The frame features smooth welds, single water bottle bosses, lightweight frame, triple butted, construction and Boardman new 4 bar linkage suspension system with 130mm of travel. You also get 120mm of front suspension thanks to the RockShox Recon forks and is more than enough to take the front-end hits as you hurtle down the trails.
The shifting is taken care of via SRAM's X5 and X7 2x10 components (shifters and mechs) giving you 20 gears to play with. At it's centre is the double chainset from FSA with a chainring combination of 39/27 and works well with the 11-36 rear cassette. A wide selection of gears is at your disposal enabling you to tackle most off-road terrain situations with relative ease.
The Avid Elixir 1 hydraulic disc brakes provide awesome stopping power, which you'll need as you hurtle down the trail. Carving their way through the trail (and mud) are a set of Mavic XM319 wheels and these come supplied with a pair of Continental X-King 29 x 2.2 tyres. The 29" wheel has established itself as the most popular MTB wheel size for good reason. The benefits are simple to understand. A bigger wheel rolls over bumps better than a smaller wheel: this increases control, builds confidence, maintains momentum and makes you faster. The big wheels also provide extra traction in corners and off cambers as more rubber is in touch with the ground.
Frame heights are generally the same as the standover height so the bikes don’t feel bigger to ride. From a handling perspective the geometry of a 29er bike differs from a 26 with the chainset positioned noticeably lower than the centre of the wheel hubs, this provides a sensation of sitting in the bike, not on top of the bike, creating extra traction in faster corners and solid boost of confidence.
The finishing kit is thanks to Boardman with their E4P range present at the bars, steam, and seatpost with a boardman saddle perched on top.
