    • Intended use: Enduro
    • Wheel size: 27.5”
    • Travel: 155mm, Horst link suspension with horizontal floating shock mount
    • Recommended fork travel: 160-170mm
    • Construction: Carbon Monocoque ABS T700 and T800 Toray carbon construction with 6061 T6 triple butted rear triangle
    • Large 15mm main axle with Collet lock security
    • Shimano 142 x 12mm E Trough axle system
    • Aggressive Enduro Geometry (low, Slack, Long with short stem)
    • ISCG 05-mounts for chainguide compatibility
    • Bolt on downtube protector to protect the downtube and cables from rock strikes
    • Full internal cable routing
    • Main pivot location: This is located in a fixed high and forward position in line with a 32T chain ring position, this gives natural anti squat/bob when pedalling in the most commonly used 1x 32T setup without relying on excessive chain tension and none of the related pedal feedback
    • Chainstay pivot location: This pivot is placed in line with the chainstay eliminating any force directed to the shock linkage causing the shock to compressing (pedal bob) due to chain tension. This pivot location also maximizes active suspension when using the rear brake similar to a floating brake design without the added weight
    • Rearward Axle path: Because of the main pivot location the Sommet has 66mm of travel with reward axle path helping to keep your momentum.
    • Leverage rate design: The leverage rate is designed to have a falling rate to sag point then go mildly progressive; this helps the bike sit comfortably in the sag position with a stable platform. The lower shock mount moves forward with the suspension, this helps to keep a linear rate without falling off at full travel. This movement also reduces the shock angle change at full travel reducing side loads and improving the reliability of the shock.
    • Rear wheel travel is controlled via a RockShox Monarch Plus RC3 Debon Air custom tuned air rear shock.

    Easy Assembly

    When you order a bike, one of our trained mechanics will carefully prepare and pack your bike for shipping. Upon delivery, the assembly is simple and all necessary tools are conveniently included in the box.

    Depending on the delivery service and destination, bikes will either be delivered in a large or a small box. Below is a guide as to how your bike will arrive:

    • All bikes for delivery within the UK and Republic of Ireland will be delivered in a large box, except for kids’ bikes and BMX bikes, which are always delivered in manufacturer's boxes.
    • All bikes for delivery within the EU on a standard service will be delivered in a large box. If an express delivery option is chosen, your bike will be packed into a small box. Again, the exception is kids’ bikes and BMX bikes, which are always delivered in manufacturer's boxes.
    • All bikes for worldwide delivery outside the EU will be delivered in small boxes.
