The Carbine SL frame is the lightest version of our 155mm travel 29er enduro-focused race machine. With a super light monocoque uni-directional carbon front and rear triangle, carbon top link and titanium hardware, you're getting a truly pro-level frame to which you can add your own selection of components.

This is the same frame used on our Pro-level and above bikes, saving weight over the normal modulus type used for our Foundation and Expert full builds.

The beautifully finished frame also includes integrated Boost 148x12mm dropouts, internal cable routing, internal seat tube routing for a dropper post and integrated down tube and chainstay flack guard protection.

The Carbine SL frame comes complete with a high-performance RockShox Super Deluxe RC3 shock.

Once you've built up your Carbine, it'll be one heck of an enduro monster.

Intense Carbine

Once considered an impossible feat, the Carbine effortlessly combines 29er speed with impeccable trail manners. Add in the long 155mm rear travel with 160mm up front and the Carbine can take big hits in its stride while maintaining its lively, playful handling.

This latest Carbine model has been completely redesigned from the ground up to create a truly enduro-focused trail geometry with longer reach, slacker head angle and increased wheelbase. Like the 27.5" Tracer, the Carbine takes advantage of our redeveloped and JS Tuned-suspension 'Enduro Link', which has been refined to deliver optimised leverage curve and axle path.

All this means the Carbine is most at home on rough, fast trails where you'll get the biggest benefit from the speed of the 29" wheels and the most fun out of the longer travel.

The Carbine is the go-to enduro race bike for our team riders, so if you're looking for flat-out speed on every stage, look no further than the Carbine.
