The Shift Plus models know no boundaries...Built out of proprietary X6 alloy tubing and a Four-bar linkage frame with Plus geometry, the brand new Shift R5 Plus is the ultimate go-anywhere-do-anything Trail suspension bike on a budget. It features 130mm of front and rear travel with a 2019 Rockshox Recon RL Boost fork. Add to the list WTB i35 wide rims paired with Kenda Havoc 27.5 x 2.6" tires, you'll have so much suspension and control, you will feel total riding confidence. The Shift Plus Four-Bar linkage frame design with its central linkage and chainstay pivots offers a smooth Trail / pedaling platform, which optimizes shock performance and keep the suspension active when needed. The Manic dropper post and its new remote lever add convenience while Shimano MT-400 hydraulic disc brakes stop this beast on a dime. The Shimano Deore rear derailleur and cassette are paired with a FSA Comet Boost crankset featuring a 30T chainring for maximum climbing efficiency.
