The best trail bikes are neither whippy nor overbuilt. They are, in a word, balanced. We sweat the details—painstakingly developing the precise mix of resins, composite fibers, lay-orientation and frame shaping to create a chassis with the perfect blend of strength and stiffness.
We’ve also given the Trail 429 many of the same strength and stiffness-enhancing features that you’ll find on our gravity-oriented bikes, including a double-wishbone rear triangle, Super Boost Plus rear axle spacing, ultra-wide suspension linkages and burly bearing assemblies. With the Trail 429, we’ve upped the ante on downhill performance without any loss in versatility.
