Tapered head tube. Knuckle Box suspension. 6" front and rear travel. Weapons grade aluminum frame. Fox float shock. Pro pedal platform. Hydrualic disc brakes. All these phrases are great, but don't really mean much until you put them together into one bike. Enter the Mission line. These all mountain rigs are light and nimble enough to climb up the trail, but rugged enough to get you back down. The Mission 3 rallies any drop, rock shoot, or winding ribbon of single track. With a frame built around a custom-valved Fox RP23 XV rear shock, it’s the perfect complement to the Knuckle Box's linkage. This creates a smooth suspension platform and superior bottom-out-resistance resulting in a better ride. A Fox 32 Float RL Fit 150mm fork delivers nearly 6inches of plush suspension helping you to push through whatever is in your way. The FIT damping cartridge, w/ ext. compression / rebound / lock out knobs allow you to dial in your suspension to the perfect setting. A butted Alloy 1.5 Tapered steerer delivers a stiff front end for precise steering. Truvativ’s Hammerschmidt AM 2 speed (22/36t) transmission delivers immediate shifting, a perfect chain line, and peace of mind knowing that you’ll never drop a chain again. Throw in a set of AVID Elixir CR hydraulic disc brakes, a full Sram X-9 10spd drivetrain, and an Easton EA70 aluminum bar, stem and seatpost, and you’ve got yourself a top shelf rig. Rounding out this pretty package is a WTB Laser Disc Trail wheelset all adding up to a stiff, light all mountain beast. No more shying away from and hill or descent. The beginning of every great path starts with a Mission!
