Shift R3

New, upgraded and spicy, the 2017 Shift R3 levels up from the S3: 4-Bar Linkage frame, Rockshox rear shock, SR Raidon fork with remote lockout, sealed bearing hubs with thru-axles and new Shimano 365 disc brakes. Go into that corner hot, rip the downhill, and cruise the climb. The R3 cuts the flex to ensure precision steering, for a handling that is predictable but never boring. More confidence equals bigger thrills, as the R3's suspension travel smooths out the little bumps, without bottoming out on the big ones.
