The Rider

Cross country mountain bikers looking for the fastest way around their local trail, or XC racers that thrive on going fast.

The Bike

The MXZ is the go to machine when the singletrack is calling your name. Light, nimble, and fast, the MXZ rolls on 29" wheels to take you up, over, and through anything in your path.

The Tech

  • The MXZ is constructed using our highest grade 800K high-modulus carbon fiber for light weight and strength. Kestrel's 800K carbon uses inner polyurethane molds in high-stress areas such as the BB shell and head tube to minimize wrinkles in the carbon layers for greater compaction, resulting in the lightest and highest performing frame possible.
  • XC inspired geometry optimizes rider performance and control and the tapered 1 1/8""-1 1/2"" head tube enhances lateral stiffness for excellent steering precision.
  • Geometry optimized for 100mm front suspension forks
  • PF30 bottom bracket maximizes frame stiffness at the crank.
  • Oversized and shaped downtube increases stiffness at key areas to optimize power transfer
  • Engineered seat stays improve ride quality by reducing vibration from the rear end of the bike
  • Asymmetrically shaped chain stays are designed to improve lateral stiffness and power transfer.
  • Each frame size has unique tube lengths, diameters, shapes, and carbon layups to produce the best possible ride quality for every size rider.
  • Shimano’s Deore XT M-8000 1x drivetrain offers unmatched performance and longevity
  • RockShox SID World Cup features a carbon crown and steerer for the lightest, highest performing XC fork on the planet
  • Deore XT hydraulic disc brakes with IceTech rotors provide optimal power when needed
