XC RACE
For riders who want to begin to compete at a higher level, on a race-proven 29-inch hardtail
that packs huge performance and value, Crave is an ideal rig. These riders are becoming
more dedicated racers and will benefit from Crave’s lightweight and efficient frame equipped
with race-capable geometry, quality air-sprung suspension forks, and lightweight 29-inch
wheelsets.
RACE-PROVEN PERFORMANCE
•
Race-level performance and amazing value
•
•
Highly efficient, fully butted, and lightweight M4 alloy
frame with shaped seatstays for increased vertical
compliance
Ultra-quick acceleration and handling with race-capable geometry and tapered 1-1/8” to 1-1/2” headtube
•
High-end performance and light weight, thanks to
a 100mm-travel, air-sprung fork with tapered alloy
steerer, magnesium lowers, and rebound adjust
•
Smoother ride and lighter weight through tapered seat
tube, bridge-less seatstays and 27.2mm seatpost,
which allows more compliance and minimizes excess
material
WHY IT'S GREAT
M4 ALUMINUM FRAME
WHAT: Fully manipulated M4 aluminum
frame with XC 29er Geometry, plus
tapered head and seat tubes, and
shaped seatstays.
WHY: Keeps the bike stiff and efficient,
with super-quick handling and
acceleration, while allowing for a
smooth, compliant ride.
HOW: Like all our 29er geos, this one
features short chainstays and a longer
toptube to optimize performance with
the larger wheels. The Crave frame
provides 12.5% more vertical
compliance than the previous frame
through redesigned seatstay shaping.
For maximum torsional rigidity and
snappy handling, the headtube tapers
from 1-1/8” to 1-1/2” at the crown. The
Crave seat tube utilizes a 27.2mm post at
the top, but widens at the bottom bracket
for a compliant ride and stiff crank
interface.
AIR-SPRUNG FORK WITH TAPERED
STEERER
WHAT: Lightweight, air-sprung fork with
magnesium lowers and a tapered alloy
steerer, plus hydraulic lockout and
damping.
WHY: Reduces weight and improves
bump absorption, steering precision, and
tunability.
HOW: Air-sprung forks are lighter than
coil-sprung versions, and allow the rider
to tune the spring rate to their specific
weight and riding style. Damping
provides more controlled suspension
movement.
LIGHTWEIGHT 29-INCH
WHEELSETS
WHAT: Race-capable, lightweight alloy
wheelsets on every model.
WHY: To provide quicker handling and
improved durability and efficiency.
HOW: By using less material in low stress
areas, which reduces rotational weight
and requires less effort from the rider to
turn the wheels.
