It's right for you if...
You're a trail veteran and a regular at your local XC races. You want parts upgrades that make you faster, like lighter carbon wheels and a wider-range drive train that saves your legs on the steepest climbs.
The tech you get
A light and stiff carbon frame with trail-smoothing IsoSpeed, a lighter RockShox Reba RL fork with a Solo Air spring, Motion Control damper and a remote lockout, an extra-wide-range SRAM GX Eagle drive train, hydraulic disc brakes, fast 29" Bontrager Kovee Elite 23 carbon wheels and a carbon seat post.
The final word
An awesome bike for serious racers. The upgraded fork and carbon wheels give you big weight savings for a faster ride.
favorite_borderWhy you'll love it
- Carbon frame, carbon wheels and carbon seatpost spec'd for a lightweight performance ride
- The IsoSpeed decoupler makes it ride smoother than any other hardtail, so your body doesn't get beaten up by trail chatter
- You get a Straight Shot downtube for extra-stiff, responsive handling without added weight and a Knock Block headset that protects against spinning bars and fork crowns
- Carbon rims save rolling weight so you can go faster with less effort
- The new SRAM GX Eagle drive train gives you an extra-low climbing gear that saves energy over the long haul
Straight Shot downtube
Straight Shot downtube gives you an extra-stiff frame without adding any weight, so you can stick your line through the rough stuff and still fly up the next climb.
Easier internal routing
Integrated channels in the frame make it super-easy to route cable housing and brake hose so you get a clean setup with no hassle.

Sizing & fit
The charts below show our recommended sizes based on height, but there are some other factors, like arm and leg length, that determine a great fit. That’s why you’ll see some overlap in our recommendations. Not every rider who’s 5´8˝, for example, will fit on the same size bike. The best way to find your perfect fit is to consult the experts at your local retailer.
