Moots MXC Goes Old School with a Modern Touch

You could say it’s an XC marathon bike, and some might even say the Moots MXC is a gravel bike; either way, we want one. But it would be boring to put such narrow labels on a bike this exciting! The MXC is Moots’ solution for riders looking for a lightweight ti hardtail designed for buff trails, demanding climbs, hours of hard pedaling, and locations where “downcountry” trends don’t apply.

Moots MXC

The 1x-specific frame has space for a massive 38T ring, clearance for 2.4” tires, and space for up to 3 water bottle mounts. Sounds like a gravel bike! The lightweight, large-diameter, double-butted front triangle joins a T47 bottom bracket and boost 148mm dropouts to manifest in ultimate axle-to-axle tracking.

The MXC is best paired with 100mm suspension forks to achieve a refreshing 69-degree* headtube angle. And no, that’s not a typo – this rig is purpose-built for riders seeking a bike that excels in high-speed yet mellow terrain.

Ideal for the person hotting mellow trails, bike paths or farm roads. For the racer, think Leadville 100, Chequamegon, and Sea Otter Classic—fast, efficient, and fun. For more aggressive trail conditions, riders might opt for their 120mm YBB-equipped Mountaineer .
