Product Details

The Ace X-Lite is the lightest full suspension frame on the market at just 4.8 lbs. (size small including rear shock) - full bike, race ready at just - 22.50 lbs.
Proven modified "swing link" design delivers a full 3.00" of active travel.
"Linear Link" bottom bracket pivot design provides for a fully active suspension design with no chain pull or pedal kick back during braking - it's super smooth shifting and braking all the time.
Stratigic "Y" Link placement in conjunction with the FOX Float RP3 with Pro Pedal shock eliminates all pedal induced "bobbing" - giving you maximum power output with each pedal stroke.
Available with FOX Float RP23.
Each frame is hand built with custom gauge cold worked, stress relieved, seamless butted aerospace grade titanium matted with a thin wrap of carbon fiber composite.
Carbon fiber wrapped titanium tubing is placed strategically throughout the frame to eliminate unwanted lateral flex while still providing for a super smooth ride.
6/4 Titanium bolts throughout.
Cartridge bearings placed throughout provide for smooth suspension travel.
6061 - T6 aluminum rear section provides for maximum stiffness and precise traction control.
Precision CNC machined swing-arm pivots and oversized seat and chainstays eliminates unwanted frame flex.
CNC machined I.S. disc mounts come stock.
CNC machined 6061-T6 dropouts come stock with a replaceable hanger.
Finished with a super clean brushed finish.
