Frame is designed with endurance positioning and shorter chainstays for precise handling, agility and control. A longer reach, shorter stem and lower bottom bracket drop improves stability on rugged terrain.
New frame features thinner, dropped seatstays to absorb road shocks and vibrations. D-Fuse handlebar and seatpost work as a system to add compliance without sacrificing stiffness while cornering, sprinting or climbing.
Adaptable to the terrain
A flip chip on the rear dropout adjusts the wheelbase short for quicker handling and acceleration, or long for improved stability at speed. The long setting allows for larger diameter tires up to 53mm. You can choose the included D-Fuse seatpost for maximum compliance, or switch to a 30.9mm round or dropper post.
