F29 4

average rating

The cure for the common 29’er.

The F in F29 doesn’t stand for F-ing Fast, but it probably should. Fast because of the F29 series’ proprietary SPEED SAVE micro-suspension technology, which keeps speeds high and fatigue low, and their ultralight and ultra-stiff frames which ensure that all those precious watts get converted into race wins.

F29 IS:

  • Super stiff laterally and vertically compliant thanks to SPEED SAVE stays and BallisTec carbon construction.
  • A tight corner destroyer with its 29er race geometry and super precise handling Lefty fork.
  • So light you can eat that cupcake guilt-free.
  • Rider profile:

    For racers and discerning hardtail purists seeking for the pinnacle of 29er handling and light weight.

    TECHNOLOGIES

    THREE GREAT FRAME OPTIONS

    • F29 Hi-MOD: High modulus BallisTec Carbon. At just 1050 grams for a large frame, the F29 Hi-Mod is in a class of it’s own.
    • F29 Carbon: 1200 grams. By using a higher percentage of intermediate modulus fibers, we bring BallisTec carbon technology to more price points, while still staying lighter than the competition.
    • F29 Alloy: SmartFormed alloy brings so much performance, you’ll forget it’s not carbon.


    • 29’ER RACE GEOMETRY
      By utilizing super short chainstays, a lower BB and a steeper head angle the F29’er Carbon has the same sharp handling and lively feel of our 26” race bikes, only with the roll-over-anything ability of bigger wheels.
    • LEFTY SYSTEM INTEGRATION
      29’ers love Lefty. It’s true. Its unmatched stiffness and light weight make an even bigger difference on the big wheeled bikes.
    • SPEED SAVE VIBRATION ELIMINATION TECHNOLOGY
      SPEED SAVE rear stays allow the rear wheel to track the ground, improving control and reducing fatigue.
    • CONTINUOS CARBON
      On carbon models, stiffening fibers run uninterrupted from the head tube to the rear dropouts to increase overall frame stiffness while retaining compliance for exceptional ride-feel.
