Searching for a trail bike that's beyond nimble in hard accelerations and rips up mountain climbs? Don't settle for a carbon compromise — Live Wire shreds the switchbacks with no limits — engineered to be our lightest-toughest 3AL/2.5V titanium hardtail frame — it's darn fast and crazy fun — just like the Tennessee trail it's named after. Setup as a 29er build, this is your bike for the dirt you ride...

Who Is This Hardtail For:
Performance focused riders looking for a scorching fast bike — where strength and efficiency count, but still has the mojo for sweet drops and steep berms.

What It Is:
A rock tough long-distance hardtail with a relaxed geometry and shorter stems for great body position and unbelievable responsiveness. The oversized 3AL/2.5V tubeset gives the lateral stiffness you demand and the saddle comfort you deserve. A hard cornering beast with a max tire width of 29 x 2.5" or 27.5 x 3.0", and thanks to the curved seat tube — you get the traction you need — just when you need it. We also added 38.1mm seat tube diameter for your favorite dropper post.
