Hardtail 29er trail centre mountain bike come bikepacker compatible with 650b+. Its beauty is in its simplicity, but don’t confuse simple with basic. Cleans lines, internal routing make Frontier an exceptional bike.

Frontier is our alloy 29er hardtail - ride it hard around the trail centre, load it up and sneak off for a midweek bikepacking trip through mid-Wales, pocket your passport and continue much further afield.

The geometry is relaxed for long day comfort but its no slouch. The 6061 aluminium frame provides a durable, low maintenance and stiff chassis giving a responsive kick as you demand power when the slope steepens or enjoy feedback and precision through the corners.

Frontier can be tailored to ride how you want it to ride. If fully rigid is not for you the geometry and head angle allows capacity to take a 100 mm fork. So you can have it set up for XC race speed or all-day comfort and put in the miles. Big 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.

Optimised for 1x drivetrains, Frontier is available in NX1 builds with rigid or suspension forks.

Frontier excels both loaded and unloaded, absorbing every surface you ride - you decide how you want to pack for your adventure. With full rack mounts at the back and multiple boss mounts on the fork Frontier is an adaptable offroad explorer. Responsive when loaded up in the modern lightweight bikepacking style of travel, it is more than happy for a set of panniers to be thrown over it.

Wherever you are in the world - squeezing in an after work loop or halfway through an adventure of a lifetime; Frontier eats up long-distance trails with style and comfort with the shameless enthusiasm of a trail centre hardtail.

Aluminium frame

The 6061 aluminium tubing is durable, light, low maintenance and stiff.

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.

Pannier ready

Responsive when loaded - Frontier is more than happy to shoulder a pannier.
