The Big Al is the 29” counterpart to the Marley; designed as a fun all-rounder with the same performance and value that made its smaller-wheeled sibling a multiple test winner.
The Big Al 1.0 takes all that’s great about the 2.0 but upgrades the spec: The addition of the group test winning Brand-X Ascend dropper plus the upgraded 11-speed Deore groupset and M6100 brakes. Keeping things lively at the business end; a Marzocchi Z2 Rail provides additional stiffness with 140mm of exceptional damping to keep the front wheel digging into the dirt.
A perfect balance between all-out gravity led tomfoolery and practical pedalability. Just like the Marley, the Big Al is well mannered during a leisurely all-day ride but drop the saddle and send it down the rough stuff for the good times…
Everything you could want from an all-round hardtail; get wild straight out of the box.
