Is it moxie? Is it hutzpah? Is it enough raw speed to guarantee motion blur? Actually, the all-new S-Works Era FSR World Cup embodies all these qualities, but with some barely contained "let's do this!" enthusiasm mixed in. Designed and engineered to be the fastest, lightest, and best-fitting women's full-suspension XC machine out there. This World Cup version, found here, takes the concept of fast to another level. Like its counterpart "standard" version, it's constructed from our finest carbon fiber and features a drool-worthy build kit and a RockShox RS-1 Brain fork. But where it differs is in its tighter geometry and one-by-specific build, which work together to form explosive power transfer and an even nimbler sense of handling. You'll also find that every aspect of this bike is tailored specifically for women, from the crankarm lengths to the low standover geometry. Further along these lines, you'll find that the build holds nothing back, delivering a SRAM XX1 Eagle 12-speed groupset that's lightweight and intuitive, along with SRAM Level Ultimate brakes for some of the best stopping power in the business. And to drive even harder on efficiency and speed, we included our proprietary Brain technology at the fork and rear shock. This intelligent system is able to interpret the difference between rider and trail input, so it stays firm under effort and plush over bumps. Up, down, PRs, and podiums—this gal's got game.
The Era’s responsive FACT 11m carbon frame is stiff, ultra-lightweight, and delivers an efficient, nimble-handling ride. Designed with Women’s Competitive XC 29 Geometry for great fit and control, cabling is internally routed, while the built-in SWAT™ Tool cradle means you’ll always have an EMT multi-tool on hand.
The custom RockShox SID World Cup 29 fork w/ Brain provides 90 to 100mm of efficient travel depending on the frame size. It also features Brain technology that distinguishes between terrain and rider input in order to maximize your power, while a Brain Fade adjusts the oil flow when not hitting bumps. Lastly, the fork is custom-tuned for women, so you'll always have a performance advantage on the trail.
The one-by drivetrain is controlled by SRAM's venerable XX1 Eagle components, while braking duties are handled by SRAM's Level Ultimate binders. Combined, the system forms the ultimate in efficiency and intuitive feel, while also having the added benefit of significant weight savings and minimal required maintenance.
