THT (Trail Hard Tail) – Who would have guessed that a bike we designed over 10 years ago, would stand the test of time? The TRT's roots run deep, based on the original Ridge frame, we’ve updated a classic and have brought it into the next century. TRT remains true to its heritage with its long front center and short rear end, which makes it both stable at speed and maneuverable when it gets tight.

Gone are the heavy straight gauged tubes, replaced by modern light weight butted tubes, which have removed over a pound of heft. Revised CNC’d upper and lower yokes now grace the rear end as well as an updated MDS Modular Dropout System, which will accommodate 10 x 135 as well as 12 x 142 spacing. Other updates include a revised 1.5 headtube and ISCG 05 mount.
