We took everything we've learnt about building great handling, lightweight carbon hardtails... and put it into the Access C:62 Pro frame. Starting with our premium C:62 carbon, our engineers refined the rear end to make it shorter and stiffer, building in a Boost thru axle for good measure. The result is improved tracking and steering, even sharper acceleration and, combined with our Agile Ride Geometry (ARG), livelier handling all round. With a PressFit bottom bracket and integrated headset, the entire chassis is lighter than before, too. Slim seatstays and a 27.2mm seatpost help take some of the buzz out of the trail for greater comfort - good news if you like to ride not just hard, but long too. And we routed cables internally, partly to maintain the frame's good looks and partly so that you can be assured of long-lasting smooth gear shifting. There's even provision for a later upgrade to a Stealth dropper post.
