Whether you're making a full-go at cross country mountain bike racing or simply looking to upgrade your confidence level on the trail, the Crave hardtail mountain bike proves to be the perfect choice. To make sure of it, we built the Crave on our race-proven 29er geometry that mates a low-slung bottom bracket and roomy top tube with incredibly short chainstays. But how does this translate to the ride? Well, you get the benefit of feeling planted and secure in the bike without sacrificing snappy, responsive handling or power transfer to the rear end. And when you factor in a durable, lightweight M4 aluminum frame and build specs that are competition-ready, the Crave quickly becomes the obvious mountain bike for anyone who demands speed and reliability.
