VITTORIA

Vittoria has made a strong name for itself in the offroad world as Geax and its’ Mezcal tire is versatile for all types of terrain with lower profile knobs in the center for low rolling resistance and side knobs for aggressive grip.
TUBELESS

Benefits of a tubeless set-up are reduced rotating weight and the ability to use lower inflation pressures for greater traction without the risk of pinch flats. WTB TCS rims feature a tubeless UST “On-Ramp” profile providing a consistent fit between the rim and the tire for easy installation and inflation.
ROCK SHOX SUSPENSION

The Dakar and Halo XC feature a Monarch R shock that offers adjustable rebound damping and a single valve air spring . It’s light and easily adjusted to suit rider and riding style.
STOPPING POWER

Top-notch braking shouldn’t break the bank. Shimano’s M365 hydraulic brakes offer the power, the smooth modulation and all-day, all-conditions reliability.
TAPERED HEAD TUBE

Riding fast with control requires steering precision, which starts with the front of the bike. Stiffening this area results in less wheel deflection, more wheel control. A tapered 1 1 /8” to 1 1 /2” head tube serves up a significant increase in rough terrain tracking and stability without much of a weight penalty compared to standard 1 1 /8” systems.
WTB SADDLE

WTB has been producing mountain bike components for over thirty years. The Volt is the latest evolution in saddles. It has enough padding for all day riding comfort yet scant enough weights for XC competition.
XC MP2 SUSPENSION

The mp2 suspension system is active with a near vertical wheel axle travel path, plus excellent lateral & torsional stiffness for rear wheel tracking precision.
ASYMMETRICAL CHAINSTAYS

The XC’s chainstays are asymmetrical, with an elevated straight stay on the non-drive side and a dropped curved stay on the drive side. The drive side must be dropped & curved to clear the front derailleur and chain, but running the non-drive side straight from the dropout to BB pivot reduces weight while significantly stiffening the rear triangle laterally. There’s more tire clearance, too.

DAKAR XC

Full suspension opens up a whole new world of speed and control off-road. Modernized with 27.5” hoops, this is the frame platform that’s won us numerous industry accolades and Bike of the Year awards. Perfect rigs for the experienced rider who is looking to upgrade to their first dual suspension or for new riders looking for a head start in performance.
