After one ride on the Rhyme Expert 6Fattie/29, you'll never be merely "riding trail" again. It's a bold statement to make, but the increase in traction, control, and floatation that our 6Fattie Wheel/Tire System provides is nothing short of revolutionary. And then, of course, there's the rest of the bike.
To start, it lives by the philosophy that more tire volume results in more speed. It might be a claim that sounds flipped on its head, but one ride and it'll have you shouting this sentiment from the rooftops. Our 6Fattie Wheel/Tire System puts out more traction, more floatation, and better handling without sacrificing anything to efficiency on climbs. This system also allows you the opportunity to toggle between 29-inch wheels (not included) and 6Fattie wheels, allowing the ultimate in configuration options for the trail at hand. And with the philosophy of the design out of the way, it came time to solidify its place as a proper trail machine.
It features our FACT 9m carbon fiber for the bulk of the construction in order to provide an ultra-lightweight, strong, and stiff frame. The carbon molding process also allowed us to revolutionize how you carry your trail essentials with the revolutionary SWAT Door found at the down tube. This compartment will fit a tube, a tool, and pump without rattling or compromising the structural integrity of the frame.
And when you factor in a build spec that has SRAM's 12-speed GX Eagle one-by shifting, powerful Guide R hydraulic disc brakes, a FOX 34 Performance fork with 150mm of travel, and a whole host of women's-specific components, from the saddle to the custom-tuned RockShox Monarch RT3 shock, you have a bike that will have you never looking back—unless it's to see the girls eating your dust.
- FACT 9m carbon fiber Trail Chassis with Rhyme FSR M5 alloy rear end blends stiffness with light weight to form the pinnacle of efficiency, while fully enclosed cable routing and an integrated SWAT Door create exceptional handling and zero-hassle storage.
- The FOX 34 Performance fork features 150mm of plush travel to take on big hits and bumpy terrain with supreme confidence and efficiency.
- SRAM's 12-speed GX Eagle drivetrain, with a Truvativ Descendent crank, features an ultra-wide gear range that delivers climbing and descending efficiency in spades. On top of this, the one-by setup is notorious for being next to impossible to drop a chain with, plus it provides a significant weight savings in comparison to a standard two-by setup.
