Crazy Fast Meets Ridiculously Capable
There's a dizzying range of bikes out there these days—XC, trail, all-mountain, enduro...What if you just want a bike that rips on nearly every trail? This is that bike. The Trail 429 is brilliant just about everywhere. It accelerates and climbs like a cross-country bike yet more than holds its own on tough terrain. We took the original Mach 429 Trail, completely reshaped the chassis, and gave the bike a truly progressive geometry. The Trail 429 is even more capable on technical terrain than its predecessor yet doesn't sacrifice a thing in the quick and nimble departments. Effortless handling, incredible power transfer, and blazing acceleration are what set the Trail 429 apart from so many other trail bikes.

Lightweight, Capable, and Perfectly Balanced
The best trail bikes are neither whippy nor overbuilt. They are, in a word, balanced. We sweat the details—painstakingly developing the precise mix of resins, composite fibers, lay-orientation, and frame shaping to create a chassis with the perfect blend of strength and stiffness.

We've also given the Trail 429 many of the same strength and stiffness-enhancing features that you'll find on our gravity-oriented bikes, including a double-wishbone rear triangle, Super Boost Plus rear axle spacing, ultra-wide suspension linkages, and burly bearing assemblies. With the Trail 429, we've upped the ante on downhill performance without any loss in versatility.

Tuned for the Trail
Dave Weagle's dw-link design is renowned for providing great traction and downhill control without adding energy-sucking suspension bob or "squat"—that's also why it's the heart of the Trail 429.

We've paired that class-leading dw-link suspension with custom-tuned Fox Float DPS (Dual Piston System) that give the Trail 429 120 millimeters of smooth and controlled rear suspension. The metric-sized Fox DPS shock features an extremely positive "firm" position that makes easy work of long fire-road climbs. To match the Trail 429's deep-feeling rear suspension, we've equipped each model with a 130mm Fox 34 suspension fork.
