The Canadian bike maker’s latest offering is the updated Sight, a revised version of a longtime favorite. Like the outgoing model, it’s available in both 27.5 and 29er. It’s designed with all-mountain versatility and features new geometry that is (of course) longer, lower, and slacker.

The 27.5 version comes equipped with an 150mm fork and 140mm of rear travel. Compared to the old model, the head angle has been slackened by a half-degree. The seat angle is marginally steeper, and reach has been given a small bump. The 29er received similar updates, but comes with an 140mm fork and 130mm of rear travel. Aside from wheel size, the other key difference between the two models is frame size availability. The 27.5 version runs XS to XL, while the 29er only goes from M to XL.

Much care was taken to ensure the 29er and 27.5 versions of the Sight fit as closely as possible in the shared middle sizes.

Each wheel size is available in three builds. Prices start at $3899 and top out at $6499. Frame only is $2599. All versions ship with a 1x drivetrains (but they are also 2x compatible), integrated frame protection, tubeless ready rims, wide bars, and short stems. Riders will also appreciate the meaty tread up front paired with faster rolling rubber in back.
