Frame: The detail reads like a frame building wish-list: mechanically formed 6061 aluminium tubes, double butting, IS brake mount on the chainstay, internal cable routing, PressFit bottom bracket and a tapered head tube. Everything is there to ensure that not a single watt of power is wasted and that every steering input is transferred to the trail - and all this is achieved with incredibly low weight. We even took comfort into account and incorporated a 27.2mm seat post. The LTD SL can handle any trail and, thanks to Agile Ride Geometry, remains agile and lively whether your opt for the 27.5 or 29 inch option.
Features: Is this a performance trail bike... or a race bike? The answer is simple: both. The extraordinary Fox 32 Float Performance suspension fork with 100mm travel is the perfect match for the frame's precise handling, delivering smooth, progressive trail-taming bump absorption and razor-sharp steering. To meet the needs of the most demanding rider we specced Shimano's crisp-shifting XT drivetrain and brake groupset with 36x26T chainset. The XT ShadowPlus rear mech with Direct Mount attachment delivers near-instantaneous shifts, while Shimano's I-Spec mount system cleans up the rider cockpit. High quality DT-Swiss spokes join tubeless-ready CUBE EX21 rims to reliable, smooth Shimano Deore hubs for the ideal wheel package.
