Rolling into the 29er Stage family we welcome the new Stage 4. If you know our Segment model, this is its replacement.
Short travel and big wheeled, this 120/110mm travel 29er can ride way beyond its travel figure, carefully reworked geometry and frame construction brings our compact rear to the new model with the same plus points we get through the range; more active and improved effect on small bumps
The Stage 4 uses 190 x 40 'metric' rear shock sizing which brings us several advantages. Firstly, compared to the legacy sized shocks we get more internal space for the shock to do its work. With a short travel shock this is a real performance benefit allowing the shock to run cooler when things hot up. Greater overlap in the shock's bushings bring more lateral stabilty to help counter natural lateral flex.
Confidence inspiring, low-slung and featuring the kind of angles more often found on longer travel bikes, this is the short travel 29er that rides beyond the short travel checkboxes with flare.
