The Sniper is a ground-up, dedicated, pedaling machine with 100mm travel front and rear. Short travel bikes should descend like their long travel siblings and that’s what we have worked to craft into the Sniper. This is no “Twitchy XC bike”. With the 29” wheel size and progressive XC geometry, you get a stable ride that goes where you point it. Offered with a standard hardware package as well as a light weight SL package to shave grams, the Sniper takes XC Racing and training to a whole new level.
• Longer front center per-size and spec’d with a short 50mm stem to offer a comfortable fit with precise steering.
• Slack headtube angle coupled with a 44mm offset fork give the bike the forgiveness and confidence of a big travel bike with the power responsiveness of a hardtail.
• Long wheelbase helps provide stability and traction while riding fast and rough terrain.
• An ideal BB height of 13” on Sniper keeps your pedals out of the dirt and helps to maintain a low center of mass while riding.
