Description

Condition:

This Cortex is a lightly used ex-display bike with a scratch on the forks and a chip on the DS seatstay. See the photos.

Fast and agile, Cortex is for epic days over mixed terrain. It comes alive on long technical descents with 120 mm rear travel, big wheels and a stiff responsive frame.

With bang up to date geometry, Cortex is confidence inspiring with a playful character. Stand up and mash on the pedals out of turns, manual sections of trail and pop off tree stumps, rocks and roots. Smash out short and loose technical climbs, flat out descents and tight techy singletrack sections. The harder you push the bigger you grin.

Geometry and Sizing

Sizing

It is important to get the right size bike, if the bike fits it will be faster, more comfortable, and easier to handle. You can also take into consideration the standover height to ensure you pick a bike that will be a good fit. If you measure your inside leg and ensure there is a minimum of an inch from the top tube to your crotch this will give you enough seat post adjustment to find your optimum saddle height. Generally we recommend:
Small
Riders between 5ft 2in and 5ft 7in
Medium
Riders between 5ft 6in and 5ft 10in
Large
Riders between 5ft 9in and 6ft 2in
X-Large
