A WHOLE NEW CLASS OF BIKE
A WHoLE NEW BUNCH OF FUN
REDEFINES WHAT A PERFORMANCE HARDTAIL IS CAPABLE OF...
The all new RC627 lets you break into tech-gnar and enduro territory usually reserved for full sus rigs. From full gas trail centre to fully committed big adventure days and everything in-between the RC627 can handle it all.
A short tucked in rear keeps it playful when you need to manual, pop and play whilst it's supreme stability comes from a longer than average front centre and reach. Out front a slack 65 degree head angle gives you all the confidence you'll need descending and a steeper - shorter seat tube lets you weight the front end on steep tech' climbs and create more room in the cockpit for longer travel droppers.
Outback the RC627 features graceful curves and tucks to the chain and seat stays to give that extra clearance for wider section 2.8” tyres, although this hardtail is't fussed if you would like to stick whippet 2.2" tyres on, whatever is your thing there's clearance for all. We've kept the full rear rack and mudguard mounts for those who fancy a bit of back country touring and need to load up the panniers.
All of our new models feature the latest boosted rear frame spacing so you have clearance for larger section tyres, a stronger rear wheel and an efficient chainline. It has a 12mm Thru Axle and our own original Slideout system so you can tweak the wheelbase for handling and setup by up to 13mm.
Slideouts have been a unique feature on our steel frames for years now and they're a proven way to give you the convenience of replaceable mounts with built in adjustment. CNC machined from 6000 series aluminium this is a well proven design that actually offers more than first meets the eye. The slide outs both bolt into the frame using our unique stainless steel 'T-NUTS' and should be run in full forward position to bring out the most active and urgent riding quality of the bike. Should you want to move the slideout rearward to increase wheelbase or run the bike as a singlespeed then the disc-side has an adjuster screw that penetrates right inside the slide out helping to counteract the rotational load under braking. Meanwhile the drive-side has a push screw design to hold the slideout back as the chain tries to drag it forward. All clever stuff explained in more detail inside the manual.
Like all of our hardtails the RC627 is engineered from high quality British Chromo tube to give that wonderful spring to your ride. No other material can quite match these characteristics and the phrase 'steel is real' is as true today as it ever was. Of course you'll be riding your tough and durable RC627 for years to come given the amazing fatigue properties of steel. We've also subtly added gussets to those high load areas like the underside of the head tube, drive side chain stay and beneath the seat tube clamp to provide that additional bit of re-assurance.
Internal routing through the seattube also has reinforcement where the dropper post hose/cable exits and we’ve sealed this with a neat and tidy custom made grommet (we know you love to see attention to detail on a Pace).
You also get ISCG tabs as standard so should you want to fit a chain retention devise or bash plate you’re good to go.
Up front the RC627 will happily run 130 to 150mm travel forks in its elegant tapered headtube and with all hoses and cables beneath the BB another obvious plus to the RC627 are its clean lines and mean stance.
No quirky design or materials here thanks just solid design and engineering.

ATTENTION TO DETAIL
To protect your frame for the long haul each frame has a corrosion protective ‘ED’ black coating beneath the twin-pack epoxy and tough final lacquer coating and we've chosen to fit the decals on top of the clear coat rather than under the lacquer so you can easily change the decal set and choose a different colour anytime in the future.
