TRUVATIV DESCENDANT

“Guided by input from some of the most talented riders in Enduro and Gravity, each component in the Descendant lineup has been built to survive mountain biking’s most aggressive riders and thrive on the world’s rowdiest trails.”

DESCENDANT Carbon Crankset

With the quite ridiculous introduction: “The svelte strength of carbon fiber with the swagger of heavy metal” The Descendant carbon crankset is “light enough for XC, yet bold and badass enough for Enduro” apparently. It does however claim to be the most affordable carbon crankset in the bike industry. Prices are £262-286 depending on configuration. It’ll work with 10 or 11 speed 1x systems.

DESCENDANT DH Crankset

“Blending the experience of countless DH podiums, big mountain competitions and film sessions, the new {alloy} Descendant DH crank brings clock-beating weight savings to freeride burliness”
Price will be a reasonable £122-158 and the cranks will come in 165mm and 170mm

DESCENDANT Flat Bar

“Based on the width of Enduro superstar Jerome Clementz” (we assume this is Jerome’s preferred bar width. Not the actual width of the rider…) 🙂
Descendant carbon and 7050 flat bars bring comfort and control to riders seeking the aggressive position a flat bar offers.
Price will be £126 for carbon and £54 for alloy. Width: 750mm (Carbon), 760mm (Alloy).

Carbon £126 Alloy £54

DESCENDANT DH Bar

“The new Descendant DH bar borrows from a rich championship-winning heritage, and adapts it to today’s aggressive courses and riders. Descendant DH bars are the command center of cornering control.” Made from 7050 alloy it comes in 9° sweep, 5° up and an 800mm width. Price £59

There doesn’t seem that much difference in the looks then…

 

DESCENDANT DH Seatpost

Model Overview
Set it and forget it. The most important attribute of a DH seatpost is that you forget it’s there—until you need it to be there. The 3D forged and highly adjustable Descendant DH seatpost is “built to simply do its job so that you can do yours.”  The DH post features zero layback (and a cradle for relaxed seat angles) and comes in 30.9mm and 31.6mm
 with a length of 350mm.

There’s also a more XC version.

A trail and enduro stem, coming in 40, 50 and 60mm lengths, it features a four bolt faceplate and is 3D forged.
