With its sculpted carbon front triangle the RS certainly looks the part – add Whyte OTO geometry, Sram/XT mix, the fantastic RockShox Pike and Cane Creek coil and you’ll understand why this multi-award winning model sets the pace.
S stands for Switch – the ability to fit 650b wheels with 2.8″ tyres and still have UK levels of mud clearance. You can switch them into your bike in the time it takes to go back to your car and change the Eagle cassette.
Maxxis 3C compound is peerless in the level of front end grip it provides. The 30mm wide rims create a stable bead platform for these tyres so you can push them right to the limit.
