Trail Testing: Haro FLC 29 Pro

The FLC 29 Pro is a brand new model for 2013. Haro has designed it to be a “high-performance, value-packed, no-compromises trail machine.”

The FLC’s carbon frame features a tapered headtube and internal routing for the derailleur cables.

The RockShox SID fork features their PushLoc remote lever to switch between open and locked out damping options.

The top-tier Pro model features a Shimano XT drivetrain featuring the new Shadow Plus rear derailleur. While we originally thought these derailleurs would be most useful on full suspension all-mountain bikes, they have also proved to be great on cross country hardtails which can transfer quite a bit of energy to the drivetrain through rough sections.

Shimano XT brakes handle the stopping duties.
