Do you ever imagine yourself riding like the stylish riders in mountain bike web videos? Love the challenge of accomplishing something you once thought impossible? Is there nothing better than a long day on the bike full of smiles and high fives? Sounds like a longer travel, do-it-all bike is in your future.
Mountain biking is constantly evolving… Trails are becoming more flowy and fun, jumps are growing, and style has become just as important as race results. Luckily there is still plenty of steep, technical terrain littered with roots and rocks when you really want to test your skills. Bike companies have caught on to this and are offering bikes fit for the job. Slack head angles, low bottom brackets, and more suspension allow for more confidence when the going gets tough. Fortunately these bikes are lightweight and pedal efficiently, getting you to the top quickly so you can earn your downhill. Trail,all mtn, and enduro bikes are the common terms coined by companies to describe these trail slaying machines ranging from 120mm to 170mm of travel. I’ve seen numerous riders transition from a 100 mm XC bike and really began to develop their skills on a more capable all mtn bike.
The process is easily the funnest bike I’ve had the pleasure of riding. I quickly found myself riding more aggressively than ever before. This particular 2015 model is currently available for a sale price that will better fit your budget. This bike is fully loaded… internal cable routed dropper post, tubeless Maxxis tires and WTB rims, Rockshox Pike, Shimano brakes, SRAM X9 derailleur with a clutch for smoother shifting and way less noise.
