The all new RC627 redefines what a performance hardtail is capable of breaking into tech-gnar and enduro territory usually reserved for full sus rigs. From full gas trail centre to fully committed big adventure days and everything in-between the RC627 can handle it all.
A short tucked in rear keeps it playful when you need to manual, pop and play whilst it's supreme stability comes from a longer than average front centre and reach. Out front a slack 65 head angle gives you all the confidence you'll need descending and a steeper- shorter seat tube lets you weight the front on steep tech' climbs and create more room in the cockpit for longer travel droppers.
Dedicated to 27.5" tyres the 627 isn't fussed whether it's a whippet thin 2.2” or a diesel gripping 2.8" tyre there's clearance for all. This versatility is the bikes trump card plus you can run single speed if thats your thing or tweak its unique Slideout system to adjust character and clearance.
So whats new then? Stick kettle on and take a look…
