Race beyond the tapes
In ancient Greece, ‘Agon’ was the belief that anything can be achieved through effort, healthy rivalry and noble competition. An Agonist pits force against force; competitor against rival and athlete against nature, in fierce competition, to achieve an ultimate goal.
For riders who charge up fast, epic climbs and over traverses – but also want to have serious fun on the long descent back to civilization – we created the Agonist. Harmonizing two opposing capabilities, like the agonist and antagonist muscle groups, to work toward one purpose.
The Agonist demands as much of itself as you do, and together…you are unstoppable.
Big Wheel Concept (BWC) is our solution for confident rollover and quick cornering. BWC maximizes the benefits of 29” wheels to deliver playful, nimble handling while its progressive geometry, optimized cockpit design and a low bottom bracket with short chainstays provide excellent trail manners, traction, and control. Generous top tube length, a short stem, and wide bars balance the rider in a dynamic yet confident position so you get secure handling without sacrificing the speed you love.
APS – Advanced Pivot System
Smooth is fast. The best suspension designs provide controland confidence so you can ride without hesitation. We optimizeour Advanced Pivot System (APS) for pedaling efficiency and smooth operation on each of our full-suspension mountain bikes to handle the demands of the terrain the bike is intended for.
Freedom to think outside the box, tons of carbon manufacturing expertise and meticulous attention to detail enables us to develop carbon frames that push the limit in terms of stiffness, weight and aggressive tube shapes.
We increase the durability and performance of our frames by ensuringthat cables and parts are safe from dirt and impact. The ports and paths of the Agonist’s internal cable routing, an integrated mud flap on the lower link, downtube protectors, and the groundbreaking internal lockout cable routing (Hidden Shock Activation) all come from the freedom and encouragement that our engineers have – to pursue excellence.
