The rigid mountain bike frame: a classic for a lot of efficiency
The rigid MTB frame is very popular in cross-country for its efficiency and lightness. In recent years, carbon has arrived and revolutionised the semi-rigid frame by bringing a rigidity/lightness ratio never achieved before! From an aesthetic point of view, a rigid mountain bike frame is close to a road bike frame
A rigid frame is available in 26, 27.5 and 29 inches.
