Keeping it simple doesn’t mean keeping it boring.

As you turn into more proficient, the suspension corrected fork will also be upgraded for much more challenging terrain to hone your skills on.
Power transfer is through a single speed drivetrain with FSA Megatooth 30T crankset and a SRAM 11-36T 10-speed cogset. This gearing combination strikes a very good balance for pretty much any trail: high enough to keep you from spinning out; low enough that will help you get over so much hills and rises. Braking is performed by a set of Tektro hydraulic discs with 180mm front and 160mm rear rotors that may slow you down in any weather, any terrain.

Once sealed the WTB Trailblazer 2.8″ tires and Midi Charge 40mm SOAC rims allow you to run lower pressures, somewhat trick that makes for better traction and a stupendous handling bike.
