When the original F-Si hit back in 2015, it changed the game. Pushed the limits. Changed peoples’ idea of what an XC hardtail could do. It’s even lighter – the lightest MTB frame we’ve ever made. Shorter Ai™ chainstays for more traction and kick on the climbs. Slacker head angle for even more OutFront™ control when things get dicey on descents. Improved stack and reach numbers for amore optimized rider position. Precise compliance tuning throughout the frame for more comfort, seated or standing, all while still having power transfer you need for full-gas efforts.

This is an excellent off-road bike at a very modest price considering it’s modern components and lightweight build. Check it out!
