·        Helmet
o             Limar Carbon Ultralight + –most people don’t think of saving weight with a helmet but using this helmet, you could be potentially be saving a third of a pound.  It weighs just 212 grams (I weighed it) and has an integrated bug net that is awesome when it gets hot.

·        Glasses
o             Optic Nerve Quazeye

·        Shoes
o             Mavic

·        Other items you ride with
o             Scott gloves, GU gel, Genuine Innovations Big Air and tire plugs, Squirt chain lube  


·        Frame/Size
o       Scott Spark 900 Premium – Size Medium – Super light at 1890 grams for the frame and shock. The Scott Twin Loc locks out the front and rear which is super useful for XC racing.

·        Fork
o       Rock Shox SID World Cup

·        Headset
o       Ritchey Pro

·        Front Derailleur
o       None

·        Rear Derailleur
o       Sram XX1 – The best drive train set up for enduro and XC racing is XX1. It is lighter, simpler, you don’t have to worry about dropping a chain, and the gear range is almost the same as a 2x10 set up. What’s not to like?

·        Shifters
o       SRAM XX1

·        Brakes
o       Formula R1 in Blue- very powerful at just 275 grams

·        Crankset and gearing
o       SRAM XX1 32T

·        Handlebar
o       Salsa Pro Moto Carbon - good width at 640mm and 125 grams

·        Grips
o       ESI Racers Edge- very comfortable, simple, and light

·        Stem
o       Odio

·        Pedals
o       Crankbrothers Eggbeater 11 – If you want too lighten your bike up start with the pedals at only 175 grams for the set. They also have great engagement.

·        Saddle
o       Fizik Tundra 00 – Braided Carbon rails – My choice for comfort and lightweight. Plenty of padding yet still only 155 grams.

·        Hubs
o       Stan’s 330 Ti – These hubs are super easy to convert to 15mm thru axle, 12mm thru axle, and Sram XX1.

·        Chain
o       SRAM XX1

·        Cassette and gearing
o       Sram XX1 10-42t

·        Rims
o      Stan’s Race Gold 29 – Carbon weight at less than half the price.

·        Tires
o       Continental Race King 29 Protection – Super fast rolling with good grip. The Protection is worth the extra weight. Getting a flat is much slower than being 50 grams heavier.

·        Extras
o       Alligator front rotor, Crankskins frame protection - very helpful for carbon frames  

·        Total Bike Weight
o       21 lbs
