The Shift Plus models know no boundaries...Built out of proprietary X6 alloy tubing and a Four-bar linkage frame with Plus geometry, the 2019 Shift R9 Plus is the ultimate go-anywhere-do-anything Trail suspension bike. It features 130mm of rear travel and 140mm of front suspension with a 2019 Rockshox Revelation 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'll barely know the bumps were ever there.
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 SLX hydraulic disc brakes stop this beast on a dime. The Shimano XT rear derailleur and cassette are paired with a lightweight 1X Praxis Cadet M30 crankset featuring a 30T chainring for maximum climbing efficiency.
