DETAILS

Frame

Tig-welded 4130 chromoly steel front and rear triangles. The linkages are CNC machined 6061 T-6 aluminum and the idler pulley and pivot hardware are 7075 T-6 aluminum for increased toughness and strength. All pivots utilize Enduro MAX double-row 3802 bearings for durability and ease of service. The frame uses the SRAM Universal Derailleur Hanger for easy sourcing of spare hangers and to help ensure compatibility with future drivetrain products. 

Rear Shock

230 x 65mm EXT Storia LOK V3 Coil Shock custom-tuned for rider weight.

Headset

The frame has a 44mm straight headtube that uses a zero-stack upper cup and external lower cup for a tapered steerer fork.
