If you thought you couldn't afford the legendary and state of the art suspension experience of an Ellsworth ICT bike, think again. Ellsworth took time to qualify this project, using an international blend of efficient sourcing to put a package together that brings the performance and feel of an Ellsworth in a package that is affordable to everyone. With US certified drawn seamless Aluminum, Swaged, Shaped and Tapered tube set, and rockers Machined in Ellsworth's high tech machine in Oregon, Customized US made Fox Suspension components, Easton's top of the line Carbon Cockpit, and a PURE Shimano MTB component group, grounded on Ellsworth's outstanding All Mountain Wheels, with 15mm Quick Release on the front. Topped off with a Genuine Leather Saddle-- The efficiency of the Glimpse is more than how well it pedals. Tony Ellsworth carefully captured the performance of the state of the art builds, and put it efficiently in a box anyone can open and ride.
