  • XC Agility Meets All-Mountain Stability


    OutFront Steering Geometry gives you the best of both worlds: slack and stable on hectic descents, yet quick and nimble everywhere else.

  • Insane Traction - Without Compromise

    Proprietary Ai offset drivetrain delivers super short chainstays for climb-winning traction and agile handling, without sacrificing mud/tire clearance or limiting you to single ring set-ups.

  • Explosive Stiffness.

    Just say no to energy wasting flex. The F-Si Carbon is stiff in all the right places thanks to an evenly-dished Ai rear wheel, super-short chainstays and BallisTec Carbon construction.

  • The Best XC Fork… Period.

    With its unbelievable rigidity and confident steering precision, Lefty out-corners, out-handles and flat-out rides circles around its flexy XC competition. Custom extra-long fork offsets (rake) make our OutFront Steering Geometry possible.

  • FIT-FOCUSED WHEEL DIAMETERS

    To achieve the best possible fit for all riders, size small is designed around 27.5 wheels, while M thru XL get 29"
