Mission 1

The Mission 1 27.5 is a bike designed to unlock the secret world of All Mountain ripping. Do those steep, rocky, and root strewn descents have you second guessing your trail choice? No more. The Mission 1 27.5’s KnuckleBox suspension design drops the center of gravity low in the frame for better cornering and tracking and delivers 160mm of trail taming travel to tackle all of the big hits. 27.5” wheels give you better grip and roll over for a surefooted feel. Of course you’re not just riding down, you also have to go up, and for that the FOX Float CTD air rear shock provides you a solid pedaling platform for uphill efficiency. This, coupled with a Shimano drivetrain and Race Face crankset with single ring, makes for a simple yet effective set up. The result: you get to the top fresher, ready to send it down the other side for a whole lot more fun. Welcome to a new world.


  • All Mountain 160mm travel 6061-T6 weapons grade aluminum frame with KnuckleBox suspension is super stiff and ultra durable
  • Single-sided hardware on three main pivot points for easy bearing serviceability
  • FOX 32 Float CTD air front and CTD "LV" rear suspension will smooth out any trail
  • Shimano SLX Shadow rear derailleur delivers silent, accurate shifting
  • Race Face Ride 1x Crankset is practical and efficient
