PRIMAL 29 2022

PRIMAL 29 2022


Primals are the most versatile trail rangers in our lineup. Perfect for the weekend trips to a forest, also allow you to cope easily with twisted flow trails, natural singletracks, and even enduro trails. But that's not all - with this frame you can enjoy your first bunny hops and pump track laps. Do you like bigger wheels? We understand that sometimes size does matter.  Primal 29 on bigger wheels with tires up to 2.4” will give you more confidence, more control, and more speed. It’s now possible to shred pretty hard even on the trail bike. This will be also a better choice for longer trips, with many hours spent on the saddle. But remember - at the end size doesn’t matter – #RideYourWay does!

The new generation of Primal frames has refreshed geometry with longer reach and slacker head tube angle. The dropout is compatible with the SRAM Universal Derailleur Hanger (UDH).
