TUNED TO WIN

Forget the harsh ride that plagued aluminium in the past. DSW, and hydroformed tube shaping, allowed our engineers to tune specific areas of the frame to create the perfectly balanced ride. It’s laterally stiff for instant power transfer and acceleration, yet it’s vertically compliant so you experience less fatigue from trail chatter. End result? You can go harder, longer.

THE FUTURE OF ALLOY

How do you bring pro-level performance down to a price more riders can afford? D'Aluisio Smartweld Technology, that’s how. By completely rethinking the way aluminium frames are constructed, we can deliver a combination of light weight, strength, stiffness, and compliance that’s never been possible before. Smartweld is the future of alloy.

READY TO RUMBLE

XC racecourses get more technical every season, so we took the progressive, trail-taming geometry we pioneered with the Epic Hardtail and applied it to the Chisel. The result is a confident, nimble ride with incredible downhill stability at speed, and it pulls this off without sacrificing climbing or steering performance. It’s a winning combination you won’t find in any other aluminium XC hardtail.

THE ALL-NEW CHISEL

SHAPED BY RACING

Shaped by everything we have learned from 40 years of XC racing, the new Chisel is a purebred XC race machine that crushes climbs, rockets out of corners, and rips through rock gardens with the speed and efficiency of the highest-performing, most-capable aluminium XC bike available. Turns out carbon isn’t the only way to the top step of the podium, after all.

RACING WEIGHT

It’s no secret that XC races are won and lost on the climbs, and that’s why we put the Chisel on a serious diet to deliver one of the lightest alloy hardtail frames out there, we’re talking carbon light. Cutting-edge D'Aluisio Smartweld Technology \(DSW\) and space-age M5 aluminium allow it to climb and accelerate so fast and efficiently you’ll swear there’s a motor hidden in there somewhere.
