No mere steel hardtail, Breezer's Lightning 29er comes from one of the forefathers of mountain biking, Joe Breeze, and boasts all of his knowledge. With a frame made from light, smooth-riding chromoly steel, and a 100mm RockShox fork, the Lightning is ready to rip singletrack and shimmy through rock gardens. Bumpy or hardpack, the 29-inch WTB tubeless wheels and tires keep you rolling fast and furious down the trail. A Shimano SLX/XT drivetrain does too, with the light, fast shifting that you expect. Of course, if the trail gets a little too zesty you can always rely on Shimano's SLX disc brakes with their incredible modulation and stopping power. Oval Concepts components and a WTB saddle round out this trail machine, parts choices that are sure to keep you happy during long days on the trail.
