Product description

2,700 miles. 200,000 feet of climbing. Smooth gravel, rough forest roads, and singletrack all in the same day for weeks on end. This is the Tour Divide, and Cutthroat C X01 Eagle AXS is engineered to thrive on it. The lightweight carbon frameset is stiff where it matters for power transfer and our Class 5™ VRS provides compliance where comfort is the priority. Our drop-bar mountain bike geometry puts you in position to conquer all-day efforts on nearly any surface. Cutthroat comes with a variety of mounts for water and gear to help you haul everything you’ll need until the next opportunity for resupply. Rounding out the package is SRAM’s X01 Eagle AXS Eagle electronic drivetrain, an unparalleled riding experience with a gear range to get you over any mountain pass.
