What? Powerful disc brakes
Why? Braking with a disc offers more consistent, predictable braking in any conditions, whilst also reducing wear on the wheel rim, allowing you to stop with confidence.
What? 27.5” or 29” wheel options
Why? 27.5” wheels are more nimble and accelerate faster, giving greater technical ability, whilst 29” wheels roll faster and smooth out bumps in the trail.
What? 100mm (4 inch) travel
Why?Keeping your front wheel on the ground for better traction and grip allows you to handle better, and puts less pressure on your wrists for a more comfortable ride.
