Long a rider’s favorite, the mason line’s history is one of innovation and forward-thinking. For 2016 we’re adding to its pedigree by outfitting it with 27.5 plus tires and boost hub spacing. This gives the bike more traction than you thought possible with only a negligible hit to rolling resistance. In short, this slack hardtail got even faster. The frame geometry has been kept relatively unchanged, it’s still a bike you can Manual through bumps and flick around the trail-although with three inch wide tires at low air pressures, you may not need to: this bike sticks like glue to the trail, opening up new lines we never thought possible. It climbs like the efficient hardtail it is, with a wide range 2×10 drivetrain putting power to the ground with incredible grip. When it’s time to descend, lower the dropper post and let out a howl as the 130mm FOX 34 float fork works together with the 27.5 plus rubber to absolutely gobble up the trail. For riders looking to push their riding and convention, the mason comp delivers insane traction and performance.
