Frontier is our multi-activity
hardtail mountain bike. Ride hard at the trail centre, load it up for a midweek bikepacking trip, pocket your passport and continue around the world. With full rack mounts at the back and multiple boss mounts on the fork, Frontier is an adaptable off-road explorer.
The geometry is for long day comfort but it’s no slouch.
The 6061 aluminium frame provides a durable and stiff chassis giving a responsive kick as you demand power when the slope steepens or enjoy feedback and precision through the corners.
Available as a fully rigid or with 100 mm suspension fork. Set it up for XC race speed or for all day big mile comfort.
Tyre clearance gives you the choice of 27.5+ or 29in wheelsets. QR Boost 141 mm rear spacing provide the benefit of stronger, stiffer and more efficient wheels.
The 6061 aluminium tubing is durable, light, low maintenance and stiff.
Internal cable routing
Clean lines and tidy cables thanks to internal routing. Frontier also incorporates routing for a dropper seat post.
Wide tyre clearance
Extra width between the chainstays gives you the choice of running 27.5+ tyres up to 3 inches or 29 inch tyres up to 2.4 inches.
Boost axle width
The Frontier frame is designed around QR Boost 141 mm rear spacing providing the benefit of stronger, stiffer and more efficient wheels. Seatstay mounted disc brake for clean lines and damage protection.
Responsive when loaded - Frontier is more than happy to shoulder a pannier.

I've bought this for a forthcoming long distance dirt road ride across Iceland, but have just finished a first run of 3 days round the Cairngorms, followed by a day of trail riding. Modifications so far are a confucius loop handlebar, a 28 tooth chainring (it's hilly up here) and a Blackburn fat bike rack. The latter is attached by an extra long wheel skewer.
So far it's great. I carried gear for 3 nights camping, using panniers and a big dry bag hanging off the bar. Really comfy over gravelly, rough tracks, and it feels very secure and solid.
It wasn't ideal for keeping up with others on a red trail- the terrain suited a suspension bike- but I got down intact thanks to the big tyres.
On top of all that, the price is excellent.
I love this bike
I use this bike for bikepacking. It's the best bike I've ever had (and that says something after bikes that costed eight to ten times more) . I also love to have the NX1. I don't miss the blades in the front at all. Even when on steep English hills. This year I'm on the boat to Dover to cycle the South Downs Way and thus the bike will be back in England for the second time. I have the red one and my husband the green one. The colors are so much more beautiful then on the website. Best regards from the Netherlands!
