Carbon hardtails; those two words put together conjure up images of lung-searing climbs on bikes so light they almost disappear beneath you. While weight is important, so is ride quality. That's why every one of our FLC frames is built using T700 High-Modulus carbon fiber featuring M2X Megamax BB shell technology with a 12mm rear thru-axle. They're incredibly light, yet balanced, stiff and agile. Pick either the versatile, fast-accelerating Flightline Carbon 27.5" or smooth-rolling Flightline Carbon 29" (w/ Boost specs for 2018) for your KOM-bagging XC weapon of choice.
