Whether racing for the top step of the podium, clocking a personal best on your favorite singletrack loop, or discovering new trails, the Era is for women mountain bikers who want their bikes to be light, fast, and exceedingly efficient. The Era takes our most advanced FSR suspension and Brain technology and tunes it specifically for female riders.
WHAT FACT IS 10M carbon frame with women’s
Performance XC geometry, custom
carbon women’s layup, tapered head tube
with 1.5” lower bearing, and OSBB.
WHY To provide female Performance
XC riders with the stiffest, most
efficient, and lightest frame.
HOW By developing the frame with large
monocoque sections, we’re able to improve
fiber alignment and increase stiffness.
And since each bike is made from the
ground up, we can create specific goals
for the frame and execute accordingly.
For example, utilizing a reverse gusset
helped us achieve lower standover height
without sacrificing bottle clearance.
Future Shock E100 Fork &
WHAT 100mm-travel, externally tunable Mini
Brain rear shock and Future Shock fork
with women’s-tuned spring rates.
WHY Maximizes efficiency and control over
smooth and rough terrain by optimizing
spring rates based on female rider weights.
HOW When a rider encounters bump forces,
the Mini Brain’s inertia valve disengages,
allowing oil to flow and the shock to
immediately transition from firm (efficient)
to fully active (compliant) suspension
settings. By working from a bell curve
based on average female rider weight
(150 lbs. instead of the standard 180
lbs.) and utilizing wheel/spring rate
analysis, we can target the perfect
spring rates for each frame size.
XC Double Cranks
WHAT New double crank spec’d on the Comp
Carbon model (also recommended
for S-Works frameset).
WHY It’s what real riders are asking for...
plus, double cranks are lighter, better
shifting, and provide more useable/
less redundant gears, better ground
clearance, and less chain drop.
HOW Knowing what’s appropriate for female
XC riders and keeping in touch with trends
allows us to build a better riding experience
and create more demand for our bikes.
