A Lightweight Yet Robust Frame

The MHT 8.6 centres around a durable triple-butted aluminium frame and thru-axle fork providing a responsive ride feel even in technical terrain. Trail-focused geometry delivers stability at speed, while dropdown routing adds compatibility for a dropper post upgrade. This foundation sets you up for success on the descents.

1x10 Drivetrain Tackles Steep Grades

A wide-range 1x10 Shimano Deore drivetrain with a 46T bailout gear lets you maintain momentum on rocky climbs. The simplified single-ring setup reduces weight and eliminates front derailleur hassle so you can stay focused on the trail ahead. Ten rear gears supply plenty of options for sustaining speed across rolling terrain.

Confidence-Inspiring Suspension and Brakes

A plush Suntour Raidon fork smooths out rocks and roots while aiding traction during out-of-the-saddle climbing efforts. Capable Tektro hydraulic disc brakes give you the stopping power and modulation to control your speed through tricky sections.

29” Wheels Roll Over Obstacles

Large 29” wheels and grippy tubeless-ready tyres help the MHT 8.6 stay on track over roots and loose terrain. The big contact patch sticks confidently in corners, allowing you to carry speed out of turns and down singletrack.

Tame Trails and Mountainsides

Wherever your adventure takes you, the MHT 8.6 delivers trail-taming capability and versatility. Flow down descents, conquer climbs and explore new terrains with its blend of stability, control and well-rounded performance.
