      Second nature.

      A trail bike with its priorities straight: progressive design, playful agility and killer capability – all in the name of fun.

      Where it thrives

      Challenging trails, up and down hills

      What it's built for

      Traction, handling, durability

      Highlights

      • Carbon frame / SRAM GX/NX Eagle drivetrain
      • Fox Float Performance 34 140mm fork / Float Performance DPS EVOL shock
      • Stan's NoTubes ARCH S1 rims / DownLow dropper post

      Flow seeker.

      The head angle is slack, the stays are short and the seat angle is steep. It’s that long, low modern geometry that helps you wring a little more flow out of every kind of trail.

      The right stuff

      More Info

      29” wheels with big, grippy tires. Properly wide bars and properly short stems. Powerful brakes and dropper posts. Straightforward parts for straightforward performance.

      Easy to love

      More Info

      Designed to be a "daily ride", the Habit is built for easy service with proven, durable suspension pivots, tube-in-tube internal cable routing and no oddball proprietary stuff.

      Proportional Response suspension

      Riders come in all sizes. Most suspension doesn't. Proportional Response is the only suspension design that tailors the actual suspension layout by size so that every rider gets optimal traction, suppleness and control.
