Overview

Updated for 2018, the Range Aluminum is the ideal Enduro bike - purpose-built to rip downhill with category-bending capability. Now available in 650B and 29er models, the Range Aluminum features modern Enduro suspension performance and geometry optimized for each wheel size. It climbs efficiently for a big rig, but unleashes its full potential when pointed downhill - delivering confidence-inspiring stability and control for serious speed over technical terrain. Race an Enduro, shred gnarly singletrack with friends, or skip the pedaling and do a few laps of the bike park - the Range Aluminum is the ultimate accomplice.

Charge fearlessly down the mountain, then pedal back to the top to do it again. Hours in the saddle leave our minds and bodies drained… we leave everything on the racecourse.
