The latest in electronic wireless componentry from SRAM.

SRAM AXS component groupNo cable, housing or wires: that’s just one benefit of SRAM MTB's Eagle AXS. The new AXS groupo has all the features of SRAM’s 12-speed Eagle line coupled with predictable electronic, wireless shifting. The connected, wireless derailleur is operated by the AXS Controller, which is customizable via SRAM’s AXS app.

SRAM has also launched the wireless RockShox Reverb AXS electronic dropper. It’s actuated with the touch of a button, and because there are no cables to deal with, it’s easy to install, remove and maintain.

Available as a complete group only and retails for $1,900. Contact us to learn more about this wireless electronic groupset! Product ships in April.

Long travel, all mountain goodness.

2019 Scott RansomThe 2019 Scott Ransom is truly designed to do it all. This 170mm travel 29er weighs in under 30 pounds! It's progressive geometry allows it to climb like an XC bike and descends like a park bike, with suspension adjustments controlled by a 3-position lever right from the handlebars. It’s perfect for long, legit climbs with demanding downhills, but versatile enough to ride anywhere.

The Path Bike Shop buyer Brian Blair took a trip to the Swiss Alps last summer to ride the Scott Ransom in its native habitat...stop by the shop and ask him all about it! And we’ve got several in stock, so you can check one out in person.

It's a classic Santa Cruz hardtail.

2019 Santa Cruz Chameleon with carbone frameThe 2019 Santa Cruz Chameleon is up for any kind of riding - dirt or asphalt, mountain or urban, geared or singlespeed - the choice is yours.

Geeared options use 148mm 'Boost' spacing while the single speed options use 142 spacing to accommodate dedicated singlespeed hubs.
