Details

Blackthorn Carbon GX Eagle hits a sweet spot of incredible pedaling efficiency and downhill prowess for a well-balanced platform that's ready for all of your big trail outings. The stiff, durable carbon frame is designed around our Split Pivot suspension system, which offers excellent small-bump compliance yet pedals better than most other all-mountain bikes can. 140mm rear and 160mm front travel soak up drops, gaps, burly rock gardens, and all the other terrain you encounter. SRAM's GX Eagle group equips you with a wide enough gear range to climb anything you put your legs to, and the four-piston brakes let you dial down speed quickly enough to hit the perfect line. Blackthorn Carbon GX Eagle is a dream rig, whether you're sessioning jump lines or exploring rugged backcountry trails.
