The Signal is fast, it’s for flat out speed.
It pedals like an XC bike, descends like an enduro bike, and captures the rawness of riding a hardtail on fast, flowy singletrack. Stand up, sprint, and ride it hard on groomed descents at Llandegla and Glentress or take it to the big mountains and get loose.
Every Signal Ti Pinion is built to order. This means the geometry, the tube lengths, the specification, everything is chosen exactly for you, your partner and the journeys you'll take together.
It takes six months from the first conversations we have with you to getting your Signal Ti Pinion for your first ride. In this time we'll talk exactly about what you need and where you're going so that we can design and build your perfect tandem. It's actually a joyful six months, filled with the involvement of having a bike built especially for you, knowing the care and complete obsession over the detail that's going into it. Neil and our team of designers and builders are in touch every step of the way. It's a truly special experience.

That low BB and long wheelbase gives a planted and stable feel through the corners and on high speed descents, the low stack height leaves you with less of that ‘tall’ 29er feeling – you’ll feel like you’re in the bike, not on the bike.
Big wheels roll faster. The 29 in wheels can be paired with 2.2 to 2.6ins tyres with clearance for winter conditions.
The titanium Signal frame is stiff, light and durable. 3Al 2.5V Aeronautical grade titanium tubing softens trail buzz and provides the engaging and lively feel that only Titanium can.
The pinion version of the Signal puts all the moving parts of the gear system out of harm’s way and gives an almost silent, well-balanced ride.
It’s a low maintenance dream - you can cover 10,000km before you need to think about an oil change. The range of gears is just enormous (600%) and because of the way the gearbox works you can dump all of them in one go if you get caught out at the bottom of a brutal climb. It’s an amazing experience.
All the weight of the gears are low and central with a pinion gearbox so handling of the Signal Pinion is beautifully balanced and assured.
With a 1:1 ratio, one rotation of the crank the chart shows the metres the bike travels forward.
