Product Details

The Mountaineer name has a storied past with Moots dating back to one of the first ever mountain bikes we produced in 1983.

We deemed this bike worthy to use that name again as it points to a bike that is as versatile as it is timeless. Built around a 120mm travel fork and mated to our YBB micro-suspension soft tail to provide the rider with just enough to take the edge off trail imperfections on any terrain.

Our oversized seamless 3/2.5 titanium tubeset is at the heart of the Mountaineer and provides durability and stiffness across the size range.
