  • Hatchet Drive creates a floating suspension system that minimizes rear shock stiction, stiffens up the rear end and gives a plush ride with its RockShox Monarch 3.1 rear shock
  • Main pivot point is placed to reduce pedal feedback for an efficient pedal stroke; bottom bracket design increases stiffness for improved power transfer and minimal flex
  • All-mountain frame geometry deftly navigates you through roots, rocks, drops and across boards; shock forces are reoriented in 2 directions for dispersion
  • ISCG tabs let you run a chain guide or HammerSchmidt™ cranks
  • RockShox Lyric DFR Coil U-Turn fork delivers an adjustable 160 - 115mm of front travel so that you can dial in the ride you want
  • Shimano SLX Shadow rear derailleur and shifters provide quick, dependable shifting through the 27 SLX-crankset-powered gears
  • Fine tune your speed with the Magura Louise hydraulic disc brakes
  • Formula hubs, DT Swiss Competition spokes, Mach1 2.30 rims and Kenda Nevegal tires combine to form a smooth-rolling package of tenacious traction to conquer wild trails
  • Specs are subject to change

Made in USA.

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.
