Its airformed aluminum frame is light and strong where it counts, and it's CVA link takes full advantage of 29er geometry to give you exceptional pedaling power even when the suspension is active. Stay above the bumpy fray thanks to the RockShox Monarch RT3 shock and the Revelation RCT3 fork, both of which give you the confidence to roll smoothly over chatter and huck that three-footer you've been eyeing. It all rolls on big yet nimble Stan's ZTR Flow EX wheels to keep you moving over big rocks, staggered roots, tight switchbacks, and everything in between.
