The aluminum frame is strong and durable, and the SR Suntour 100mm travel fork helps soak up bumps on the trail or rough roads. Shimano drivetrain components provide accurate shifting, and the wide range of the triple crankset is up for the challenge of the steepest climbs. Tektro hydraulic disc brakes offer excellent stopping power and control, even in wet conditions. Kenda Slant 6 tires provide great grip and smooth out the trail with their 2.35-inch width.
