Additional information



, , ,


Built for modern XC racing, this full-composite flyer tackles steep singletrack climbs and technical descents with speed and control. With FlexPoint Pro rear suspension and race-ready geometry, it puts you at the front of the pack.

Key Performance Factors


Advanced composite frameset is 241g lighter than previous generation. The bottom bracket area is stiffer for faster acceleration, and a steeper seat tube puts the rider in an efficient climbing position.

Superior control

FlexPoint Pro suspension delivers 100mm of smooth, active rear travel. The frameset features modern XC geometry including a slacker 67.5-degree head tube and 110mm suspension fork for technical descents.

29er stability and speed

Frame geometry and suspension are optimized for fast and stable 29-inch wheels. A longer reach and modified cockpit including a 35mm composite handlebar and alloy stem further boost balance and stability on XC terrain.
