It's right for you if...
You want the performance of carbon in a trail-shredding package. You love the quick handling of 27.5˝ wheels and the plush ride of a long-travel bike, and want a durable parts group and a strong, light OCLV Mountain Carbon frame to handle whatever the trail can dish out.
The tech you get
A lightweight, full OCLV Mountain Carbon frame, a 160 mm RockShox Lyrik Select Plus fork with a plush DebonAir spring and Charger 2 RC damper that gives you more adjustment and control, and 150 mm rear travel with an ultra-responsive RE:aktiv shock. Plus, a mixed SRAM NX and GX 12-speed drivetrain, SRAM Guide R four-piston hydraulic disc brakes for more stopping power, a Bontrager Line Dropper and Bontrager Line Comp 30 wheels with a 54-tooth Rapid Drive hub for fast engagement.
The final word
A stiff full carbon frame that's built for rugged riding and gnarly trails, with great suspension and a solid, dependable parts group. It shreds straight out of the box, but it's also the perfect platform for upgrades down the line should you ever want to customise your trail ride.
