Unbeatable SRAM X9 spec on our best selling full carbon XC frame. This build features a FULL 2x10 SRAM X9 groupset (including chainset), Reba RL forks, Avid Elixir CR brakes, On-One XC QR wheels and Maxxis Crossmark tyres.
And it comes in at only 23lbs too...
The Carbon Whippet is our top of the line, 1.2kg carbon XC race frame, and this spec is the best yet. Fully colour co-ordinated with SRAM X9 to match the frame details, it also looks the business too...
Designed with out and out cross country racing in mind the Whippet is our fastest and lightest frame taking the already proven, race winning, geometry of the Inbred and Scandal frames and bringing them bang up to date.
With replaceable Swap-Outs make the Whippet the most versatile Cross Country and UK trail frame that we have.
From Cross Country Racing to Singlespeeding the Whippet is the fastest, most responsive frame we've ever made.
More aggressive, stiffer Zero stack front end, stiffer multi axle compatible BB92 bottom bracket, gear or singlespeed 'Swap-Out' dropouts. All connected with the stiffest, lightest carbon fibre tubeset we could design. Add high value, high velocity Shimano kit and we had to leave off the custom build tick box marked 'excuses'.
