The Roots frame is dedicated for going big and rough, the frame is designed for the Downhill Freeriders that hit hard. With 200mm of the progressive rear travel, the Roots will smash any rock garden you can throw at it, while being stable enough to pull that sick whip on an A-Line.
The design is well proven and is the perfect choice for anyone looking to custom build a sick rig. Roots can be run with either 27.5” or 26” wheels with the 150x12mm rear hub standard. The frame has a 73mm BB, ISCG-05 mount and tapered head tube for IS42/IS52 headsets.
During many months of testing the Roots has been run with both 180mm and 200mm forks and both felt great, the choice is yours.
