These may be the most affordable 29'ers in our stable, but there's nothing entry-level about the performance of these bikes. Best-in-Class performance and Big Hoops doesn't have to mean Big Bucks and the Durango proves it. Durango frame design The Durango frame features a sloping top tube that optimizes stand-over clearance while adding great looks at the same time. The over-sized down tube and head tube to offer plenty of strength, stiffness, and fork crown clearance. Pedaling platform The aluminum frame on the Durango is beefed up to include a larger 34.9mm seat tube, which allows us to spec an over-sized 31.6mm seat post. The larger diameter post flexes less, providing a firmer pedaling platform. Zero Stack internal headset Durangos feature a zero stack internal headset that places both the cups and bearings inside the head tube instead of outside. This reduces the total stack height (including the head tube), which is especially beneficial on big wheeled bikes. The larger diameter head tube also provides a larger weld interface at the critical head/top/down tube junction. Top tube cable routing Running the cables up under the top tube keeps cables and housing out of the muck for more precise and reliable shifting performance. Dual water bottle mounts Every Durango offers two water bottle mounts located inside the main frame. This provides excellent hydration capacity in an easily accessible position. Replaceable derailleur hanger Because it's much easier and much less expensive to replace a derailleur hanger than it is to repair or replace a frame, every Durango frame offers a replaceable derailleur hanger designed to yield in a crash before the frame does.

THREE VARIABLE OPTIMIZED. 1. INSTANT CENTER With the 3VO system's unique virtual pivot characteristics, we're able to combine the efficiency of a hardtail with the proper support of precisely-controlled active suspension. This is how every full-suspension bike should ride. 2. AXLE PATH A rear wheel that stays planted while charging through rough terrain is crucial to providing an intimate connection with the trail. 3VO's initial rearward axle path allows the bike to be supple on small bumps and square edge hits while its tightly tuned relationship with the system's leverage ratio keeps the suspension highly reactive even while pedaling. 3. LEVERAGE RATIO Imagine having two bikes in one, that's essentially what we've got with 3VO. The tuned multi-phase leverage ratio with initial rising rate provides an unparalleled pedaling platform while remaining keenly adept at sustaining repeated bumps without holdup. Up to just beyond the sag point, the system employs a slight rising rate. Some designs claim an initial falling rate with high initial leverage improves sensitivity and responsiveness, but these claims seem more driven by a need to market a deficiency than by any genuine benefit. Why? Because up until the sag point of the bike, sensitivity and responsiveness are primarily felt when the suspension is able to extend, not compress. - Triple-butted 6061 aluminum - 130mm travel 3VO suspension - Enduro Max sealed bearing pivots - Fox Float DPS Performance Series EVOL shock, 3-position compression - Fox 34 Rhythm Series Float 29" w/ sweep adjust compression & lock-out - Stan's No Tubes Flow D 29" rims, Shimano MT410 15x110mm front & 12x148mm rear hubs - Shimano Deore, 12-speed - Shimano MT420 4-piston brakes
