of smooth, service free function.

Frame size recommendations:
M 170cm - 182cm
L 180cm +


You can raise the BB height by 5mm from the stock settings by using the adjustable shock mount or you can completely transform the bike by changing the shock mount & shock (changes travel from 155 mm to 130 mm or vice versa).




The pivot that is most difficult to replace is hidden inside the frame and remains completely isolated from dirt and water inside the frame.


The cables appear to be threaded through the downtube and chainstay...



But actually, they are only hidden in a special channel in the construction. Easy to replace anytime, anywhere!
