The Core 2 is a true freeride hardtail that will feel great to ride hard on any kind of challenging terrain – from big drops and jumps to long climbs and winding singletrack. We believe that steel is the ideal material for this kind of bike –it’s strong, not prone to catastrophic failure and does not transmit vibrations as harshly as the aluminium in frames that most manufacturers specify. The geometry of the Core is identical to the Surge aftermarket frames. The bike will be stable at high speed and on big airs, but will also allow the rider to pedal back home quite comfortably. And even our hard-core dirt-jumping riders, who tried the Core, reported that they felt totally at home with the riding position. So, if you want a do-it-all hardtail, you should be riding this bike.
