Question: what do you call a trail-slaying beast with a hunger for rocks, roots, dirt and speed? Answer: Raleigh's Skarn Pro. A light aluminum/carbon frame adorned with a Fox Performance Elite shock and paired with a Fox 32 Float Performance fork delivers 100mm of plush travel. With that much balanced, plush suspension smoothing out the trails, it's hard to believe it could get any better, but the Skarn has big 29-inch wheels wrapped in Clement tires to help you go even faster with even more control. Okay, so the legendary speed's great, but you'll need to slow it down to human speeds at some point, so the Skarn's got super-reliable Shimano XT disc brakes to modulate your gnar. And the Shimano XT drivetrain components? They're even better than you've heard. Top this storied bike off with a host of FSA components for durability and you've got a rig ready for its place in the history books.
