Jenson Exclusive: Chromag Wideangle GX Eagle Spec-A Bike
A Contemporary Classic
Arisen from the mossy, rocky wonderland of Canada's North Shore, Chromag has refind and given birth to their ideal all-mountain hardtail. Engineered to the extremes, the Chromag Wideangle frame is a burly, hand built wonder. The key is optimizing strength to weight while still maximizing ride quality. By using a custom-drawn chromoly tubeset, Chromag is able to fine tune the frame's aesthetics as well as allowing them to tailor the frame to perform exactly as they see fit. At the bottom bracket and chainstay intersection they have opted for the use of their "Yokel". It is a small, machined chromoly segment allowing for increased drivetrain and tire clearances while still allowing for short chainstays. Additional features new for 2017 include Boost spacing, a beautiful tapered 44-56mm headtube, 27.5" trail-honed geometry and a dang good looking headbadge.
This isn't your dad's hardtail. While many often consider hardtails as an XC-only kind of bike only for climbing and skittering nervously down trails, the Wideangle is anything but. The Wideangle is meant to rip. Built specifically for the demands of modern British Columbian trails, these frames have been torture-tested deep in the forest to deal with the harshest riding. You will be amazed at how well this bike soaks up the chunder as you tackle technical trails. A carefully balanced geometry is key to making a longer-travel hardtail work, with a steeper seat angle to keep you in the power position for steep climbs. Throw on a dropper post to take the versatility to a new level. The bike is built to pump, rip and plunder.
This Jenson USA Exclusive Build is carefully designed to complement the frame and offer the best price to performance ratio. For the Wideangle frame, we went with a rock-solid SRAM GX Eagle 12 speed drivetrain. With its perfect shifts and wide gear range, SRAM GX Eagle will see you through the longest backroads and steepest climbs without pushing the price of this bike into the stratosphere. Shimano SLX brakes stop on dime in any condition and offer low-key good looks. The RockShox fork sports a healthy 150mm of travel and keeps you on point as it gobbles up chunky terrain. Rounding out this custom trail weapon is Race Face Aeffect wheels wrapped in Maxxis rubber and a Chromag cockpit for superior control and durability.

I love the bike apart from the seatpost failed on the second ride.
The bike itself is pretty great. A lot of fun to ride and handles pretty much everything very well. The downside- the Raceface seatpost sucks. It failed on the second ride and I am still waiting for a response from JensonUSA.
