Rock Hound is a mountain bike that is built to go fast. Hard tail bikes maneuver more easily around rugged terrain and climb uphill faster due to their light weight.
"We designed the geometry to push your weight forward on climbs while keeping you back from the front wheel on decents. Our 73mm wide bottom bracket shell and custom chainstays give you lots of clearance and great pedaling efficiency. We gusseted the head tube for both strength and fork clearance. The result is excellent torsion rigidity for excellent climbing and confident descending.
Designed for today’s components. Thanks to the 44mm head tube, the Rock Hound fits both tapered and 1 1/8″ suspension forks. It’s modular dropouts let you mount either quick release or through axle hubs just by switching out the dropout inserts. The insert system also gives you a reliable but replaceable derailleur hanger. You can now add a dropper 31.6mm seatpost as well."
