The brand new Strega was created to satisfy the hard-charging rider who lives for gravity-fueled runs. With 170mm of VPP suspension, a slack 65-degree head angle, and 27.5-inch wheels, it offers a plush ride coupled with muscled agility for sight-blurring blazes down big, technical descents. The geometry creates more room in the cockpit while shortening the rear end, and the steeper seat tube angle tames uphill battles on rangy adventures. The "S" build steps-up performance with a RockShox Lyrik RC fork, Sram Code R brakes, and SRAM GX 12-speed transmission. The Strega is designed to push the envelope of how DH a bike can get while still remaining usable on most trails.
The Strega features a lower-link mounted shock configuration. The shock rate is almost completely linear—which means feather-light small bump sensitivity right off the bat, a supportive midstroke and overall progression that you'd normally only experience on a DH bike.
The geometry is long and low to ensure maximum stability and confidence on absolutely everything.
The whole package is crowned with subtle yet essential details. Bolt-on downtube protectors and shuttle guards act as a helmet for your frame—a replaceable front line against abuse. An integrated shock fender has also been added to keep crud out of the suspension.
