  • Megadrive

    A massive rectangular downtube and oversized toptube work in unison to provide superior front end lateral and torsional steering precision. The precisely engineered, rectangular shaped downtube yields unprecedented steering and pedaling stiffness

  • Trunnion mount

    New shock mount produces a lower leverage ratio for increased pedaling and braking efficiency, plus a lower center of gravity and shorter chainstays for improved handling, climbing and agility

  • 27.5 specific geometry

    Updated “long and low” XC frame geometry is tailored for 27.5-inch wheels to optimize control, acceleration and stability

  • Boost technology

    Wider hub spacing (110mm front/148mm rear) results in stiffer wheels for added control plus more tyre clearance and an improved chainline for optimal drivetrain performance

  • Aluxx aluminium frame

    State-of-the-art aluminum frameset material features best-in-class strength-to-weight ratios and unique welding technologies for a high-performance ride quality.

  • Overdrive

    Designed to provide precise front-end steering performance, the system’s oversized headset bearings (1 1/2” lower and 1 1/8” upper) and tapered steerer tube work in conjunction to provide optimal steering stiffness

  • Advanced Forged Composite upper rocker arm

    A state-of-the-art, high-pressure molding process is used to produce complex shaped carbon-fiber components that are lighter, stiffer and stronger than similar aluminum components

  • Maestro suspension

    Uses four strategically positioned pivot points and two linkages that work together to create a single floating pivot point for the most active, efficient suspension system
