Product Description

The top tier of our 3-model Core 27.5" trail range leads the line with a brand new 6061 double-butted aluminium frame and a speclist that'll not leave you wanting

Up front there's a highly capable 120mm travel air-sprung Suntour Raidon XC-LO-R fork with lockout and rebound damping; the drivetrain is a Deore 3x10 set up including a clutch rear mech for increased chain security, your wheels spin on Centrelock hubs laced to WTB tubeless-ready rims, and braking duties are taken care of by Shimano's new M425 hydraulic stoppers. Ideally suited to riders who want great spec and performance in a very accessible package.

Hybrid 6066/6061-T6 tubeset

At the heart of the Core lies our brand new hybrid double-butted alloy tubeset – a clever mix of two differing grade alloys to help give us high levels of stiffness in certain areas and compliance/flex in others. The higher density 6066 downtube and chainstays provides the basis for a stiff and efficient pedaling platform, whilst the 6061 toptube, seat tube and seatstays help give and added element of compliance and comfort, acting as a nice buffer between rider and trail.

Tubeless-ready rims

Nice and wide Alex MD23 rims (28.4 mm OD/23mm ID) give a great high volume, tyre profile and have a tubeless ready bead hook – just add rim tape and sealant.

Clutch rear derailluer

The one-way clutch mechanism found on the Shimano Deore Shadow Plus rear derailleur offers a whole new level of chain security without resorting to restrictive and unefficient chainguides. The system effectively locks the lower cage in place to prevent dropped chains/chain slap/chain suck, whilst has an easy on/off switch for removing the rear wheel. Simple, clever and supremely effective.

27.5" Wheels

Sitting at a nice halfway house between the wagon-wheeled 29ers and the longstanding 26in wheel, the 27.5" wheel not only rolls better than its smaller 26in counterparts but is also both lighter and more maneuverable on technical terrain than a 29" wheel. Perfect middlegorund/best-of-both - Win-win in our book.
