The Sentinel Carbon GX sits right in the middle of our product line as a workhorse spec that gives you all the important parts you need on a carbon frameset at a great price. For suspension, you get a similar Fox DPX2 Performance rear shock found on our XO1 build kit as well as the always impressive Fox 36 with the new Grip damper. For the drivetrain, 12spd GX Eagle has a massive range (50-10 tooth) for getting you up super steep climbs. The build continues to punch above its weight class by offering 4 piston Code R brakes for superior stopping power and fade resistance, Stans Flow S1 comp complete wheelset, and our favorite 3C Maxxis Minion tires. We purposely built this spec so you didn't need to upgrade a single part on this bike, just set and forget.

Available Colours: Gunmetal Grey, Pinot Noir Red

Speed Balanced Geometry

SBG ensures the bike maintains low speed agility, front wheel traction, and proper rider weight balance while actually increasing confidence in steep terrain and at high speeds. With SBG, a slacker head tube angle is combined with a all new reduced offset fork standard, preventing the front wheel from being too far in front of the rider. This improves front to rear weight distribution on the bike, which is often out of balance on long and slack bikes. One of SBG's greatest benefits is that it creates a confident steering feel that adapts to wheel speed. More stability when going fast, more agility on technical slow speed maneuvering as well as improved traction, control and confidence for any skill level of rider.

GiddyUp 2.0HH Suspension

Take our successful GiddyUp suspension system, add one part increased pedaling efficiency, two parts wider sag range, and three parts increased small bump sensitivity, and you get GiddyUp 2.0HH. Incredible pedaling performance balanced with a superb neutral, comfortable and fun feel that we're known for.

We specifically tuned the suspension with a moderate amount of chain growth which is highest at the sag point and decreasing deeper into the travel. Because of this finely tuned wheel path, there is a notable increase in traction when climbing, without the rider noticing the chain growth fighting the suspension movement.

GiddyUp 2.0HH is extremely easy to setup and it provides excellent support throughout the entire stroke of the shock so you can use all your travel without worrying about bottom out. Designed to be active while climbing, rear shock climbing platforms are not necessary. The suspension remains free to smooth out the trail, improve traction and control without sacrificing efficiency. With GiddyUp 2.0HH you can focus on the trail, no remotes, levers or knobs. Just grab your bike and GiddyUp.
