It's right for you if...
You're building a custom all-mountain bike for getting a little wild and blasting sketchy lines. You love leaving the ground and you're looking for a ride you can whip around on the rowdiest trails.
The tech you get
An Alpha Platinum Aluminum frame with 150mm of rear travel and a RockShox Super Deluxe Select+ shock, plus a Straight Shot down tube and Knock Block headset with a Bontrager Line 35mm stem. Mino Link adjustable geometry and Control Freak cable routing for a dialed build. Made for 27.5" wheels.
The final word
A stout trail frame that's fun to ride on the roughest trails, and most at home on the biggest all-mountain rides. A piggyback shock that can keep up with the longest descents and dialed frame details give you a head start on your custom build.

Will my bike have a curved top tube?
Smaller frames (S) 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 (M and up) have a straight top tube because taller riders with longer legs typically don’t have the same issues with standover height.
Alpha Platinum Aluminum
Our premium lightweight aluminum is continuously cold extruded and butted at multiple points, and hydroformed into sophisticated tube shapes for maximum strength and minimum weight.
Control Freak Cable Management
The lightest, quietest, most versatile cable management system allows any combination of shift, brake, lockout, and dropper post lines to be routed through the frame for clean looks and the ultimate custom setup.
Wider dropouts (110mm front, 148mm rear) give you the stiffness of a 27.5" wheel with all the benefits of a 29" wheel, and Boost148 in the rear lets you run wider tires and a larger chainring without affecting q-factor and pedaling efficiency.

Sizing & Tech
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.
