The all-new Pique Advanced 29 has evolved and is ready to slay yesterday’s PRs.

We’ve put Pique through the paces with rigorous testing for ultimate cross-country mountain bike performance. Discover the benefits behind Pique’s completely reengineered design.

The 2024 Pique Advanced 29 outperforms its 2023 predecessor by shedding 297 grams.

This significant weight reduction was accomplished through several key enhancements:

Testing Protocols

  • Size small, unpainted, production frame
  • Rear derailleur hanger
  • All production hardware (bearing/bolt of each pivot, water bottle bolts, etc.)

Through testing, we discovered the 2024 Pique Advanced 29 provides up to 6 percent greater torsional stiffness than its predecessor.

Higher frameset stiffness means better cornering, stability, and efficiency. This significant improvement is attributed to:

  • A redesigned top tube, evolving from a bent to a straight shape.
  • Reengineered down tube, top tube and chainstay to a wider, square profile.
  • Use of a lighter, stiffer, more superior carbon fiber material.

We also discovered the 2024 Pique Advanced 29 offers up to 10 percent more pedaling stiffness than its predecessor.

Greater pedaling stiffness means better power transfer, handling, and predictable performance. This significant improvement is attributed to:

  • The wider, square-shaped redesign of the down tube and chainstay.
  • Use of a lighter, stiffer, more superior carbon fiber material.

Testing Protocols

Stiffness was assessed using the protocols established by Germany’s TOUR magazine with size small framesets, evaluating both torsional and pedaling stiffness.

  • Torsional stiffness was determined by how much the complete frameset flexed under a twisting load. Each frameset was locked at the rear dropouts with lateral force applied to the head tube.
  • Pedaling stiffness was determined by how much the complete frameset flexed under a pedaling load. Each frameset was locked at the rear dropouts and stabilized at the front by a rigid fixture resembling a suspension fork, providing stability as force was exerted on the crankset to simulate pedaling.

Overall, the enhanced frameset stiffness in the new Pique Advanced 29 translates to more efficient power transmission, allowing riders to reach and maintain higher speeds with less effort. The combination of lower weight and augmented stiffness culminates in unrivaled efficiency.
