ROUGH ROADS, GRAVEL OR DIRT. HOWEVER YOU CHOOSE TO ROLL, THIS BIKE DOES IT ALL. THE LIGHTWEIGHT, SMOOTH-RIDING COMPOSITE FRAMESET AND ADJUSTABLE WHEELBASE MAKE IT MORE CAPABLE THAN EVER.
KEY PERFORMANCE FACTORS:
Fast and light:
Advanced composite frame and fork save more than 160 grams compared to previous model. Updated geometry includes a lower bottom bracket, longer reach and steeper head tube angle for improved acceleration and climbing.
Dropped seatstays with thin tubing absorbs road shocks and vibrations. D-Fuse handlebar and seatpost work as a system to add compliance without sacrificing stiffness while cornering, sprinting or climbing.
Adaptable to the terrain:
A flip chip on the rear dropout adjusts the wheelbase: short for quicker handling, or long for improved stability at speed. The long setting allows for larger diameter tires up to 53mm. You can also choose the included D-Fuse seatpost for maximum compliance, or switch to a 30.9mm round or dropper post.
