Overview

Updated for 2017 with 140mm travel forks, the Torrent is the latest evolution of our aggressive all-mountain hardtail. Designed from the ground up with long, low and slack geometry, 40mm rims, and 2.8" tires, the Torrent's quick but stable manner will have riders whooping with joy on flowing singletrack, dominating rocks and roots on technical downhills, and tackling steep, loose climbs with ease. Novice and experienced riders alike will benefit from the increased traction and control of the Torrent.

Modern mountain bike trails take us all over the mountain – our bikes and bodies are ready. Up or down, mountain biking means doing it all.
