The most versatile bike in Ellsworth's full suspension line up, the all new Moment sst.2 now features 160 mm of Fox Factory Tuned ICT travel and the svelte, swooping tubes to give you more critical operating clearance, while lowering weight and increasing stiffness. This subtle yet astounding version of the Moment features a new lighter and stronger pivot integrated seat tube and semi-integrated tapered head tube. The Moment climbs and accelerates like an "XC" bike, yet its geometry and travel specifications make it possible to handle any terrain. Get into any Moment, with the light weight, indestructible durability of the sport-utility of mountain bikes. Available shock options: Fox Float RP23 Fox DHX Air 5.0 Fox DHX RC4 Coil ICT? Technology: Instant Center Tracking? is internationally patented and quantifiably the most energy-efficient suspension design in the world, period. Internationally acclaimed, ICT four-bar linkage technology provides up to 100% pedal power efficiency by aligning the instant center of the linkage on the chain torque line and continually tracking it throughout the range of travel. What does that mean in layman?s terms? It means ICT allows pedal power to propel the rider forward without power loss, effectively avoiding the common suspension design flaw that divides pedal inputs into a wasteful combination of forward and vertical (jacking or bobbing) motions. ICT-equipped bikes are legendary for their rare combination of responsive performance and plush suspension that can be found nowhere else. All ICT-equipped bikes feature 12mm pivot axles and oversized bearings for superior pivot stability and lateral stiffness under power. Our commitment to raising the limits of suspension technology, innovation and performance.

Strengths: Plush feel because of ICT suspension design. Excellent control during cornering and braking. Responsive suspension movement whether small or big bumps. Great all-around all-day mountain bike. Attractive lines because of new SST.2 design of tubes. Anodized paint. Exceptionally light for an all-mountain bike at 30 lbs. Feels lighter than its actual weight. Extra plus points for the good looking design.
Excellent bike. Definitely the money's worth. ICT suspension design is really what they say it is. This is one bike that lives up to the hype and more. Exceeded every expectation I had and I'm still seeing what the bike can do the more I ride it. Bike can sprint and take big drops with stability. The bike is planted well in any condition whether it be cornering, braking or taking on hits. Never made me lose confidence in what's up ahead. Bottom line... you got to get one.
