It's right for you if...
You're all about fast and fun trail rides with your friends. But you want to have fun faster, so you want a carbon frame and a high-end spec you can rely on for long days in the saddle.
The tech you get
A lightweight OCLV Mountain Carbon frame with Stranglehold dropouts, a 120 mm RockShox Pike Select Plus fork with Solo Air spring and Motion control damper, a SRAM GX Eagle 1x12 drive train and SRAM Guide R hydraulic disc brakes. Plus, SUNringlé Duroc 50 mm rims, included tubeless rim tape and valves, 29x3˝ Bontrager XR2 Team Issue TLR tyres, a Bontrager Line dropper post and a 35 mm Bontrager Line Pro carbon handlebar to match the burly disposition of this go-anywhere, ride-anything monster.
The final word
The Stache 9.7 pairs the light and smooth ride of carbon with the traction and momentum of 29+ mid-fat tyres to make a fun trail hardtail that holds its own with both the distance-crushing XC crowd and your rowdy trail-riding buddies.
favorite_borderWhy you'll love it
- 29+ has an incredible amount of merit, and this lightweight carbon frame brings the platform to its full potential
- Fun is faster than ever with a lightweight Stache carbon frame and top-shelf parts
- Stache is super versatile and equally at home on multi-day bikepacking trips as it is on rough singletrack
- We're not the only ones who love it: Outside Magazine says, '[Stache 9.7] is the world's best hardtail mountain bike – hands down'
- It's super easy to go tubeless with the included Tubeless Ready tyres, rim strips and valves
Advanced frame tech
Stache is surprisingly nimble thanks to extra-short 420 mm chainstays. The elevated mid-stay makes room for the extra-big tyres while Horizontal Sliding Dropouts allow you to fine-tune your wheelbase length.
29+ is a wider 3" tyre that grips relentlessly while floating over terrain. Yet it delivers all the 29er benefits that you know and love, like greater momentum and improved rollover.
Internal cable routing
We route shift and brake cables through the frame to keep things clean and simple. And it looks great, too.
Use the remote lever to lower your saddle so it's out of your way when you're descending and cornering.
