The Truffle is Carbon Wasp’s first foray in to a full production MTB frame. Designed, made and tested entirely in and around Leeds, is this homegrown newcomer the highly prized item born from humble dirt like its namesake?
- Price: £2800 with Cane Creek DB Air shock, £2400 frame only
- From: Carbon Wasp
Three things I loved
- All the speed!
- Yorkshire designed and made for a competitive price.
- Enough of everything you need in a trail bike.
Three things I’d change
- A bit more tyre clearance would allow more tyre & rim options.
- Finish needs improving for production models.
- A little more dropper room would be useful.
