It's right for you if...

You’re looking for a versatile, wallet-friendly frameset you can build up exactly the way you want. You'll fly through singletrack, tackle rugged, all-terrain commutes, or both, depending on how you spec it.

The tech you get

A lightweight and sturdy Alpha Silver Aluminum frame, internal routing to protect cables from the elements, mounts for a rear rack and kickstand, and a headset. Designed with Smart Wheel Sizing: smaller frames fit 27.5˝ wheels and larger frames fit 29˝ wheels.

The final word

It's a light and capable frameset at a great value. You can spec it as a solid cross country mountain bike without breaking the bank, or build up a rugged commuter that easily handles potholes and rough roads.
