Like the MX Divide, our Divide spares no expense in creating a well-balanced, lightweight 26” titanium cross-country race bike. We’ve designed the frame around our Fusion Link suspension platform to maximize plushness throughout the full range of travel while minimizing inefficient pedal bob. We also incorporated the most important features from our RSL bikes, including a 44mm head tube, PF 30 bottom bracket, 30.9 seatpost, 100mm fork and formed titanium seat stays to deliver increased stiffness, responsiveness and durability while delivering the magical ride quality you expect from a Moots.
INTENDED USE Cross-country racing and riding on 26’’ wheels.
Fusion Swing Link-Formed out of carbon fiber to be light, stiff and very clean. This provides the connection between seat stays, frame and shock.
Titanium Seat Stays- Sculpted bearing points on each end (designed and machined in-house), mated to 7/8” stays that are ovalized and shaped to provide excellent strenght, stiffnesss and clearance.
Fox RP-23 Kashima Shock-We incorporate the top-of-the-line Fox Kashima Coated Shock on all Divide frames to provide minimal friction during the shock compression and rebound.
Oversized 30.9 Seatpost-Helps optimize overall stiffness.
Lower Pivot Design and Placement-Optimal placement of the pivot works in conjunction with the Fusion Swing Link and RP-23 shock to help achieve maximum plushness throughout the entire travel range while minimizing pedal bob during climbs. Oversized bearings for long life and minimal maintenace.
Oversized PF 30 Bottom Bracket-The stiffer oversized BB increases powere transfer efficeincy through the drive line to help you more quickly accelerate.
44mm Head Tube-Smooth curves and flawless maching house the 44mm internal headset. It can run 1 1/2” to 1 1/8” tapered steerer tubes and provides a very strong and exceptionally stiff platform for precise steering and responsive handling.
142 x 12mm-Rear axle standard makes thru-axles as quick and easy to use as a quick release system, stiff & solid.
Post Mount Disc/Dropout-Light, clean and strong, it’s quickly becoming an industry standard.

We are showing two geometry charts for the MX Divide and Divide models based on the original stock settings of a 100mm non-tapered fork. The top chart shows the geometry numbers with that set up. The lower chart shows what happends to the geometry when the stock frame is set up with a 120mm tapered fork. Many have found the 120mm set up to be a nice medium between the standard cross country oriented set up for more relaxed all-trail riding conditions. It’s very much up to you which way you want your Moots to ride.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
All mountain bikes are built around external 1.5” lower head set bearings for tapered forks.
