Purpose-built to hit the precise sweet spot between lightweight cross country climbing prowess and technical precision, the Element is the best of both worlds and more. New-levels of climbing efficiency guarantees that oh-so-sweet feeling of riding someone off your wheel. Added levels of stability on fast descents and a pseudo-aggressive seat tube angle provides surprising levels of confidence on tight single track and hairy descents. Light. Stiff. Fast. Smooth. Precise. You’re now in your Element—always.

This bike is amazing. I have definitely done new PR‘s both climbing and descending on this bike on my local trails. I am a former XC racer that wanted a more capable bike descending without the weight penalty climbing and this fits the bill. Biggest knock is that it descends so well you could easily beef up the brakes and tires to handle more crud….but might slow you down on the climbs. Not a bad decision either way. Plus room for two water bottle cages!
