  • 3x10 drivetrain is navigated by XT rear derailleur and Deore SL shifters and Deore front derailleur for consistent shifting performance across the 30 gears
  • Shimano BR-M446 hydraulic disc brakes provide easy, progressive braking with a 180mm rotor up front and a 160mm rotor in the back
  • Sturdy wheels are wrapped with the excellent all-arounder Schwalbe Rocket Ron tires to ensure great traction and fast-rolling performance on the trail

All bicycles sold at REI include a free warranty tune-up. New bikes go through a normal break-in period, after which readjustment is important for longevity and performance. Bring your new bike in to your local REI for its free tune-up within 20 hours of use or 6 months from purchase, whichever comes first. Contact your nearest REI bike shop to schedule this important service.
