Steep downhills require responsive and reliable brakes with superb stopping power. Cruise fast and decelerate faster with Ascent's mechanical disc brakes. And if you opt out of braking before a turn, this mountain bike's grippy tires give you the traction (and confidence) to take on any corner.
Sleek frame & fork
Turn heads before even hitting the trailhead with Ascent's sleek frame, stainless steel spokes and matte finish. This mostly-alloy hardtail mountain bike is lightweight and easier to maintain. What's more, Ascent's stiff, threadless suspension fork absorbs impact, combats torsional flex, and holds lines in the rock garden. And if you're climbing or sprinting, easily flip the lockout lever to stop the suspension and conserve your energy for momentum.
Get up climbs and easily take on varying terrain whether dirt, gravel, or paved with 21 gear combinations. Plus, Ascent's Shimano Tourney derailer with easy Rapidfire shifters offers quick, intuitive shifting at your fingertips.

How to measure my inseam for a bike
Your inseam can help you find the perfect sized bike (measuring it properly is similar to pant inseams but measured a little differently). Here's how they work:
Stand upright with your feet 6-8" apart.
Using a tape measure or tailor tape, measure from the bottom of your foot to the top of the inside of your leg.
Compare your inseam measurement to the standover height of the bike. You should have about an inch of space between your body and the top tube.
