Our quest was to create the perfect long-travel trail bike, and it all began with a close look at the geometry. Basically, we modernized it— slacking out the front end, lengthening the top tube, shortening the chainstays, and lowering the bottom bracket. All of this together makes the bike truly feel glued to the ground, and the platform is more responsive and capable than ever.
And to keep the weight down, the frame is constructed with our legendary, tough-as-nails X-Wing layout with a M5 alloy chassis and rear-end. To guarantee high degrees of ”shredability,” this material choice is greeted by 160mm of plush front and rear travel, plus a geometry that can be ”adjusted” via a shock extension with a ”low/high” setting.
- The RockShox Monarch Plus rear shock not only features our AUTOSAG technology, but houses a 3-position compression adjustment, along with a rebound adjustment.
- RockShox Yari RC fork features a 15x110mm Maxle Ultimate thru-axle, a Solo Air™ spring, and 160mm of plush travel to take on big hits and bumpy terrain with supreme speed and efficiency.
- The X-Fusion Manic dropper post features size-specific (125/150mm) travel, and zero-millimeters of offset.
