Seek and enjoy.
Perhaps your path to enlightenment lies along a twisty singletrack at 180 beats per minute. If so, it’s time to emancipate your mind and body from your daily languor. The Enlightenment was designed for exactly that, with maximum power transfer and lightness to help you on your quest for speed.
The Enlightenment foundation is a carbon fiber frame that is sturdy enough for rugged trail conditions, yet light enough for race day. The just-right blend of World Cup style nimble handling and stability has cemented its legacy, and this is what gives you the confidence to hammer through sinuous trails with short sightlines.
Modern features include tapered headtube, and PF30 BB pressfit bottom bracket shell. The Enlightenment takes a side swing front derailleur, a 31.6mm seatpost, and a 12x148 boost spacing thru-axle rear hub. Complete bikes are available with Sram Eagle XX1, X01, GX builds as well as Shimano XTR 12 speed and XT builds. The frameset comes with a 1-1/8 - 1-1/2” integrated headset and is recommended for use with a 100mm front suspension fork.
