The Taro inhabits the aggressive all-mountain hardtail world. Think of it as a hardtail Process. Defined by its slack 68-degree headtube angle, low bottom bracket and shortest-in-class chainstays, with a super-low toptube for great standover, the bike inspires big confidence.The Taro has single chainring Shimano 10-speed drivetrain with Deore Shadow clutch derailleur, smoothing out the chatter of an otherwise rough-and-tumble world.
