Are you the type to spend your season lapping the gnarliest trails at the bike park, hunting for pirate trails, and hitting the local enduro races' If your answer is yes, then you know how challenging it can be to find a bike that keeps up with these kinds of downhill demands, yet remains capable for long days in the saddle when you need to get up to get down. That's where the SB150 comes in. A race-bred machine, the SB150's sole purpose is to get you down the mountain as fast as possible, having proven itself a winner at the highest levels of enduro racing.

Since then, the SB150 has found itself atop countless podiums at local enduro series as well as the flagship EWS. The fact is, 29ers simply roll faster and don't get hung up as easily on obstacles, making them a stellar choice for covering ground quickly on rugged terrain. Of course, all of ...
