Raleigh's Skarn Expert is ready for XC domination. With a light aluminum/carbon frame adorned with a Fox Float shock and paired with a Fox 32 fork, each providing 100mm of travel, this racer's delight stalks podiums and pounces right when it matters. With that much balanced, plush suspension smoothing out the trails, it's hard to believe it could get any better, but the Skarn's got big 29-inch Weinmann wheels wrapped in Clement tires to help you go even faster with even more control. Okay, so the legendary speed's great, but you'll need to slow it down to human speeds at some point, so the Skarn's got super-reliable Shimano disc brakes to modulate your gnar. Top this storied bike off with a host of Raleigh components for durability, and you've got a rig ready to rip towards finish lines and ascend podiums.
