Get into some seriously light and strong carbon with a Blue XC2 mountain bike frame. Firstly, at 1250g (claimed), you'll be losing a chunk of weight right off the bat if you're switching from a metal frame. XC2 also has a beefed-up tapered 1 ½ - 1 ⅛" head tube that offers unprecedented stiffness and steering response--the overall result, a full-on hardtail mountain assault vehicle that will make you faster.
