Agonist

XC speed meets trail versatility.

Overview

Race beyond the tapes

Born in the Alps, where cresting breathtaking ascents before navigating swooping singletrack is the way of life, the Agonist blurs the line between an endurance race bike and versatile trail machine.

Agonist 01

Stamina-stretching XC rides on the Agonist 01

The Agonist 01 sits on the versatile side of racey, making it perfect for the XC rider who longs for all-day adventures. With 110mm of plush APS endurance-tuned suspension and a lightweight 01 Premium Carbon frame, this bike is equally at home charging up endless ridgelines as it dropping down singletrack descents to civilization. Unlike the all-out, aggressive body position needed for World Cup XC racing, the Agonist comes with our Big Wheel Concept Endurance geometry, tuned for long-haul, off-road rides.
