The toughest trails are also the most tempting. Quick and always in control, this singletrack shredder is up for the challenge. Built on a lightweight, stiff composite frame with smooth Maestro suspension and nimble 27.5 wheels, it's just what you need going up, down and all around. Trance Advanced delivers cutting edge performance so you can climb faster and descend with more control. Featuring 140mm of rear suspension travel and 150mm up front, plus the agile all-rounder performance of 27.5 wheels, this progressive trail bike can do it all. The refined Maestro suspension system includes a trunnion mount shock and Advanced Forged composite rocker arm, which makes the whole chassis lighter and stronger. And overall frame geometry has evolved with shorter chainstays and a longer toptube for confident handling on aggressive terrain. 27.5 agility and control 27.5-inch wheels balance agility and control, giving you the ability to roll over rugged terrain, flick the bike at speed, change lines, and explode out of corners. Progressive suspension Maestro rear suspension features a trunnion mount shock with a longer stroke and smoother feel. With 140mm of rear travel (and 150mm up front), it features an Advanced Forged Composite upper rocker arm for increased stiffness and strength plus lower overall frame weight. Trail-tuned chassis The lightweight and stiff Advanced-grade composite frameset features balanced geometry to give you confidence on technical trails. The result is agile and efficient climbing plus added control for trails ranging from chunky singletrack to flowy high-speed
If Leonard Smalls were to trade out his beefed-up Honda VT500 and pedal his way across the Arizona desert, we have no doubt it'd be aboard the Unit. Burly. Steel. Hardcore. Mean. Mean? Sure. The Unit does not mess around. Its single-speed design and Cromoly frame make its simplicity shine and keep the moving parts long-lasting for those big excursions. Gear mounts on the fork legs and several options for mounting water bottles mean you won’t go without any of the necessary gear no matter where you’re traveling. Reynolds 520 Cromoly Reynolds 520 tubes are mandrel-butted for accurate profiles and available in a wide range of shapes. Weight savings from butting provides competitively priced, light framesets that are noticeably compliant on the road or the trail, and are guaranteed to last a lifetime. Internal Headset Bearing cups are actually pressed into the frame and are easily removable. An internal headset also reduces stack height, so the height of the stem and bars are more adjustable, giving the rider the best fit possible. 44mm Head Tube 44mm oversized heatubes allow us to run tapered steerer forks by using a large external lower cup headset bearing. The larger diameter steerer tube adds considerable stiffness and will increase responsiveness to the front end, improving all-around performance. Tubeless Compatible Rims Tubeless rims allow for tires with more puncture resistance; the ability to run lower tire pressure, which provides better tire grip on the trail; lower rolling resistance; and weight savings over traditional tube and tire systems. 12x148mm Axle 12x142mm, 12x148, and 12x157 rear axle standards provide two major advantages to the Kona rider: the 12mm diameter of the rear axle provides the rear hub and frame with a stiff interface, while the 142/148/157mm outer diameter of the hub allows the wheel to be quickly and properly positioned in the frame before the rear axle is inserted.
ARE YOU THIS RIDER? Do your friends ask if you intend to ride the chairlift when you invite them out for a 'few' park laps? Do your top routes frequently involve pushing up and down trails that aren't on any map? Do your favorite rides begin or end with headlamps, an ice chest, and great friends? Does your bike have to do everything well to get you there and back again? If you think you might be this rider, then Occam should be your bike. Suspension Modern trail bikes are used for an impressive variety of rides. Some riders use them to climb thousands of meters on huge rides, others weave in and out of bike parks and jumps during their daily adventures. Occam is available with either a 140mm Fox 34 or 150mm Fox 36 so you can ride the way you like. Trail Geometry - Slacker Head Angle: Great stability - Lower Bottom Bracket: Corners naturally - Longer Cockpit: Room to move while maintaining balance - Longer Wheelbase: Stability at high speeds - Steep Seat Angle: Proper pedaling position - Short Seat Tube: For long dropper posts Asymmetry—Strength - The right side support strengthens and stiffens a high-stress area. - Instead of using a less-efficient "shock tunnel" the Occam design offsets the shock to the left side of the frame, allowing the asymmetrical support to follow a more direct path. - This straight line that closely follows the shock mounting is the most efficient way to neutralize suspension forces on the front triangle. Asymmetry—Ergonomics & Balance - The asymmetric/offset design offers unique advantages beyond stiffness and low weight. The shock is mounted in a position that offers incredibly easy access to damper controls, while the tidy design leaves room for a bottle with easy left-side access.
