Fittingly, Pyga bikes are designed in South Africa, for South African terrain, and features modern geometry, such as a slacker head angle and longer reach to make riding on technical terrain more comfortable. The Plus Five system ensures the best possible chain line for 1x drive trains. The Pyga Stage has a full carbon frame with space for two bottle cages inside the front triangle.

The now-familiar gold of SRAM's XX1 Eagle drivetrain transfers power, while a Stages Carbon GXP power meter, measures those all important watts. The suspension is taken care of by the RockShox SID World Cup fork and the RockShox Monarch RT3 rear shock. Philip has removed the remote lockout from the fork.

The Propel is the cross-country offering (there are three wheels with different riding purposes in the range) with 28 offset spoke holes, a 22 mm internal width, and a claimed rim weight of 355 grams.
