This bike features an ultra-light, stiff and extremely robust state-of-the-art full carbon chassis built with our advanced Twin Mold Monocoque technique, and the exceptional Efficient Trail Control (ETC) suspension dynamics with 140mm travel. Our engineers sweated every detail to make this extraordinary 29er even better than its predecessors. So, for example, we improved our Agile Ride Geometry by adding a longer top tube and even more standover clearance. And Boost dropouts at both front and rear improve wheel tracking for better cornering, even on the roughest trails.
We needed components capable of matching the exceptional qualities of the frame. We began with a Fox 34 Float Performance fork with Boost 110 axle, for the ultimate in controllable suspension and steering precision. Next, we added a matching Float DPS Performance EVOL rear shock, for unmatched small bump response and big bump control. A wide, comfy CUBE carbon handlebar and powerful Shimano XT hydraulic disc brakes maximise control, no matter how tricky things get. Lightweight and tough CSW AM 3.9 wheels roll on tubeless ready Nobby Nic tyres for the maximum possible grip. And, of course, it’s all topped off with Shimano’s peerless XT 2×11 transmission, delivering silky smooth shifts via a 29er-specific 34×24 tooth chainring setup.
