Buddha

Cross-Country/Trail/Snow

100mm Front

If true enlightenment is what you seek, look no further than the Buddha. You won't have to meditate under a tree for 49 days, simply pedal away into the wilds to awaken new senses and liberate yourself from the drudgery of the same old fat tire thing.


The carbon fiber Buddha frame is very much like our Enlightenment hardtails in that it is built to achieve supreme lightness while also being tough enough for the rigors of mountain biking in rugged terrain. Go ahead. Seek the end of the world if you dare. Maybe you'll find nirvana. Just know that the Buddha is ready to join you for the trip.


Since the Buddha is intended to tackle any type of trail conditions known on this earth, it employs a hassle-free, fully internal routing system to shield your hoses and cables from the elements, and a tapered head tube ensures strength and stability for your steering system. The Buddha accepts a 34.9mm clamp-on front derailleur mount, a 27.2mm seatpost, and a 12x197mm thru-axle rear hub. Complete bikes are available with Shimano XT and XTR as well as SRAM XO1 single chainring build options. The frameset comes with a Cane Creek 1-1/8 - 1-1/2" semi-integrated headset and a Buddha 12x197mm tool-free thru-axle. It is recommended for use with the Buddha rigid fork or a 100mm front suspension fork.
