Featuring the industry's first 29er-specific tubeset, the Cohutta features an angle-adjustable 49mm head tube with 80-120mm fork compatibility. Its light front end tracks exactly where you tell it to go.
The Cohutta provides the rigidity needed for surviving heavy-duty single-track terrain, yet the nimbleness required for stellar tracking and performance. The tubeset features a BB30 bottom bracket, 49mm head tube, oversized tubes and a curved downtube to clear the adjusting knobs on suspension forks. While the Cohutta handles steep descents with control and tackles climbs like a champ, Litespeed’s 4nine technology allows ride tuning in regards to fork and headset selection.
Litespeed’s 4nine technology is forward thinking for 29-inch wheels. With clean-sheet-of-paper thinking in regards to tubeset and geometry, Litespeed designed a fully optimized 29er that increases torsional stiffness of the entire front triangle of the frame and permits a wide range of fork choices. The rider can truly customize based on preference, distance and terrain.
