Frame: Designing a frame to incorporate plus size wheels, 120mm of travel and Bosch's superb drive system isn't easy. It's a good thing, then, that our designers are up to the task. Using our decades of experience in aluminium frame construction and a neat trick or two, we built a chassis that's light, stiff, strong - and has the clearances required. Boost hubs ensure accurate tracking and precision steering, even when things are getting rowdy. Just like our other Stereo Hybrid bikes, the low top tube and Agile Ride Geometry make for a highly nimble, easily controlled trail companion. Meanwhile, Efficient Trail Control kinematics provide a neutral, easily adjustable suspension setup that'll tackle anything you throw at it.
Adaptable X12 Hanger
We optimized our new dropout design based on the Syntace X12 through-axle system, enlarging the area of the frame where the hanger is mounted. We can now fit the longer Direct Mount hangers. Shifting precision and stiffness is therefore improved. With the new design it's also possible to swap the whole contact area of the axle with the hanger should the system be worn out.
