Moots Mooto XZ 29er Full Suspension

5/5 (2 Reviews)
MSRP : $3075.00


Product Description

29’’ wheels in a dual suspension platform for those rides that take you to the backcountry and back again. 4’’ of plush travel give a new dimension to 29’’ wheel technology. Confidently charging a nasty line soon becomes the norm while riding this bike. It almost feels like cheating after you cleaned the un-cleanable line you have always avoided around. Our MARC (matched arc) suspension design eliminates pivot at the rear, giving this bike a solid feel throughout the travel, while reducing weight and maintenance. The MootoXZ frame mates a 6061 alloy rear triangle mated to our Moots Pi Tech seamless 3/2.5 titanium front and comes equipped with a Fox RP23 rear shock with ProPedal. Available in 5 stock sizes and custom designs.

  • 5 stock sizes: 16.5, 18, 19, 20, 22
  • 29er: 29 inch wheels front and rear
  • 4 inch travel: front and rear
  • Fox RP23 shock
  • MARC suspension
  • 3/2.5 grade titanium front triangle
  • Sapa aluminum rear end

    Strengths:    Drives great, standard 18" frame for me at 5'9". Dealer recommended to go for "if in doubt go smaller on 29"-er bike". Wheels are big and lift frame. He was right.
    -
    Bike climbs well - no "breaking through ice"-effect for me @170lbs driver weight.
    -
    Wonderful craftsmanship.


    Weaknesses:    Long delivery time - three times longer than initially announced. In the end it was not only the frame that took longer. I cannot judge if it was dealer, Moots, summer vacation time or overall supply chain issues in bike industry.

    Cost: Worth every penny.


    Bottom Line:   
    I tried the Specilized EPIC 29" for a weekend. At roughly half the price it came only in white and fully preconfigured. Already way too expensive to make such compromizes.

    Also, on the EPIC I observed the "breaking through ice"-effect on steep climbs, which really upset me. By that I mean you pull on the handle really hard and apply pressure to the pedal and suddenly the bike dives in, but no major advancement.

    Regarding the Moots: Drives great, no bop, no breaking through ice for me.

    Bottomline: If you don't make such an investment every ten years or so, don't compromise - go for it!

    Strengths:    crazy good climber over anything technical, super stable while downhilling and cornering

    Weaknesses:    takes a little longer to pedal up to speed on a flat but barley noticable.

    Bottom Line:   
    hands down the most fun I have ever had on a bike on the Colorado Trail. I smoked my normal climbing times as the bike powers over everything; so much torque being transferred to the rear wheel. it felt super stable and confident on downhills and in the corners. if i had 7 grand I'd buy it

    Mooto XZ v.1 front derailleur

    Just discovered that I can't use an e-mount front derailleur because of the large pivot so looking for specs on band. Have a bunch in bin so 34.9? and what pull, swing? Running XT 2 speed crank (Race). Your experience appreciated.Read More »

    Moots Mooto XZ confusion

    I was looking at the Moots Mooto XZ and I don't see the point. You pay huge money for the titanium and it is lost in the suspension. It probably flexes like crazy and is a dated suspension design. It seems to be aluminum would be a better choice with a more modern design. Hmm.Read More »

    Mooto XZ

    I just started my Moots saving account and was wondering is anyone riding the Mooto XZ? I see alot of pics but not many of the FS Mooto XZ. Just wondering how the bike feels and how people have them setup. Can't wait to get this build going. Pleases post pics of your Mooto XZ 29er if you got them. ... Read More »

    Mach 429 vs Mooto XZ: Pivot wins

    I was all set to go Titus FTM, then turned to the Mach 5, ultimately stumbled onto the Mach 429 but was then was wooed by the Moots Mooto XZ. But in "the proof is in the ride and feel" category, the Mach 429 came out ahead - way ahead since I'm getting one built. I started this thread in the Moot ... Read More »

    Mooto XZ with 120mm fork?

    Ok so I have a 2008 Turner Sultan and am in the market for another 29er FS to replace her with. I have been looking at the XZ but have a couple questions. Is anyone running a 120mm front fork? Looks like the geometry would be changed to about 71 degrees which is great with me. Also I am riding a Lar ... Read More »
