Sortie 2 29"

You’re looking for the perfect rig to go slay some singletrack and it looks like you just found it. The KnuckleBox equipped Sortie Two 29 is a ripping all-around 125mm full suspension XC/Trail machine built of weapons grade 6061-T6 aluminum alloy. The formed and butted tubing put strength where you need it most, and saves the weight where you don’t. The tapered head tube and 142×12 rear through axle add crucial stiffness to keep the bike tracking through every turn, and the FOX Float CTD suspension smooth’s out the rough edges. A shimano drivetrain with XT derailleur really spices things up and a Fox 32 Float CTD 29 Air fork gives you all you need to keep the ride smooth and flowy. Set everything in motion on 29” wheels, and it looks like you’ve got a winner.


  • Hand built 125mm full suspension 6061-T6 weapons grade aluminum frame is lightweight and stiff
  • Tapered head tube, hydroformed and butted tubes, and under arch seat stay bridge optimize strength to weight
  • KnuckleBox Technology with FOX CTD rear shock delivers flawless suspension performance
  • Fox Float CTD 29" Air 130mm fork absorbs rough terrain with ease
  • Shimano XT/SLX 10-speed drivetrain delivers great function at a reasonable price
