With the SRAM GX Eagle gearshift and the 1 x 12 cassette, the ambitious athlete as well as the relaxed touring rider will be offered all the variants and additional riding fun on any terrain. A Marvel Comp TS Air fork with 100mm is installed. Together with the good components of the own brand ZZYZX and the top tire from Continental, the hardtail is perfectly equipped.

The Frame

A detail in the frame of the new X Vert 29 0.2 is the unique geometry of the top tube. A slight bend at the upper end and, compared to other models, a slightly shorter top tube ensure that impacts on the front wheel are optimally damped and thus a comfortable riding feeling is ensured. The aluminum frame convinces with good stiffness, light weight and excellent processing. The Low Profile Chainstay brings the rider´s power even more effectively onto the road and makes the X Vert a true climbing specialist.

On the trail

The X Vert is a bike which is characterized by its versatility and is suitable for (almost) every trip. The unique frame geometry ensures a light, stiff and agile aluminum hardtail. The bike has its strengths especially during longer climbs, thanks to the shorter top tube. Of course a hardtail can not be compared with a fully concerning the downhill performance. But the X Vert 29 0.2 scores in the downhill with a great fun factor.  The MTB is not only an ideal choice for experienced riders but also suitable for beginners in competitive sport, because the components are well chosen and perform their services reliably.
