Developed with Top 20 EWS riders and the Enduro World Series in mind - The 161 features progressive geometry to descend as fast as possible, whilst reducing fatigue with a low effort climbing position. By reducing upper body stress on steep transitions, readiness and speed will increase during the timed stages.

Whilst working closely with racers to ensure it's everything they need to race at the highest level, they provided us with incredibly useful feedback; ranging from geometry to small (but important) details such as cable routing to clear race plates.
