Lightweight, Capable and Perfectly Balanced

The best trail bikes are neither whippy nor overbuilt. They are, in a word, balanced. We sweat the details—painstakingly developing the precise mix of resins, composite fibers, lay-orientation and frame shaping to create a chassis with the perfect blend of strength and stiffness.

We’ve also given the Trail 429 many of the same strength and stiffness-enhancing features that you’ll find on our gravity-oriented bikes, including a double-wishbone rear triangle, Super Boost Plus rear axle spacing, ultra-wide suspension linkages and burly bearing assemblies. With the Trail 429, we’ve upped the ante on downhill performance without any loss in versatility.


Tuned for the Trail

Dave Weagle’s dw-link™ design is renowned for providing great traction and downhill control without adding energy-sucking suspension bob or “squat”—that’s also why it’s the heart of the Trail 429.

We’ve paired that class-leading dw-link® suspension with custom-tuned Fox Float DPS (Dual Piston System) that give the Trail 429 120 millimeters of smooth and controlled rear suspension. The metric-sized Fox DPS shock features an extremely positive “firm” position that makes easy work of long fire-road climbs. To match the Trail 429's deep-feeling rear suspension, we’ve equipped each model with a 130mm Fox 34 suspension fork.
