The long-awaited Lurcher has caused more breathless anticipation than anything we've launched in the last couple of years. It's been delayed for various reasons, too dull to detail (but documented on several forums around the internet), but at last it's finally coming.
Effectively, our Scandal in carbon fibre, an all-round trail-tough, yet carbon-lightweight 29er, the Lurcher has the same geometry and Swap-Outs as the Scandal, but with the forgiving ride and weight-saving of carbon. Mixer Taper head tube and Shimano Press Fit bottom bracket make for a fat, stiff down tube for tight handling.
Smoothie Mixer standard means you can throw in a Slackset to kick the headset out to a more relaxed angle. The 31.6mm seat tube is dropper post compatible. The rear tyre clearance is huge. The chain stays are dialled for maximum tyre, chainring and weight distribution. This bike just hammers.
