When you spend hours in the saddle getting to a jaw-dropping descent, your bike should 100 percent rip. Those are the days for the Release 29 3. This aluminum trail bike is built on the same 130mm travel Level Link suspension platform as its smaller-wheeled siblings, the Release and Catch. We’ve adjusted the geometry for 29-inch wheels while keeping the same playful attitude of all our Level Link bikes. A Shimano XT drivetrain paired with Shimano XT cranks provides crisp shifts. The Fox Performance Float DPX2 rear shock offers improved performance on the most aggressive descents plus a greater compression adjustment range. For truly hairy descents, the 140mm travel Fox 34 Performance fork and Shimano XT brakes keep you laser-focused.
