The Element XR is built around a high tensile steel frame making it both strong and responsive so perfect for weekend jaunts or taking on the trails. Other features include lightweight Alloy rims and a powerful V type brake system with lightweight alloy levers, chunky wide mountain bike tyres and a comfort padded saddle. The Element XR also features 18 speed Sunrun gearing with mega range feature to minimize the impact of steep hills. Rock solid specification at an affordable price. The updated frame geometry offers better clearance to allow tyres to spin freely, decreasing the risk of dirt clogging up. The head angle has been reduced for a more predictable/stable ride. Steeper seat tube angle makes climbing easier and pedalling more efficient. Longer front centre increases stability, longer wheelbase increases comfort and inspires confidence in descents.
