Rangefinder Deore 12 29 is a proven recipe for a good time on trails near and far. We baked in a host of nice features to make it one of the best hardtail trail bike options out there: our stable trail geometry, a 120 mm suspension fork, and a dropper post help you feel confident in taking on new features. 29” wheels help you roll over obstacles, and 2.6”-wide tires have plenty of traction on tap. Throw in Shimano’s Deore 12-speed drivetrain for a wide gear range and you’re ready to dig into whatever the trail serves up.


  • 6061-T6 Aluminum Tube Set: A blend of our proprietary, top-shelf 6061-T6 double- and triple-butted tubing creates a light, responsive, and durable frame with great trail feel
    Rangefinder Trail Geometry: Rangefinder's long top tube, short stem, and 439 mm chainstays provide a stable ride to keep you in control on steep and technical terrain
  • 120 mm of Front Suspension Travel: A 120 mm fork soaks up the trail and a thru-axle keeps the front end stiff for precise handling
  • Dropper Post Included: Drop your saddle at the press of a button to tackle steep descents and technical terrain with the included TranzX dropper post. The Rangefinder frame also provides stealth dropper post cable routing for a clean look
  • Cargo Capacity: The Rangefinder frame has two bottle cages on the inside of the frame, an accessory mount on the underside of the down tube, and top tube mounts for use with our EXP Series Direct-Mount Top Tube Bag. Rear rack mounting bosses are also included at the dropouts, and with the addition of a 35.0mm Rack-Lock seatpost collar, a rear rack can be fitted
  • Full-Length Cable Routing: Full-length housing improves shifting in poor conditions and increases the time between maintenance intervals
  • Dual Wheel Size Compatibility: Rangefinder can fit both 29" (maximum of 29 x 2.6") and 27.5+ (27.5 x 2.8–3.0") wheels and tires
