Slack headtube more controlWhen combined with reduced-offset forks and longer reach the 65-degree headtube angle delivers a blend of high-speed stability confidence to attack on steep and challenging terrain and direct controlled steering that keep the Stoic fun and playful on pumps and jumps.
The Stoic’s low top tube prevents the frame from getting in the way of the shapes your pulling. Likewise short chainstays combine with the slack headtube to create a blend of stability and agility that’s its own flavor of awesome.
Combined with a slack headtube the longer reach makes it easy to distribute your weight evenly. You get better traction and body position in turns plus more stability over bumps and jumps. The longer reach also creates a less cramped cockpit that improves its climbing performance.

Universally understood. Universally liked. Tough simple and straightforward…just like the Stoic.
The Stoic is a trail bike through and through but we actually designed it to withstand the same punishing “Category 4” strength and impact testing to which we test our Enduro World Series race bike the Strive.
No-Hassle Cable Routing
Working on your bike shouldn’t require an engineering degree. No-hassle internal cable routing is just one of the many smart design features that makes the Stoic easy to maintain.
True Trail Performance
Each Stoic model can take a serious beating and dishes out legit performance on any caliber of trail. The fact that these bikes won’t bleed your bank account dry is simply a side benefit.
A Perfect Fit for Everyone
The Stoic gives every rider the same stellar handling no matter how short (down to 4’10”) or tall (up to 6’6”) they happen to be. We achieve that by tailoring wheelsizing tailored to frame size. Smaller frames all sport 27.5 wheels, which mesh well with smaller frame dimensions. Medium, Large, and XL frames wear 29ers hoops, which pair perfectly with larger frames.
