Manufacturer Description

The Chisel is the perfect bike for anyone looking to take the plunge into XC racing. It embodies all of the qualities you'd expect from an XC race bike, like light overall weight, incredible stiffness, and a race-oriented geometry—all with one-by gearing, too. PRO-LEVEL PERFORMANCE MADE AFFORDABLE We asked ourselves, “How do we bring pro-level performance down to a price more riders can afford?” D'Aluisio Smartweld Technology was the answer. Smartweld allows us to create the most consistent, high-strength welds possible while taking full advantage of compliant, ultralight alloy tubes. XC-FAST AND TRAIL-BIKE CAPABLE Cross-country courses have grown more technical, so why we gave the Chisel a dose of trail bike DNA. The Chisel’s longer top tube, shortened head tube, and slightly slack front end increase its downhill stability without sacrificing its climbing ability. • Light, stiff, and durable, the premium M5 alloy frame is the perfect racing platform. • RockShox Judy Silver 29 fork, complete with lockout and adjustable rebound damping. • SRAM’s SX Eagle 1X drivetrain gives you the gearing you need to tackle any climb.
