KEY PERFORMANCE FACTORS Adjustable frame geometry New flip chip feature lets you change the headtube and seattube angles, as well as the bottom bracket height, to fine-tune handling for varying trail conditions and individual riding style. 29er confidence and control Larger 29-inch diameter wheels optimized to roll over rough terrain with balance and stability, giving you the momentum to tackle technical climbs and the confidence to fly on fast, rugged singletrack descents. Progressive trail design Lightweight, strong and durable ALUXX SL aluminum frameset features a longer reach and steeper seattube angle for aggressive trail riding and improved climbing capabilities. Updated Maestro rear suspension features a 120mm trunnion mount shock paired with a 130mm fork up front. Tech highlights This versatile trail machine is built on a lightweight, stiff and super-strong ALUXX SL frameset that blends our latest Maestro suspension technology with adjustable frame geometry. The Advanced Forged Composite rocker arm has a flip chip that allows you to adjust frame geometry. Choose steeper or slacker headtube/seattube angles and either a 35mm or 45mm bottom bracket drop to fine-tune the handling for your riding style and terrain. It’s designed around a 130mm travel suspension fork, and the overall geometry has been tuned to maximize its performance on rugged trails.
