elephANT

As plus-sized bikes go the elephANT Trail Spec is in a class of its own. The 29+ tires allow you to pick a line going down and stick to it, especially when running the DT SWISS OPM OPL 120mm suspension fork. Like an elephant, it cares little about what’s in its way. Despite its hulking appearance, cornering is surprisingly light-footed and the large rubbers allow for high corner entry and exit speeds. In the hands of a capable rider it will give many downhill bikes a good run for their money.
