SHAPED BY RACING
Shaped by everything we've learned from 40 years of racing, the all-new Chisel is a purebread XC race machine. It's the highest-performing, most capable aluminum XC bike available. Turns out carbon isn't the only way to the podium after all.
Racing Weight and Tuned to Win
It’s no secret that XC races are won and lost on the climbs. That’s why we put the Chisel on a serious diet. Utilizing cutting edge D’Aluisio Smartweld technology (DSW) and space-age M5aluminum, this frame delivers one of the lightest alloy hardtails on the trail. We’re talking carbon light.
DSW and hydroformed tube shaping allow our engineers to create a perfectly balanced ride.That means you can drop the hammer and get instant power transfer and acceleration, rail through corners with absolute precision, hold your line when things get rowdy, and ride with less fatigue from trail chatter.
READY TO RUMBLE
XC race courses get more technical every season, which is why we took the progressive, trail-taming geometry we pioneered with the Epic Hardtail and applied it to the Chisel. The result is a confident, yet nimble, ride with incredible downhill stability at speed with no sacrifice to climbing or steering performance.
FULL GAS, FULL CONFIDENCE
Inspired by the game-changing Epic Hardtail, the Chisel has a slack 68-degree head tube, lower bottom bracket, increased reach, shorter chainstays, and a reduced fork offset. It’s a winning combination you won’t find in any other aluminum XC hardtail.
