The new Absolute Truth, which appears in Outside’s July issue, features the 27.5” wheels, with the same wheelbase and geometry of the legendary Truth frame. With the lower optimized stand over of the ZS style headset and the unique shaping of the front triangle, Ellsworth has captured the aggressive geometry and bio-kinetically optimized rider position ideal for XC and Endurance racing, complete with 120 mm of travel. Coupled with the updated ICT suspension for today’s gearing, 300 percent higher compaction pressure of the Toray Aerospace Carbon Fiber, and 120mm of XC efficient travel — the Absolute Truth is a new benchmark for XC racing and endurance riding. The 2014 Absolute Truth is available in an beautiful, multi-toned Candy Apple Red with pin striping and detail worthy of an art show. Its Aerospace Aluminum Cousin, the Truth, also with 27.5” wheels — are both available in five sizes (XS to XL). For more information, go HERE.
