Hey folks,
Thinking about investing in a new hardtail mtb... looking for something light, with sram shifting... 9kg range or lighter? Is that even possible? (not sure what is actually possible with mtbs....) Some googling shows up things like a ktm 29'er that is in the 8kg range... or the radon jealous?
I'm new to the mtb world, so recommendations, advice appreciated!

Marty

It is doable. Mine is 10kg with a 2kg frame. Even with that frame I can shave 1kg off with ease.

Start with a frame and build it up. You will need to use some fairly light parts but this does not mean unreliable just expensive.

Race Face Next SL chainset, XTR shifting parts 1x11 using a road cassette or SRAM XX1, a lauf fork, carbon frame, and extralite bar and stem. Selle Italia carbon saddle and woodman Carbo EL seatpost.

wheels could be carbon tubular with Carbon ti hubs using Dugast Ori tubeless tubular tyres. Or go with conventional tubeless rims and light weight tyre like conti race king race sports which can be run tubeless.

I have not added it all up but it could be very light.
