Lightweight 6061-T6 Alloy Frame

A lightweight 6061-T6 alloy frame provides a bombproof chassis for trail centre assaults with great upgrade potential for fitting a chain guide thanks to the ISCG tabs.

Our aggressive trail geometry has been designed around 27.5" (650b) wheels and a 120mm travel fork, a short head tube and low bottom bracket keep the centre of gravity low and provide improved handling whilst the larger wheel size offers improved performance and handling.
