Built from the ground up to be the best value bike in its class, the Battle Sport 27.5 is great for a beginner first starting to hit the local trails, or any commuter who wants a bike to ride anywhere. A tough as nails ultra light 6061 alloy frame sets the stage for an alloy front suspension fork, alloy wheels, alloy stem, alloy seatpost, etc. Since almost all parts of the bike are constructed from aluminum, the bike is crazy light and easy to maneuver (not to mention rust resistant!). A full 21 speed Shimano drivetrain makes your casual weekend ride enjoyable even when the terrain involves hills, and the tires are capable on both road and off-road. With 27.5 wheels, the Battle Sport has even more impressive handling on trails and a smoother faster ride on roads than ever before. Geometry is tuned in such a way that even the smallest of riders can handle the bike comfortably. Built for the enthusiast who knows what trails he/she already rides, or the first time rider, the Battle Sport is a perfect ride-around-anywhere bike.
