Transmitter is our 27.5" hardtail that delivers on speed, agility and big-trail capability
A long, low and slack hardtail - with geometry dialled for 2022. A hooligan of a bike for trail centres, singletrack and big mountains.
With hardcore northern design roots the Transmitter is the bike for the toughest lines. Smash it down Jacob’s Ladder, slog up Garburn with no dabs… and be quicker than you’ve ever been on everything in-between.
Transmitter is one of the most capable hardtails we’ve ridden and is ready to take on proper mountain trails: Snowdon on a crisp winter day, Colorado singletrack with killer views and grinders where you’ll be glad of the 50 tooth… Yet, pad up and grab the full-facer and you can still take a day trip to Bike Park Wales or alternatively whip around Cannock Chase on a Sunday afternoon chasing your lycra clad mates.
The signature flattened top tube gives vertical compliance but lateral stiffness - it really is an all mountain bike. That long wheelbase combined with the slack front end, size specific chainstays and a lowered BB give stability and control through the rowdiest of terrain.
Transmitter is designed around Boost 148/110 standards and 27.5" 2.6/2.8" tyres, and optimised for 1x groupsets. The geometry and extra grip from those big tyres means even the most sheepish rider will tackle those steep sections, up and down, like a pro.
Transmitter frames now feature internal cable routing through the downtube, integrated headsets, through-axle hubs, refined dropouts, butted tubes and smooth welds (and 3 shiny new colours).
Transmitter is a bike that just fits in with hard riding. This new version is still the fun trail bike it’s always been, and will still be a perfect partner for multi-day epics or short and fast trail centre blasts, but the changes we’ve made have raised the Transmitter’s limits, so you’ll be able to push the bike harder than ever before!
