Ever dreamt of standing on the top step of a cross-country mountain bike race podium? That is what the Altay is designed to help you reach. You can also use it for just going riding as well, and it will happily run around trail centers all day.
The Altay mountains are a range found in Central and East Asia, famed for their gold, it is where their name comes from, the Mongolian word for gold. It was therefore only natural that we named our full suspension mountain XC bikes after them. These bikes will deliver you a gold medal.
As you would expect from an XC whippet, this frameset runs 29” wheels and 110mm of suspension travel all built into a lightweight Toray T700 carbon fiber frame. To fit the 29” wheels, we are using a hub spacing of 148 x 12mm.
This might seem wide for a race frame, but it means you can fit a lightweight and stiff set of wheels to this frame. We do not want you wasting any watts, and that is why we have used a stiff bottom bracket shell that fits BB92. This frame is all about getting you where you need to be fast and in comfort. Stiffness and the 110mm of travel mean you can be both fast and comfortable at once.
The most important characteristic we wanted though was that it has to be affordable. No more having to compromise your rig. With the Altay, you can have a great frameset and a lot of change to build your dream race bike.
