Our progressive geometry and Split Pivot suspension design offer a well-balanced platform for pedaling, descending, and taking on technical features. A 140 mm RockShox Super Deluxe Select shock and 160 mm RockShox 35 Gold RL fork ensure plenty of travel for gnarly drops, gaps, and other features. On-bike cargo features like a down tube strap, top tube mounts, and a bottle mount let you keep the weight of your ride gear down low on the frame so you’re free to move your body without the burden of a pack. With Shimano’s robust Deore 1 x 12 drivetrain backing you up, you’ll find very few limits out there. Blackthorn Deore is the 29er all-mountain bike for big rides on diverse terrain.
