With over 25 years of downhill racing knowledge, the M-series’ legendary legacy continues, although the M29 is not ‘just’ a bigger brother of the M16. With specifically designed kinematics and geometry to compliment the 29-inch wheels, the M29 is a fast, fierce and fun downhill bike as competed by our athletes Aaron Gwin, Neko Mulally and Jack Moir.
With special features and some of the finest DH components on the market such as an optimized carbon layup, high quality wheels, internal cable routing as well as the distinguished M29 frame that was developed with the INTENSE Factory Racing team, the M29 is as striking as it is nimble when it comes to the challenges of downhill. It was prototyped in racing, in fact one of the original M29 alloy mules finished on the podium with Jack Moir at Fort William in 2017 – an emphatic moment, and absolute confirmation of the potential that would be unlocked for everyone to enjoy once the M29 project reached production status.
