2015 Skarn Expert

We have taken our return to XC racing very seriously and the Skarn is the result of our trial and error. The Skarn Expert is our race light, reliable, podium chasing soul crusher. The Skarn's Alloy/Carbon frame with single pivot rear suspension and a 142x12 rear axle is designed around pure power transfer. The Fox Float CTD rear suspension is custom tuned for maximum climbing efficiency, while also sending you sailing smooth through the roughest of descents.
