The Dial is designed for riding cross-country trails without compromise. It gives more confidence than a gravel bike and a more direct feel than a trail bike. The Dial's geometry is race-tuned and the 69 degree head angle, steep seat-tube and low stack height all work together to optimise climbing performance and direct, fast steering.
We’ve used lightweight 6066 aluminium to build the Dial into a truly lightweight bike without compromising on strength or performance. A flattened top tube provides lateral stiffness for maximum pedalling efficiency and cornering precision, whilst providing a degree of vertical compliance for a more forgiving ride over distance.
Quick out the blocks with its low frame weight, lightweight XC-specific wheelset and fast tyres, the Dial provides instant acceleration and with 100mm of travel up front, carries its speed well over rough terrain. The 430mm chainstays are compact for agile cornering, without being so short that you lose power on the climbs. It's a ride that makes is perfect for long days out where you want more comfort and control than a gravel bike or to die flat out on your local leg-tester.
