Cool. Any more details?
Probably to be available in 2023 with the current shortage.

Hidden-Shock-Design aka Bold (They aquired them)
Fully internal cable routing
For sure expensive

Seems like they ditch the "make it as light as possible" era and go ahead to a clean and modern design as roadbikes did.

Nice. I like the handlebar detail.
Let's wait a couple of hours for the full details.
I need a new bike, hopefully it won't be expensive. :lol:

It will be expensive for sure, on road prices had a big hike on 2021. I would expect nothing less on MTB remake.

I'm expecting an astronomic (relative) price increase. Especially on the volume models SLX/XT/GX/NX sort of level.

Or a massive downgrade in finishing kit.

Anyone nerdy enough to list some well known frame weights with shock and hardware for comparison? I mean how is the HMF frame doing weight wise?

HMX SL 120 Frame is 1870 with rear shock

I like the hidden shock, definitely will prolong the life of the seals

I don’t like the cockpit “integration”, what’s the point of running cables through the headset when the cables are exposed? Makes the stem fork interface unnecessary bulky.
