Sherpa

Designed to carry you and your gear to the ends of the earth, far from the nearest Strava segment and through whatever ambitious backcountry route you didn’t know you were planning.

Travel: 120mm (F) / 95mm (R)

Wheel Size: 27.5+

Intended Use: Overland & Bikepacking

The Sherpa puts a Rocky Mountain twist on the concept of bikepacking, allowing riders to tackle more challenging terrain and get a little rowdy—even loaded down for multi day self-supported adventures. The Sherpa will carry you and your gear to the ends of the earth, far from the nearest Strava segment and through whatever ambitious backcountry route you didn’t know you were planning.

We began with our proven Element carbon front triangle and designed a wider rear end to ensure that a front derailleur would clear even the widest tires, because fully loaded overlanding requires an extended gear range.

The wide footprint and high volume of 27.5+ tires give the Sherpa confidence and stability in choppy sections—important when you’re loaded down with gear and going mach chicken over high desert chunder. They also have surprisingly low rolling resistance and excellent roll-over characteristics. 

We matched its 95mm of rear travel to an increased 120mm of front travel for more capability and loaded stability. Rider position was adjusted to be more upright, making long days in the saddle more comfortable.

From bushwhacking in Idaho, to traversing military trails in the Dolomites, to racing the Colorado Trail, to travelling long forgotten game trails in the Himalayas—the Sherpa is made for anyone whose adventures regularly require a GPS beacon.
