If you were to draw your dream mountain bike, it might just look something like the new Alpine Trail Carbon. It’s big-wheeled. It’s got big travel. It’s beautiful. And it’s Made For Fun — wherever and however you ride.

• High modulus carbon fiber frame built around 29” wheels
• Progressive geometry taken from the popular 2021 Alpine Trail
• 63.5° head tube angle, 78° seat tube angle
• 430mm chainstays, 480mm reach (size L)
• Low-slung frame accepts long dropper seatposts
• 150mm rear, 160mm front suspension travel

The Alpine Trail Carbon is based on the popular Alpine Trail range, replicating the progressive 2021 geometry in an all-new high modulus carbon fiber frame. It is the strongest and stiffest Alpine Trail to date. All the better for corner-smashing, jump sending, trail ripping rides. 29” wheels combined with 150mm rear travel and 160mm up front, slack 63.5° head angle, steep 78° seat angle, short 430mm chainstays, and long reach (480mm on size L), plus a low-slung frame made for long dropper seatposts, make the Alpine Trail Carbon capable of pretty much anything. Leaving you to enjoy the ride. A replaceable downtube protector helps protect the bike’s good looks from the perils of flying rocks and other trail debris. There’s also an accessory mount under the top tube to help you carry
spares for those long days in the saddle. With the Alpine Trail Carbon, all-mountain has no limits. Let your imagination take you anywhere — tough climbs, fast singletrack, complicated tech, varying gradients, bike park, or even enduro racing. The bike carries itself with grace no matter what you throw at it.
