Our quest was to create the perfect long-travel trail bike, and it all began with a close look at the geometry. Basically, we modernized it— slacking out the front end, lengthening the top tube, shortening the chainstays, and lowering the bottom bracket. All of this together makes the bike truly feel glued to the ground, and the platform is more responsive and capable than ever.
And to keep the weight down, the frame is constructed with our legendary, tough-as-nails X-Wing layout with a M5 alloy chassis and rear-end. To guarantee high degrees of ”shredability,” this material choice is greeted by 160mm of plush front and rear travel, plus a geometry that can be ”adjusted” via a shock extension with a ”low/high” setting.
For the build, this Enduro is packed with send-it-ready gear, like SRAM one-by 11-speed shifting, powerful Guide R brakes, crazy strong Roval wheels, and a RockShox Lyric fork up front.
