9 point 7kg - Lightest trail bike on our planet.


Fanatic. We had a customer recently spec up a new Zion Carbon, a true weight weenie at heart and XC fan but looking at stepping into some of the bigger stuff. "I could have gone lighter, but I wanted a bike that I can ride all day long without any hassles"

Jaw dropping. This Zion has been built with a very moderate spec but has achieved an astonishing weight that most of the "other" XC bikes struggle to reach. The Zion is in its own category and it's all class. Lets not forget the Zion has 147mm/6" of travel in the rear and the frame is built to chew up and spit out the rough stuff and with the MTS you can switch out the travel to 127mm/5" if you feel like it. Is that like having your cake and eating it?

Versatility. "I'm an XC guy and didn't want to lose the flickability and quick handling of a steeper head angle. With the TALAS set in 110mm, the head angle is still steep enough to handle tight and tech terrain, but then can easily be set back to 150mm to handle all the rough chop. Overall I am pretty stoked"

Ultralight. Part of the total lack of weight of this bike is from the careful selection of MSC Ultralight components, by far some of the lightest and best looking parts you will ever see, combined with the low weight of the Zion Carbon frameset you have a perfect combination.

Amazing. Some serious bike hotness and not to mention truckloads of genius engineering.  Stiff carbon rocker, Ti hardware, 100% sealed bearings, integrated housing, beautiful uni-directional carbon layup and clean and simple decals. Check out some of the pics of the this build. Specs below.
