The Stereo 170 SL 29 grabs the big-travel suspension rule book, rips it up and throws it off the nearest available cliff. Newmen Evolution wheels shod with Schwalbe's new Magic Mary and Big Betty SuperTrail 2.4in tyres - and powered by Shimano's ultra-slick 1x12 gears - make light work of any trail, up or down. Powerful Shimano XT hydraulic disc brakes help you keep your speed in check. And a precise Fox 38 Factory fork, Float X2 Factory shock and Transfer Factory dropper post mean you can tame the rowdiest of trails.
Frame and equipment
Big wheels, big travel: it's a design conundrum that's defeated many. But not us. The Stereo 170 29's frame is based on our proven four bar suspension design and Agile Trail Geometry, for superb suspension performance and dependable handling. The short linkage and covered bearings contribute to its precision and low maintenance requirements. And hydroformed tubes and internally routed cables mean that it looks as good as it rides. It'll redefine your expectations of what a big travel, big wheeled bike can do.

The advantages of 29 inch tires
29 inch is THE trend of the last few years, which was able to assert itself completely. Initially viewed critically by mountain bike purists and equipped with some teething troubles, the bike industry has recognized the trend and made it the new standard through continuous improvements. The advantage of the 29" tyres is the enormous running smoothness, which brings great advantages and saves power on long tours as well as uphill and downhill. Obstacles are easier to overcome due to the larger circumference of the wheels, and a greater distance is covered by turning the bottom bracket. By improvements and adjustments in the frame construction and the component selection, initial problems with the agility in the Trail and the optics of smaller frames were optimally balanced. Whether fully or hardtail, a 29 will take you far away.
