MTB hardtail with our special geometry DNA converted into the trails performance. The key engineering challenge with this frame was to combine stiffness with compliance. Oversized headtube to add stiffness and precision. We use box-section tubes in the main triangle with high-modulus carbon fiber reinforced in key areas where there are high pedaling loads. The rear stays are thinner and the fibers are laid up to be laterally stiff, but allow the flexibility you need to ensure some comfort.
