Adroit Substrate C5


Classic steel.

Lightweight, responsive, fun, and playful: the Adroit Substrate is exactly what you would expect from an aggressive hardtail. With longer reach, short chainstays, and integrated dropper post routing, the Substrate is worthy of both your daily ride and most epic trail adventures.

Large volume 27.5+ tires roll fast and grip anything. Choose between Carpenter Custom 465 Stainless on the Substrate C7 or Air-Hardening Steel on the Substrate C5 and C3.



398mm chainstays on medium and small sizes. 418mm on large and x-large.

The size medium Substrate is designed to run a 140mm travel fork (551mm length). The size large and x-large Substrate is designed around a 160mm travel fork (571mm length).


Classic steel and carbon fiber:

The C5 build kit features a LT X11rs drivetrain, carbon fiber cockpit, and a CMR fork.
