by 4

Sure it might be Christmas Day, but that doesn’t stop the news from rolling and this piece is a doozy! After 3 days of social media teasers, Yorkshire’s Pace Cycles has just revealed its latest mountain bike frame, and it’s carbon!

Although the Pace brand has was known for its carbon suspension forks back in the day, the latest RC295 full-suspension frame represents the first time that the company has manufactured a frame from the wonder stuff.

We’ve been sent a few photos of the new bike and we’re already adding it to our 2019 Christmas Wishlist.

Here it is! The RC295 in all its carbon glory!

As the name suggests, the RC295 rolls on 29in wheels and is designed around Boost hub spacing. The bike can run between 130-150mm travel forks, while rear travel is set at 135mm.

Pace has updated is free floating suspension design to use a metric shock.

The suspension system is the latest generation of Pace’s unique free-floating linkage design, updated to use modern metric shocks.

An integrated headset ensures the front end of the bike can be set up super low if required and ensures the long, and low nature of this enduro/trail bike isn’t compromised. While we don’t have a complete geometry chart at this time we do know that Pace will offer the carbon RC295 in sizes medium, large and XL with the large frame sporting an effective top tube length of 642mm.

Pace RC295 prototypes have already tasted mud.

There’s plenty that we don’t know about the Pace RC295 such as the launch date, the price, the geometry or where the carbon frame is made, but we’ll be in touch with the company over the Holidays and see if we can answer those questions soon.

  1. IDK, looks a little cob

  2. Didn’t pace do a carbon tubed frame in its box section hand made days?

    I swear I remember one – would have used Ali head tube, BB, dropouts etc with bonded in carbon “tubes”?

  3. The RC300 had a carbon seat tube. Maybe I saw a concept or am misremembering.

    I’m now hankering for an RC200 F8 or an RC300

  4. I had a Pace with a carbon seat tube. It was so flexy that if I stood up and pedalled too hard the front chainring would shift.
