Wait - a long-travel trail bike that climbs well and goes hard on the trail? Yeah we didn't think it was possible either - until we designed the Enduro Elite. It's plenty stiff nice and snappy and with 29" wheels descends like a bike possessed. Meet your new trail buddy buddy.
Our quest was to create the perfect long-travel trail bike and it all began with a close look at the geometry. Basically we modernized it - slacking out the front end lengthening the top tube shortening the chainstays and lowering the bottom bracket. All of this together makes the bike truly feel glued to the ground and the platform is more responsive and capable than ever.
We then added some crucial bits to make your ride well better. We're talking stuff like integrated storage with a SWATâ„¢ Door at the down tube a triumphant return to a threaded bottom bracket and internal cable routing with guides that makes cabling super easy. And to keep the weight down the frame is constructed with our legendary tough-as-nails X-Wing layout with a FACT 9m carbon fibre chassis and M5 alloy rear-end. To guarantee high degrees of "shredability" this material choice is greeted by 160mm of plush front and rear travel plus a geometry that can be "adjusted" via a shock extension with a "low/high" setting.
For the build this Enduro is packed with drool-worthy gear like SRAM GX Eagle 12-speed shifting powerful SRAM Code R brakes hand-built Roval wheels and a FOX Rhythm 36 fork up front.
