Sketchy singletrack, sick jump lines, brutal cross-country courses, crazy enduro stages, the top step of podiums – we’ve been there, we’ve done that, and we’re eager for more. Are these the best mountain bikes in the world? That’s not for us to say. But yes, they are.
Modern cross-country riding is a mix of flat-out speed and technical sections. The purpose-built bikes for today's XC rider have evolved. More stable front-ends, shorter stems, and steeper seat angles deliver a more sure-footed ride and the dynamics to increase speed and handling prowess uphill and on descents. Our line-up features superlight hard-tails and full-suspension rigs that'll crush the competition and get you to the finish line faster than ever before.
THE ULTIMATE XC WEAPON
Cross-country (XC) racing has evolved. The courses are faster and more technical, and the competition is stronger and tougher. Meet the all-new Doctrine, the ultimate hardtail race machine. It’s lighter and stiffer than anything that’s come before it, and its efficienct geometry makes it climb quicker, handle better, and descend with greater control than any hardtail you’ve ever experienced. XC has evolved. So, too, has the ultimate XC weapon.
The Doctrine represents the lightest, sleekest, and most capable hardtail design we've ever developed. At the heart of the Doctrine | Advanced | XT is a winning carbon frame spec'd with a great assortment of parts that'll handle the rigors of training and racing.
