The RS uses the same highly developed frame as the Works bike which our team race on. The parts are picked to make the most of this frame – from RockShox suspension to the brand new Eagle GX groupset, the RS is everything a modern long travel bike should be. This bike is ready for anything you want to throw at it, from hard-core trail riding to EWS Enduro racing. With its clever open front triangle design it is possible to fit various option of rear shock including coil shocks but still carry a full size water bottle. The G-170 has extra width built into the rear chainstays to allow the rider to fully exploit the future developments in wide high volume tyres but maintain mud clearance.
