The Shift R5 LT is a longer travel version of our four-bar linkage design with 140mm of All Mountain suspension. it features an X6-series alloy frame with an internal tapered head tube. The rear suspension platform offers a progressive spring curve with its central linkage and chainstay pivots to optimize shock performance and isolate the rear shock from braking forces while keeping the suspension active. The R5 LT uses RockShox' s new Recon RL Boost suspension fork with 150mm of travel, a Deore drive train fitted with an FSA Comet Boost crankset and a 30t chainring for easy climbing. The Shift R5 LT uses U28 TL tubeless compatible double wall rims paired with the new Kenda 27.5x2.4" HellKat & HellDiver tires for more aggressive riding, and features a new X-Fusion Manic internal dropper post for quick adjustments on the fly.
