This is the more refined younger sibling to middle and lower Inducer. Built by our trail crew in 2017, it is in the same style as the rest of Inducer but with a bit more polish in the corners. A few steeper pitches to keep you on your toes and one steep corner that is good training for the three similar corners on lower Inducer.

Access Info

Access by pedalling up Sunset and Sunrise.
