With 208mm of travel, 29" wheels, and flawless downhill geometry the M29 is our flagship bike, and it's a bike that's built for speed in the roughest and most brutal environments.

Our M-Series of downhill bikes have a history and race heritage that is unrivaled. It is an unbroken chain of evolution, from the original M1 back in 1994 right through to our current offering…the M29. This latest incarnation is the culmination of over 25 years of development, testing, tweaking, honing, and perfecting. The M-Series has moved with the times and we are confident to say that the M29 is the best downhill bike we have ever made.

Big 29" wheels help to carry huge amounts of speed and momentum and flatten terrain, so it was an easy choice for us. But of course, the beating heart of any bike is the frame. With the M29 we've used a very specific carbon lay-up to create a frame that is both stiff and strong, but that also has 'give' in all the right places. What this means is that you get a bike that allows you to take razor-sharp lines on the track, without getting beaten up or having a harsh ride, which is hugely important for a downhill bike. We've also concentrated on getting the contact patch of the large 29" front wheel just right to give you the perfect combination of grip and handling. You get amazing cornering, straight-line speed, accuracy, and precision.
