2021 RSD RS-291 - SPECIAL EDITION
Update: January 31st, 2021 - Specs & Price Change Notice
Due to the extensive lead times being offered by certain components manufacturers, the original specifications/build kits for this bike have been changed. So that we may be able to deliver complete bikes as scheduled, per our shipping updates, certain parts have been swapped out for those with shorter lead times. In each case, we have attempted to make substitutions that do not compromise the integrity of each build. Pricing has changed accordingly.
Important: Notwithstanding any change of specifications, pricing on all bikes will have to be adjusted to reflect the increases in the cost of manufacturing and shipping. This is unfortunate, but no manufacturer - large or small - will be unaffected by the strain on the global supply chain. We are doing our absolute best to keep our costs and timelines as close to original estimates as possible.
The price changes are effective immediately, and have been applied to all affected bikes, including those on pre-order.
The eternal debate in the mountain bike community about being “overbiked” versus “underbiked” – it’s legit and where you land usually depends on where you ride, and how hard you shred. For most riders, the bike they’re riding is enough – until it’s not. Consider this bike as trail insurance – to cover your ass when things get steep, gnarly and fast – and we mean all of the above.
On paper, that 63-degree head angle and 160mm-travel front end might appear to be overkill. But when the ride starts to push your limits, you’d rather focus on how to max out the fun factor than second-guess whether or not your bike is the right weapon for killing the game. That slack front end, and 320 mm BBH, are matched with a 75-degree seat tube angle, so you’re sat just right for all the climbing you’re gonna do to reach your bucket-list trails. And then it’s all downhill from there, as the saying goes – our first 29″-specific design feels so planted that your moves will feel more instinctual than intentional.
The RS-291 is our most aggressive hardtail yet, and if your rides are rarely chill and you’re always looking to push it a little further or faster, then you should think hard about joining this rogue squad, and grab yer helmet.
