Transmitter is our aggressive 27.5" hardtail that holds the lairiest lines.

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 steep sections, up and down, like a pro.

Transmitter frames feature internal cable routing through the downtube, integrated headsets, through-axle hubs, refined dropouts, butted tubes and smooth welds.

Transmitter is a bike that just fits in with hard riding. It's both a fun trail bike and the perfect partner for multi-day epics. You’ll be able to push yourself harder than ever before!
