Endurance race inspired geometry
Thin seat stays increase compliancy over the bumps, increasing comfort without sacrificing stiffness and speed.
Internal cable routing
Full internal routing means tidy cables, clean lines, and reduced potential for cable snags.
Tapered steerer and headtube gives more precise cornering and increases feedback when riding.
Clearance for up to 32 mm tyres (Reef forks) or 28 mm tyres (Nemo forks)
A longer wheel base promotes stability and comfort on the downhills.
Compliant and stiff, nothing matches a carbon frame in ultra-endurance racing.
