The Walkthrough

favorite_borderWhy you'll love it

  1. It's a great bike for someone who's just getting into serious racing: you get high-end XC parts on an incredible frame with enough cash left over for entry fees
  2. There's nothing as sweet as a silent ride: the clutch rear derailleur prevents chain slap, even in the rough
  3. The frame is fully compatible with higher-end parts, like race wheels and a dropper post, if you ever find the need to upgrade
  4. A remote lockout lets you lock out the fork on flats without taking your hands off the bars
  5. The 1x drive train delivers a wide range of gearing with the simplicity of a single shifter
