Details

The Release 1 is proof positive that getting a great bike doesn’t always require that you fork over a great big pile of cash. Built from a light yet tough aluminum frame, this all-mountain ripper features our much-lauded Level Link suspension design, which isolates chain forces from trail inputs. Or to employ less tech-geek speak, the suspension doesn’t bob when you stomp on the pedals, yet becomes extremely plush the moment your wheels start smacking roots and rocks. Our entry-level Release 1 is actually anything but “entry.” We’ve equipped it with an SR Suntour Aion suspension fork and a SR Suntour EDGE R rear shock, our Blanchard tubeless-ready wheelset, and Sram SX Eagle drivetrain components. TRP Slate X2 hydraulic disc brakes help bring you to a stop, though stopping is probably going to be the last thing you want to do when you bring this bike up to speed.
