Legend has it that Raleigh's Skarn Sport eats rocks for breakfast, technical descents for lunch, and endless singletrack climbs for dinner. Can the legend be true? With a light aluminum/carbon frame, Fox Float Performance shock, and RockShox Recon fork, all delivering 100mm of travel, there's reason to believe the rumors. With that much balanced, plush suspension smoothing out the trails, it's hard to believe it could get any better, but the Skarn has big 29-inch wheels wrapped in Kenda tires to help you go even faster with even more control. Okay, so the legendary speed's great, but you'll need to slow it down to human speeds at some point, so the Skarn's got Tektro Auriga hydraulic discs to modulate your gnar. Top this storied bike off with a host of Raleigh components for durability, and you've got a rig ready for its place in the history books.
