Brakes

SRAM Guide T BrakesetGuide T brings the consistent performance that you have come to expect from SRAM's lightweight Guide four-piston caliper. Pair this with MatchMaker™ for a clean looking bar set-up, plus the ease of use with SRAM's Bleeding Edge™ drip-free bleed port and you have a smart budget minded brake that keeps you in control.

Avid CenterLine RotorsThe new CenterLine Rotor was designed to keep the center of friction consistent throughout rotation thereby minimizing vibration offering consistent performance and a quiet ride.

Wheel Set

WTB ST i25 TCS 2.0 Rims Laced to SRAM MTH Hubs32 DT Swiss Competition spokes are triple-crossed to SRAM's aluminum trail hubs, giving you solid trail feel, quick engagement, and all-mountain durability.

Maxxis Minion DHF Front TireThe Minion DHF was designed for the often loose and muddy conditions of aggressive all-mountain terrain. The DHF incorporates ramped knobs for low rolling resistance and channel-cut knobs to increase gripping edges, giving straight-line control and precise cornering.

Maxxis Ardent Race Rear TireThe Ardent Race tire is ideally suited for technical XC race courses and endurance-length events. With its medium-height tread, the Ardent Race bridges the gap between the XC-oriented Ikon and the trail-oriented Ardent. The center knobs are ramped to reduce rolling resistance, and the side knobs are angled and stepped to provide great biting traction in corners. Choose the Ardent Race for your next demanding XC race or epic trail ride.

Additional Features

Race Face Aeffect Dropper PostA rock solid option for riders wanting to enter the dropper market. A sealed damping system wrapped in 7075 aluminium makes for a lightweight dropper that can take the hits, complete with internal cable routing compatible with modern frame design.
