Two Personalities…and they’re both Bad-Ass.

Thanks to its OverMountain dual-travel DNA, the Trigger 29 gives you the most out of each pedal stroke on nasty climbs with 80mm of travel, yet doesn’t compromise when descents get rowdy with 130mm of seemingly bottomless confidence. Imagine being able to pick any line, up or down, and charge it at full speed - that is what the Trigger 29 is all about.

Trigger 29 is

  • The freedom to attack any line you want, up or down.
  • The right geometry at the right time with Attitude Adjust.
  • The genetically perfect result of Scalpel 29 and Jekyll “riding” together.

Rider profile:

Aggressive-descending 29er fans who know the more efficiently they can climb, the more they can descend.

TECHNOLOGIES

  • TRAVEL
    80mm to 130mm on-the-fly adjustable rear travel.
  • DYAD RT2
    Two-shocks-in-one DYAD technology with shock stroke, air spring volumes and damping created specifically for the Trigger 29.
  • ATTITUDE ADJUST
    Switch between modes on the DYAD and the bike’s geometry changes too. Steeper and more nimble in Elevate mode, lower and more stable in Flow mode.
  • BALLISTEC CARBON / SMARTFORMED ALLOY
    Using fibers developed by the military for ballistic armoring, this high-strength carbon construction process yields a frame that’s lighter than aluminum and pound-for-pound stronger than steel. The alloy versions use our ultra sophisticated SmartFormed aluminum construction for a frame that’s strong yet light.
  • ECS-TC SYSTEM
    Clamped, 15mm thru-axles in the shock linkage and swingarm pivot, as well as double bearings in the seat stay pivots eliminate flex and provide unmatched center-stiffness for complete control.
  • LEFTY SUPERMAX
    The most torsionally rigid suspension fork ever made, the SuperMax brings unheard-of levels of steering precision to longer travel 29’ers. The unique 60mm offset helps increase both high speed stability and low speed agility - perfect for Trigger 29’s full-throttle attitude.
