The Smuggler takes the 29er in a new direction with a short travel platform that isn’t short on versatility and has critics calling it one of the top mountain bikes of 2016. Aggressive geometry with a slack 67.5 head angle and roomy cockpit let you push the bike hard while the 29 wheels smooth out rough terrain. The short 435mm chainstay and 115mm of progressive suspension keep the bike agile, responsive and playful for maximum fun on whatever trail you choose.
