The Walkthrough

favorite_borderWhy you'll love it

  1. Unrelenting confidence: this bike lets you ride sections that you never thought you'd be able to clean
  2. It's great for riders who don't want to do just one kind of mountain biking, but who want to explore everything from XC marathons to epic descents
  3. Dropper posts and 1x12 drivetrains are two of the best mountain bike innovations in recent years – this bike has both


Features

Will my bike have a curved top tube?

Smaller frames (14˝ and 15.5˝) have a top tube that dips down as it approaches the seat tube. This design makes for a lower standover height, which is good for shorter riders because it allows them to straddle their bike more easily. Larger frames (17.5˝ and up) have a straight top tube because taller riders with longer legs typically don’t have the same issues with standover height.
