We got word from our buddy, Bobby Dahlberg, up at the Q-Mothership that Heller is coming out with a new, carbon, 27+ hardtail called the Shagamaw.
The Shagamaw is designed with Boost spacing, modern geometry for up to 130mm travel suspension forks, and build options with SRAM GX1 or Shimano Deore.
Bobby says, “At the heart of Shagamaw is the carbon frame which is perfect for the rider whose number-one goal is trail-ripping fun. Blending the 27.5+ wheel and tire platform
with modern trail geometry provides an outstanding balance of traction and fast rolling speed. This bike is simply a blast to ride.”
The Shagamaw can reportedly accommodate 29″ wheels and tires up to 2.5″ for added versatility. Other frame details include full internal cable routing, ports for a dropper post, and Shimano Di2 compatibility in 1x drivetrain configurations.
Look for Shagamaw to hit stores in late spring of 2016. The GX-specced bike will be $2599 while the Deore bike will be $1999 with a frame only option at $1250.
