Let Timberjack SLX 29 be your guide to good times on the trail. Find confidence in the 130mm suspension fork and dropper post and fun in the short chainstays (adjustable thanks to our Alternator dropout system). The versatility of Timberjack’s cargo mounts and dual wheel size compatibility adds a new dimension to the riding experience, and Shimano’s SLX groupset equals effortless shifting. Put it all together, and you’ve got a 29" trail hardtail that’s the perfect platform for all of your off-road exploits.

Plus-size rims and tires

Wider than standard yet narrower than fat, plus-size rims and tires hit the sweet spot in grip, stability, and speed, giving you more confidence on technical terrain. Compared to a standard tire you’ll feel grip in places you wouldn’t expect thanks to a bigger contact patch and greater rollover clearance. More air volume allows lower tire pressures which softens bumps and increases float on sand or snow. Whether you’re a novice or an expert, the benefits of plus-size tires and rims will amplify your mountain biking fun.

Dropper posts

A dropper seatpost allows you to quickly lower and raise your seat to give you an ideal riding position. Dropping your seat creates a lower center of gravity for better control and maneuverability on steep descents, while raising it puts you at normal riding height for efficient pedaling.

Construction can include either hydraulic- or cable-actuated systems and the post’s travel can either be infinitely adjustable or stopped at set intervals, depending on the model.

Dropper seatposts come in standard lengths and diameters and vary by the amount of travel.
