Revolutionary, super-light suspension that lets you ride harder on dirt and more smoothly on pavement. Better control. Better traction. Better comfort. Nothing sacrificed.,It’s Easier to Go Harder. Refined geometry and rider position deliver an experience that’s stable, composed and comfortable without losing that spark. Go further, ride longer, charge harder.,The Last Detail. We thought of everything. Big clearance for big tires. Tons of gear and storage mounts. Speed Release thru-axles. DirectLine cable routing. Internal dropper post compatibility. In short, the works..Topstone Technology:KingPin Suspension System. Up to 30mm of bump-smoothing suspension, without the weight and complexity of a shock or linkages.LockR Pivot. Thru-axle pivot locks the left and right seat-stays together, preventing independent rotation for a solid feel and instantaneous response.Big Tire Clearance. Comes with big 700x37c tires for grip and comfort, but has room for up to 40mm tires with tons of clearance. You can even put on 650 wheels with 48mm tires if small and fat is your thing.Carry That Gear. Plenty of places to store gear and water, with a multi-position mount on the downtube, and more on the top tube, seat tube, and under the down tube. There's even mounts on the forks.Fender Up. Fully fender ready. A removable fender bridge on the rear stays is there when you need it, gone when you don't.EasySpeed Release Equipped. Speed Release thru-axles offer the stiffness and solid feel of a thru-axle, with the easy use of a quick release axle. Compatible with most thru-axle wheelsets.Easy Internal Cable Routing. With our DirectLine cable routing, an internal tube guides the cable and housing through the frame, from entry to exit for headache-free service.Dropper Ready. Built to accept an internally-routed 27.2 dropper seatpost, which shouldn’t really be a surprise on a bike that's this off-road capable.
