Climb fast. Descend even faster. Welcome to your Element.
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.
Earth. Air. Fire. Water. Ride ’em all (well, maybe not fire).
What sets the Element apart
The perfectly balanced advantage
It’s light. It’s stiff. It climbs. It does everything you expect a good cross country bike to do. But then, its subtly aggressive geometry and lengthened wheelbase changes the game when descending and charging fast, rough, technical sections of singletrack.
Lightweight trail dominance
With 120mm of smooth, progressive travel, the Element is in a totally different league than every cross country bike that came before it. Progressive geometry means you can not only ride more trails up and down than ever—they’re now faster, too.
The comfort of competence
Soaking up aggressive sections of trail means more matches to burn as the day goes on. Ride further than ever in surprising levels of comfort. Keep cottonmouth at bay with plenty of room to carry two full-sized bottles. Ride more trails than ever—and do it comfortably.
"This is a new type of XC riding for me - and I'm loving it!"
It's the lightest, most agile, and capable bike I have ever ridden. It's been motivating me to go farther and faster on my favorite type of rugged backcountry rides that I used to leave my XC bike at home for. This is a new type of XC riding for me - and I'm loving it!
"The Element gives me a lot of confidence when it comes to racing and is without a doubt a huge advantage."
It is incredibly light and efficient but somehow rides like a trail bike, a combination that eliminates any weak points and allows to push on all sections of a race course. Outside of racing, I love the feeling of being way the hell out there! The Element is perfect for that, you can cover ground all day without holding anything back.
