Now we're getting serious. 29
  • All-terrain 29" Captain Control tires are 2Bliss ready and built for speed on the trail
  • Light and durable double-walled 29" alloy rims are tough enough to handle the rough stuff
  • Shimano Deore Shadow 9-speed rear derailleur for quality shifting performance and improved clearance
  • Shimano dual-piston hydraulic disc brakes assure solid, worry-free braking performance under any conditions
  • Shimano crankset with forged alloy arms and Octalink-splined BB interface means greater durability and better shifting performance
  • 80mm-travel RockShox Tora 29" fork with external rebound/preload adjust for quick fine-tuning and lockout to minimize bobbing on long climbs
  • Fully butted, smooth-welded M4SL alloy superlight frame with 29er trail geometry and integrated head tube for better control, leverage, and bump performance
