Efficiency, versatility, and control—these are the fundamental characteristics of our Sport Trail Geometry. And when you're just starting to get your hands dirty on the trail, it's the perfect place to start. With it, you'll find short seat tubes, top tubes, wheelbases, and chainstay lengths, which means that you'll feel more efficient, better fitted, and in control over a diverse selection of terrain. Meanwhile, the Sport Trail Geometry continues this theme by including slightly steeper head tube angles. This way, you'll be making every pedal stroke count, while sacrificing very little in descending prowess.
A1 PREMIUM ALUMINUM FRAME
By controlling everything from the raw material to extrusion, butting, swaging, and heat treatment of the tubes, we’ve optimized our A1 Premium Aluminum frames for the best balance of ride characteristics. Our proprietary aluminum tubing blends high performance, light weight, and high value to create frames that are light, strong, and corrosion-resistant.
On the trail, the stopping power of disc brakes stands without rival. And whether they're hydraulic or mechanical, disc brakes provide increased modulation, power, and reliability through any condition or terrain. The design also works independent of the rim, so they come with the added benefit of performing with equal aplomb to get you home safely when your wheels are out of true. The combined result? You're able to ride with more confidence and control.
