Named for a dirty and demanding 100-mile mountain bike race in Copperhill, Tennessee, Litespeed's new titanium Cohutta 29er hardtail features the industry's first-ever 29er specific Ti tubing. The Cohutta provides the rigidity needed for surviving heavy-duty single-track terrain, yet the nimbleness required for stellar tracking and performance
The tubeset features a BB30 bottom bracket, 49mm head tube, oversized tubes and a curved downtube to clear the adjusting knobs on suspension forks. While the Cohutta handles steep descents with control and tackles climbs like a champ, Litespeed's 4nine technology allows ride tuning in regards to fork and headset selectionLitespeed's 4nine technology is 4ward thinking for 29-inch wheels. With clean-sheet-of-paper thinking in regards to tubeset and geometry, Litespeed designed a fully optimized 29er that increases torsional stiffness of the entire front triangle of the frame and permits a wide range of fork choices. The rider can truly customize based on preference, distance and terrain. The 4nine technology increases torsional stiffness of the entire front triangle of the frame and creates a wide range of fork choices, allowing the rider to truly customize based on preference, distance and terrain. Riders can use a straight 1.125" or a 1.125 x 1.5" tapered steerer fork or easily set the bike up with 80-120mm travel forks without compromising handling.
