Our Trail X series is proof positive that trickle-down technology is a good thing. Just a few years ago, the Enduro III frame would’ve been state of the art with its oversize, ovalized, tapered 6061 aluminum tubing, radically sloping top tube and trussed seat tube. In fact, it bears more than a passing resemblance to our Dakota dXC bike, with a frame that’s lightweight and strong, backed by proven geometry and killer parts spec. We’ve even upgraded it for 2012 with a 34.9mm seat tube and 31.6mm seat post for a firmer, more efficient pedaling platform.
The Trail X offers a slightly more upright riding position than our other mountain bikes to help relieve strain on neck and back, and give you a taller perch for see-over-traffic perspective on city forays. And the handling’s tweaked for a bit more stability, which helps you thread your way through the trail with confidence.
