The Signal is for flat out speed.
It pedals like an XC bike, descends like an enduro bike, and captures the rawness of riding a hardtail on fast, flowy singletrack. Stand up, sprint, and ride it hard on the groomed trails at Llandegla and Glentress or take it to big mountains and let loose.
That low BB and long wheelbase gives a planted and stable feel through the corners and when tackling high speed descents. The low stack height leaves you with less of that ‘tall’ 29er feeling – you’ll feel like you’re 'in' the bike, not on the bike.
Big wheels roll faster. The 29" wheels can be paired with 2.2 to 2.6in tyres with clearance for winter conditions.
The Signal Steel rides beautifully – it’s got that distinctive steel feel to take the edge off the biggest hits while keeping stiffness where it counts so you can accelerate out of corners and track accurately through rocks and roots.

Why SX Eagle?
SRAM Eagle drivetrains are designed, engineered and manufactured to work as complete drivetrain systems. Its 1x drivetrain is built to be lightweight, strong and intuitive, with the gear range to ride on any terrain.
SX Eagle provides the same Eagle performance benefits as NX Eagle, but at a lower price point. The main differences stem from the choice of materials and finish options, but functionally SX is fully compatible with SRAMs Eagle groupset.
