Moots Mooto XZ 29er Full Suspension

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

    Strength:

    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.

    Weakness:

    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.

    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!

    Strength:

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

    Weakness:

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

    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
