Rock rolls, sketchy drops, and step-ups. This new full-composite trail machine handles it all with confidence and control. New longer travel Maestro rear suspension (145mm), adjustable geometry, and a mixed wheel setup make it a singletrack sensation.

Updated suspension
This “SX” series features an all-new Maestro rear suspension system with added travel (145mm) for technical singletrack. The trunnion mount shock and Advanced Forged Composite rocker arm combine for a longer stroke that has a smooth, active feel, plus greater stiffness in the chassis for improved tracking over rough terrain. The rear suspension is paired with a longer travel 160mm suspension fork, giving aggressive trail riders added confidence and control.

Adjustable trail geometry
A three-position Maestro flip chip lets you dial in frame geometry to suit your riding style and terrain. The high setting adds more ground clearance, a good option for tight, technical singletrack. The low setting creates a slacker head angle and lower bottom bracket for confident handling at higher speeds. The middle position is neutral. In addition, a new headset flip chip provides 10mm of total reach adjustment.

Mixed wheel setup
This model comes with a 27.5-inch rear wheel. The smaller wheel diameter delivers an agile, snappy feel on the trail and more saddle-to-tire clearance in the rear. Riders typically favor this “mullet” setup for riding steep, technical terrain.
