THE SB100 IS A STRONG XC CLIMBING MACHINE, BUT THE GRAVITY-INSPIRED GEOMETRY, 120MM FOX 34 STEP-CAST FORK AND MEATY TIRES ARE ALL TRAIL.
The result is a perfect blend of pedaling efficiency with downhill prowess. We redesigned the Switch Infinity mechanism specifically for 100mm of travel – it’s light, and tucks behind the seat tube so we can accommodate a water bottle in the front triangle. Big days require big bottles. Instead of chasing featherweight on the build, we spec’d the bike as we tested it – Fox Transfer post, Maxxis 2.3 tires, and 180mm front rotor. It’s still light, but also right.
