Geometry

Ten extra millimeters of added fork travel gives the bike a more balanced overall suspension feel and helps rake the front end out a bit more, and an added 25mm of reach on each size brings the bike firmly into the running.

Geometry is adjustable using Devinci's FRG flip chip system located in upper seatstay pivot, allowing you to slacken the head angle out an additional 0.4-degrees while also tuning the bottom bracket height and seat angle.
