This item is currently sold out or unavailable online.

For your reference, this page contains historical product information.

This saucy hardtail features Shimano Rapidfire shift lever sets, Ritchey handlebar and stem, and WTB wheels and tires.

  • RST Gila T6 suspension fork delivers plenty of travel to smooth out the bumps and cushion landings
  • Upgraded, bomber 6061 aluminum frame will take you to the limit and beyond
  • Smooth-rollin' WTB SX24 rims reduce weight where it counts; teamed-up with MutanoRaptor tires, they're ready to tame the toughest singletrack
  • Shimano Alivio derailleurs and shift levers for smooth, reliable performance
  • Streamlined and responsive Alivio Rapidfire 8-speed shifters deliver excellent on-the-fly performance
  • Tektro mechanical disc brakes provide powerful off-road stopping power
  • WTB Speed V Saddle provides a soft and comfortable ride
  • Comes equipped with platform pedals

After its initial break-in period you might notice your bicycle performing less responsively than the day you brought it home. Not to worry, this is typical of all new bicycles and simply reflects that cables have stretched or their housings have seated themselves into final position. To keep running at peak performance, all REI bicycles come with a FREE warranty tune-up, which should be accomplished between the first 100-200 miles of riding or after the first two months if you're accumulating miles less quickly. Contact your nearest REI bike shop for details and an appointment for this important service.
