The Cross Country category is probably the most physically demanding but at SUNN they believe that performance shouldn't diminish riding pleasure. This is what has inspired their XC range of ever lighter and higher performing bikes. Not everyone is a competitor, so their XC bikes are also designed to be fun to ride as well as race ready and will ensure countless good memories on your bike. The Shamann Finest features top of the range SRAM X0 componentry for lightweight and reliable transmission. The geometry and pivot placements have been designed to give the perfect efficient balance of traction and acceleration coupled with long distance comfort, making the perfect marathon bike. With 100mm of rear travel the shocks are custom valved to attain this perfect balance and to give the rider a highly responsive ride feel. The frame itself is built out of lightweight butted Alpha tubing and features cartridge bearings throughout.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HappyD2 Truly the finest
Top quality machine. Components are outstanding for the sale price. £800 rockshox World Cup carbon crown/steerer forks. £500+ 1480g American Classic tubeless wheels. Formula R1 brakes (superb), £50 KMC X10SL chain. full SRAM X0 drivetrain including the £175 cassette that the other manufacturers usually cut down to a cheaper model. All up my bike weighed in at 9.9kg w/o pedals! That's lighter than most £2k carbon hard tails. The suspension is firm and suited to XC. If you are not fixated on having the latest fashion 29er this bike is a bargain at £1999 - 10% = £1799.
