An aggressive all-mountain geometry combined with a no-compromise component selection gives this hardcore hardtail its character. The handling is quick, snappy and playful. Featuring Gravity Tune, riders of all sizes achieve optimal body position and weight distribution, giving you predictable grip, improved handling and control. With the Torrent HT both novice and experienced riders alike will dominate rocks and roots on technical downhills and tackle steep, loose climbs with ease.
The Torrent's custom-formed, double-butted X6 aluminum frame features size scaled tubing to maintain the same frame stiffness and ride feel across all frame sizes. This allows us to provide the handling characteristics we intended for, delivering stability, strength and stiffness in a lightweight design.
To ensure riders of all sizes achieve an optimal weight distribution, the rear centre length of each frame size increases proportionately to the front centre length. This gives all riders the ability to maintain a centred body position resulting in predictable grip as well as improved handling, stability and control.
The larger air volume of the 27.5" x 2.8" tires provides a larger contact patch on the trail, increasing traction and control when the trails get rough and technical.
