At the pinnacle of the XC game resides Specialized's S-Works Stumpjumper 29er. Its heart is a feathery S-Works FACT-carbon frame, which absolutely flies uphill and boasts race-proven geometry for the trip back down. Up front, RockShox's 90mm RS-1 fork with BrainFade dismantles techy trails for premium control and efficiency. And this rig is spec'd with the best of the best. We're talking full XTR 2 x 10-speed gearing, feathery carbon components, Roval SL carbon wheels, and Magura carbon brakes for supreme control in all weather and trail conditions. Plus, you also get Specialized's Command Post XCP dropper seatpost for 35mm of wiggle room when the descents get extra steep. Is this one of the fastest bikes on Earth? Specialized Factory riders think so, and they back it up with podium spots. A lot.
Go beyond the lifts, higher than the shuttle truck, and pedal past those pushing up, and still absolutely crush the downhillls with Specialized's Enduro Expert Evo 650B. This gravity-fueled rig dissects every track with 180mm of coil-sprung travel front and rear thanks to the pairing of a RockShox Boxxer Team fork and an innovative Ohlins TTX22M shock. When it's time to climb back up and do it again, an M5 aluminum frame with FSR suspension boasts loads of traction and reasonable weight. Plus, this speed machine boasts lightweight, big hit-worthy Roval DH wheels, a pro-level SRAM 10-speed drivetrain and powerful SRAM Guide RS DH discs with an 200mm rotor up front.
Felt's Virtue 1 is a big-wheeled, long-travel, trail-charging enduro machine. This carbon frame boasts Felt's 130mm-travel Equilink suspension controlled by a RockShox Monarch RT3. That set-up smooths chatter and big hits all day long, and slingshots you out of corners when you get on the pedals. A tapered head tube and rear thru-axle ensure precise precise steering and tracking. Built to handle a 140mm-travel fork and 29-inch wheels, the Virtue 1 Frame is ready to be turned into the trail-slaying steed of your dreams.
Legendary rides are borne from a combination of good friends, great trails, and incredible bikes. Build your next legend on Intense's Tracer T275C. Your journey down the enduro track starts with a full carbon monocoque frame that's light and responsive, but more importantly, as aggressive as you are when it comes to shredding. Combine that with a low bottom bracket and short chainstays for the kind of whippability you'll want to brag about. That's all paired with a balanced 140-160mm of legendary VPP travel. See how quickly a legend can be born?
Tom Ritchey applied his 40 plus years of racing, designing and building steel mountain bikes into the P-29er. Like all Ritcheys, this bike is born to go fast without sacrificing comfort or durability. Heat-treated, triple-butted Ritchey Logic II tubing in their own unique butting profiles results in a frame that balances rough trail compliance with sprint-winning stiffness. The 29er-specific geometry was defined by the best way Tom Ritchey knows: countless hours of saddle time under Tom himself, World Cup legend Thomas Frischknect, and other racers. The result is nimble handling that captures the benefits of the big wheels, stable yet responsive, equally at home on all-day epics or tight, technical singletrack. • Ritchey forged-and-machined 1.5" tapered head tube • Fork: designed for use with 100mm travel forks • Weight: 2,150g (Size: L/19") • Bottom Bracket: 68mm English threaded
What does ECR mean? Anything you want it to. Go camping, ride the Divide Trail, disappear into the woods, and conquer any road. Surly's ECR is a super capable camping machine/trail bike that's outfitted to explore wherever you point the front wheel. Surly's favored chromoly tubing damps road buzz and provides a nimble, responsive ride. The heart of the ECR is the 29+ wheel capability, with clearance for 29 x 3.0-inch tires. Fat tires mean smooth-rolling traction, stability to spare, and a touch of suspension over the roughest terrain. On top of all that, frame eyelets galore are just waiting for racks, fenders, and whatever else to make this your pedal-powered escape pod.
Say hello to Surly's rowdy, trail-shredding Instigator 2.0. The no-nonsense chromoly frame is made for charging hard and going big. It's super tough, yet handles nimbly and accelerates like mad. The heart of the bike is Surly's 26+ platform which has clearance for 50mm-wide rims and 2.75-inch tires, so you get endless traction and the rollover-action of a 27.5-inch wheel, coupled with the snappy, go-fast responsiveness of a 26-incher. The geometry is dialed for a 140mm travel suspension fork and features a long top tube and short rear end for more of the same fun. And this thing is versatile, the frame comes with dropouts for rolling singlespeed, or geared with a quick release or a 142x12mm through-axle with a Shimano direct-mount hanger.
