it couldn’t get
RC529 - STEEL HARDTAIL
29ers aint what they used to be
Our best selling Steel hardtail. Change is a good thing as they say- in this case a very good thing because the platform for our 2021 bike is of course our benchmark 2019 model already one of the highest performance hardtails we’ve ever designed. And when you think about it the centre of any design is the BB- the point from which every dimension springs and the core of our legendary handling. A low BB= low Centre of Gravity- so you're 'in' not 'on' and Pace are past masters at dialing those numbers. Match that with our revised front end geometry for the latest generation short offset/long trail forks and steep seat tube/ short chain stays and you have unparalled descending and climbing ability. Also now with a 65 degree head angle and longer front centre for ultimate confidence when the trail drops off the side of a mountain, turns down the jump line and generally leads you into mischief.
Other new features include more rear tyre clearance whether you’re running a 29er or a 27.5”+ rear wheel, cleaner control cable routing as we’ve focused the design exclusively on 1x systems plus additional mounts to secure dropper hose and rear mech cables. We’ve shaved a bit of weight off the chainstays too and lavished the frame with two hot new colours and graphics all beneath a tough easy to clean gloss clearcoat. Not forgetting the anti-corosion ED Black coating all frames receive before we add the automotive quality top coats.
Standard features include the sublime ride quality courtesy of the Reynolds 853 steel mainframe tubes nipped and tucked for a soft forgiving ride and minimalist look. Short tapered headtube tough enough to take 130-150mm travel forks supported by subtle gussets in those high load areas to provide that additional bit of re-assurance. You also get ISCG tabs and our unique Slideout system- a proven way to give you built in rider centering without having to flip a chip or replace hangers and brake mounts. There’s also full rear rack and mudguard mounts for those who fancy a bit of back country hustling or need to load up those panniers. Refined, durable and reliable- no quirky design or materials here thanks just solid design and engineering (we know you love to see attention to detail on a Pace).
- Made with: Reynolds 853 Steel up front and Pace chromo Steel on the rear.
- 29” both or 27.5”+ rear wheel compatible
- Now accepts latest generation short offset forks in 130-150 travel
- Designed for: Designed for slaying steep, fast, challenging singletrack
