Built for big days in the big mountains, the Trigger is pure, full-throttle descending mojo served up with a side of serious all-day pedalability. Its stiff carbon frame and aluminum swingarm ensure dialed control on fast descents, with suspension that you can flick into efficient Hustle Mode to devour climbs. Fox covers your suspension needs with a Float X EVOL shock cycling out 145mm of rear travel and a Float 34 150mm-travel fork soaking up the big hits as fast as you can find them. Toothy Maxxis Minion tires bite hard into loose trails, while WTB Frequency Race wheels hold their line through the chunder. SRAM gets you up the mountain fast with their extended-range, 12-speed Eagle X01 Eagle drivetrain and Descendant carbon crankset, and their Guide RS brakes bring everything to a controlled halt with incredible power and highly sought-after modulation. And, no trail bike is complete without the all-mountain performance edge offered by a RaceFace Turbine dropper post, routed internally with your other cables and hoses for an aesthetic as pure as the adrenaline coursing through in your veins.
