As the range-topper in the Limited Series, the LTD SL 2X has the high quality aluminium frame and high end components that are bound to inspire looks of envy amongst other riders, as well as providing the best performance out on the trail.
The detail reads like a frame building wish-list: mechanically formed 6061 aluminium tubes, double butting, IS brake mount on the chainstay, internal cable routing, PressFit bottom bracket and a tapered head tube. Everything is there to ensure that not a single watt of power is wasted and that every steering input is transferred to the trail - and all this is achieved with incredibly low weight. We even took comfort into account and incorporated a 27.2mm seat post. The LTD SL can handle any trail and, thanks to Agile Ride Geometry, remains agile and lively whether your opt for the 27.5 or 29 inch option.
Is this a performance trail bike... or a race bike? The extraordinary Fox Float 32 Performance suspension fork with 100mm travel and simple 3-way setting (Open, Medium, Firm) means you won't lose any time selecting the right suspension setup. To meet the needs of the most demanding rider we specced Shimano's new, crisp-shifting XT drivetrain and brake groupset with 26/36 chainset. The XT ShadowPlus rear mech with Direct Mount attachment delivers near-instantaneous shifts, while Shimano's I-Spec mount system cleans up the rider cockpit. High quality DT-Swiss technology provides the CSW MA 1.9/1.7 rims, laced to Shimano Deore hubs.
