The Stage MAX is intended for the rider looking to take part in any XC one day or multi-day racing event, without limiting the more playful trail side of mountain biking. A marathon bike on steroids, for trail riders that want to ride marathons.
The Stage MAX has increased rear travel and slacker geometry, perfect for riders who participate in marathon events, but spend the bulk of their time bombing around their local trails. The MAX frame has a more robust carbon layup with extra fibre reinforcing in key areas and 126mm rear travel. Matched up to a 140 mm fork, you have a playful and versatile bike at your disposal.
Our slack and long geometry allows for a shorter stem and wider bars to be fitted, maximising stability and technical handling while boosting rider confidence. This new twist on marathon geometry gives the bike maximum stability at speed, during cornering and on steep technical descents, yet climbs among the best in its class, thanks to the finely balanced leverage ratio and anti squat characteristics.
The +FIVE chain line is another improvement we offer you, which shifts the rear end of the frame 5mm towards the drive side and changes the chain line from 49mm to 44mm – something that, until now, has not changed since the days of 7 speed cassettes. Additionally this addresses the uneven rear wheel dish, improving wheel strength and stiffness. Simply put, the chain line on the 11th gear (easiest gear, largest cog) on a +FIVE frame is equivalent to the chain line on the 9th gear of a regular frame – reducing wear and improving shifting performance.
