Manufacturer Description

Blackthorn Carbon GX Eagle hits a sweet spot of incredible pedaling efficiency and downhill prowess for a well-balanced platform that’s ready for all of your big trail outings. The stiff, durable carbon frame is designed around our Split Pivot suspension system, which offers excellent small-bump compliance yet pedals better than most other all-mountain bikes can. 140 mm rear and 160 mm front travel soak up drops, gaps, burly rock gardens, and all the other terrain you encounter. SRAM’s GX Eagle group equips you with a wide enough gear range to climb anything you put your legs to, and the four-piston brakes let you dial down speed quickly enough to hit the perfect line. Blackthorn Carbon GX Eagle is a dream rig, whether you’re sessioning jump lines or exploring rugged backcountry trails.
