"The Ultimate Commander"

2013 brings big changes to El Comandante Ultimate with additions of tapered head tube, PressFit 30 bottom bracket, spacious chainstay yoke, and optional 142x12mm thru-axle sliding dropouts. It’s the ultimate do-everything 29er hardtail gone wild! It’s lighter, stiffer, offers more features, can be used with gears, as singlespeed, can run the Gates Carbon drive train and has geometry perfected for hammering the single track. El Comandante Ultimate is the one bike to have in your quiver when you want to do it all.
