If you are looking to buy a hardtail XC racer that will demand no compromises, then the Exceed CF SL 8.0 Pro Race will be an option that is hard to ignore. Using a lightweight and durable carbon frame with an aggressive geometry designed around the needs of 29ers, the Exceed CF SL 8.0 Pro Race comes equipped with the Rock Shox SID RLC suspension fork with Boost spacing and 100 mm travel to eat up the rough patches and ensure the tire traction so you can keep your momentum. Including the SRAM X01 Eagle 12-speed drivetrain gives you the gear ratio and reliability to help you withstand any XC race without having to worry about mechanical DNFs. Similarly, the SRAM Level TLM brakes provide the necessary control over seriously technical courses, but are easy to maintain with their Bleeding Edge technology. The nice and light DT Swiss XRC 1200 carbon wheels with 25 mm inner rim width are tons of fun to flick around and also provide serious air volume for the Maxxis IKON 2.2 tubeless-ready tires so that you will enjoy loads of traction and increased comfort for all your training and racing. The agile handling of the Exceed CF SL 8.0 Pro Race belies its stable ride while the responsiveness will result in rapid-fire accelerations. Get ready to see your climbing times tumble.
