Legend has it that Raleigh's Skarn Sport eats rocks for breakfast, technical descents for lunch, and endless singletrack climbs for dinner. Can the legend be true? With a light aluminum/carbon frame adorned with a Fox Float CTD shock and mated to a RockShox XC32 fork, each delivering 100mm of travel, there's reason to believe. With that much balanced, plush suspension smoothing out the trails, it's hard to believe it could get any better, but the Skarn's got big 29-inch wheels wrapped in Kenda rubber to help you go even faster with even more control. The legend is real! 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 Tektro Gemini hydraulic discs to modulate your gnar. Top this storied bike off with a host of Raleigh components for durability and you've got a rig ready for its place in the history books.
