The Hook delivers a pure and simple mountain bike experience, reflecting the evolution of the hardtail: its light, responsive, and just plain fun to ride. This starts with the frame’s slack geometry. Long and low, this bike is worlds apart from hardtails of the past. It maintains the efficient power transfer and precision of cross-country hardtails, but it’s made for ripping. Short chainstays and a low bottom bracket make it a blast to ride, especially while descending and cornering. Outfitted with a plush five inch fork, single ring drivetrain, 27.5” wheels, and wide handlebars, it’s a modern take on the timeless mountain bike. As a hassle-free intro bike or a reminder of simpler days, the Hook doesn’t disappoint.
