New for 2021 is the Patrol C09 range of carbon 29er hardtail. These hardcore hardtails might look like XC whips, but their geometry is pure enduro. These sleek carbon frames use new internal cable routing through the headtube and hidden compartment in the downtube for a spare gear hanger.
Patrol C09 frame
If we delve into the frame we find nice features like 2 places to fit a water bottle, a 148×12 rear axle, internal cable routing including a very neat headset design that allows cables and hoses to pass through the steerer, and even a threaded BB.
