    29er Trail-Taming

    With its ultra-modern, lightweight, yet robust aluminium frame, 130mm of plush suspension and big rig wheels, this do-it-all hardtail will complement your skills and allow you to push your limits. The progressive geometry means it rails corners with surgical precision, navigates tech climbs on the way up, whilst remaining planted at serious speed on the way back down. This massively capable trail rig is designed to cover distance at speed. Hit the trail centre, show it some singletrack, or go full blast on technical descents....however and wherever you ride, this hardtail has your back.


    No matter who you are or from what walk of life you hail, trail-riding is the great equaliser. It provides you with the opportunity to lose yourself in the thrill of the ride, to leave the everyday behind for hours of fun-filled adventures. So, get out there and blitz the trails, shred singletrack and attack technical descents with reckless abandon. When your knuckles are white and the grin is ear to ear, this big rig trail hardtail has your back.

    DESIGN &

    Designed around 29” wheels with 148mm Boost spacing and shortened chainstays, results in a super-fun frame that is fast, agile, and ready to tear up that local loop or hit the trail centres. Fully internal cable routing keeps everything quiet, tidy and well protected from mud and grime. With the ability to fit an internally routed dropper post you can make your ride as wild as you like.


    Ample frame clearance for a mammoth 29”x2.5” tyre keeps things fast-rolling with maximum grip.


    A modern trail geometry optimised for 130mm travel forks allows you to pump the trail and absorb the hits. An oversized 44mm headtube, slack 64° head angle and super-long wheelbase inspires confidence on fast descents and offers stable handling.


    The HT AL 29 is built around a lightweight and robust 6061 aluminium frame. Premium smooth welds and carefully designed gussets offer superior strength and torsional stiffness, allowing you to power up the climbs and carve through corners with knife-like precision.


    The HT AL 29 is a trail hardtail that’s built for speed, with fast-rolling 29” wheels making light work of the rough stuff and carry speed over technical trails.
