Retrospec Ascent 27.5-inch Wheel Mountain Bike
Great all around mountain bike ready to hit the trails or your favorite coffee shop. Featuring a 6061 Alloy frame with a sloping top tube and hydroformed downtube for increased stiffness. 27.5" diameter tires roll easy over trail irregularities. 27 speed Shimano EZ fire shifting makes gear selection a breeze. The front suspension fork with 100mm of travel and a lock out feature helps to soak up the bumps while the disc brakes keep things under control.
Steep downhills require responsive and reliable brakes with superb stopping power. Cruise fast and decelerate faster with Ascent's mechanical disc brakes. And if you opt out of braking before a turn, this mountain bike's grippy tires give you the traction (and confidence) to take on any corner.
Sleek frame & fork
Turn heads before even hitting the trailhead with Ascent's sleek frame, stainless steel spokes and matte finish. This mostly alloy hardtail mountain bike is lightweight and easier to maintain. What's more, Ascent's stiff, threadless suspension fork absorbs impact, combats torsional flex, and holds lines in the rock garden. And if you're climbing or sprinting, easily flip the lockout lever to stop the suspension and conserve your energy for momentum.
Get up climbs and easily take on varying terrain whether dirt, gravel, or paved with 21 gear combinations. Plus, Ascent's Shimano Tourney derailleur with easy Rapidfire shifters offers quick, intuitive shifting at your fingertips.
