At the front you'll find 200mm of travel coming through a custom-tuned RockShox BoXXer Team 650b fork and at the rear you get 200mm of travel via our Öhlins TTX rear shock.
It's also been built off of our S3 650b geometry ensuring a roomy top tube for added control ultra-short nimble chainstays a low bottom bracket that keeps you feeling planted and a slack front end that provides the utmost in responsive handling at speed.

> The frame features a full FACT 11m carbon fibre construction for low weight and heightened levels of strength and stiffness which is amplified by its asymmetrical frame design that still leaves plenty of access.
This has also been paired with our proven S3 Geometry that increases manoeuvrability and responsiveness while the 200mm of travel at the rear makes the bike capable of taking on the biggest of hits in stride.
> RockShox BoXXer Team 650b fork is nothing short of legendary.
