Haro FLC 29 Pro – Carbon 29er hardtail

29er Cross Country

Kellen LeBlanc from Haro Bikes shows us some highlights of the 2013 Haro Flightline Carbon 29er Pro. The FLC features a full T-700 carbon fiber frame with super wide down tube to provide a stiff, efficient pedaler. The frame also features internal cable routing, 1-1/8 to 1-1/2″ tapered steerer tube and burly BB92 shell.

The Haro FLC 29 Pro features:

  • Ritchey WCS Bar, Stem, Post (wet black finish)
  • ProLogo Kappa Evo saddle
  • ProLogo Chameleon grips
  • Shimano XT drivetrain (front and rear derailleurs, shifters, crankset, press fit BB92)
  • Shimano XT brakes
  • RockShox SID RL 29 fork – 100mm w/PopLoc feature
  • Shimano MT66 wheels
  • Ritchey Z-Max Evolution Comp tires, 29 x 2.1″

We have been riding and testing the Haro FLC for a few weeks here and we will have a full review write-up soon. In short, it provides a smooth ride that rolls incredibly well, taking full advantage of it’s 29er climbing ability. The geometry and cockpit is race ready, but the stays provide a ride that won’t beat you up. For a 29er, it handles amazingly light and is responsive to steering inputs quickly and is a really fun bike to ride.

Real world weight for a size SM bike is 25.06 lbs. It is available in 3 sizes: 15.5″, 17.5″, 19″

The Haro FLC 29 Pro is available at your local Haro dealer now and MSRP is $3699.99. If that’s a bit much for your budget, Haro also makes the FLC 29 in Expert ($2609.99) and Comp ($2069.99) models.
