NEW Hydroformed frame+ Tapered Steerer/Headtubes
Motobecane's new hydroformed aluminum frame is so well-designed and engineered by Kinesis that some customers have said it will make most folks forget about Lindsay Lohan or any of Americas top models, past, present or future. Others have suggested it would be a survivor of anything Jeff Probst could ever think up. We say it's kind of like Angelina Jolie in Tomb Raider, beautiful and tough.

Proven Shimano 30 Speed Dyna-SYS Drivetrain
Shimano's next-generation Dyna-Sys drivetrain brings with it the legendary quality, durability and performance Shimano is known for, all packaged to meet the ever-evolving demands of today’s riders.

Dyna-Sys brings together the rider, the bike and the trail. Intuitive gear combinations account for how riders deliver power through the drivetrain; optimized 32-tooth Primary Driving Gear even the roughest, rockiest, muddiest trails can’t shake Shimano’s most stable off-road drivetrain to date.

Dyna-Sys is a comprehensive redesign made up of a multitude of thoughtful details, features and revisions that together add up to a world beating, trail conquering ride.

COMPETITION READY
The 30 Speed 2017 Fantom29 Elite is specified with competition-ready components and has geometry based on the FLY Team XC Race Bike of the Year. Please compare this bike directly against any other manufacturers $2,200+ 29er hardtail on the market. Their bikes are heavier or not as well equipped.

Extremely capable
with long travel RockShox Recon WITH External rebound and TurnKey Remote lockout. The Fantom29 Elite adds to those race winning specs; a Shimano crank and External BB, CaneCreek Sealed bearing headset, sweet shifting Shimano DynaSys XT rear derailleur with WTB Disc Wheelset and truly amazing SRAM Guide Hydraulic Disc Brake system.

SRAM Guide Hydraulic Disc Brakes have been rated by magazine reviews as one of the best - Way better than any mechanical system and at the top level of the most expensive hydraulic systems.

LIGHT WEIGHT
This bike is lighter than most any other bike in its price range AND has much higher level parts.

SWEET HANDLING
Motobecane USA has really dialed in a race-proven geometry into this phenomenal ride. The handling is very responsive and yet stable. Singletrack and switchbacks are all handled with ease. Slow speed and high speed, technical and flat-out hammering, you will go faster because this bike is so darn light and capable.

How Can We Sell At This Price?
We sell Factory Direct so you pay a price close to what a local dealer would pay at wholesale cost for a comparably equipped bike. Thus, you get a better equipped bike for hundreds less - often saving up to 60% off List prices. The only thing you have to do is a bit of tuning and assembly.
