The Ignite SLX is the top model in our hardtail, cross country mountain bike range.
This MTB features an extremely ingenious carbon lay-up which is key in achieving such amazing riding characteristics that you'll feel from the first pedal stroke. At the front end of the bike we use Toray Carbon with high tensile strength. At the rear, we opted for a different carbon lay-up to maximize vertical flex. The increased steering angle (trail) provides an extra stable riding feel. Our R&D also gave the seat stays an asymmetrical, oval shape to maximize stiffness. We don't let a single Watt go to waste!
The result is an Ignite SLX MTB that's light, stiff and agile. Take those flowing singletracks and steep slopes faster than anyone else…for the win!
