Bikes designed for riding on a paved surface where the tyres do not lose ground contact, plus smooth gravel roads and improved trails with moderate grades where the tyres do not lose ground contact, plus rough trails, small obstacles, and smooth technical areas, including areas where momentary loss of tyre contact with the ground may occur. NOT jumping.

INTENDED: For cross-country riding and racing which ranges from mild to aggressive over intermediate terrain (eg. Hilly with small obstacles like roots, rocks, loose surfaces and hard pack and depressions). Cross-country and marathon equipment (tyres, shocks, frames, drive-trains) are light weight, favouring nimble speed over brute force. Suspension travel is relatively short since the bike is intended to move quickly on the ground.

NOT INTENDED: For Hardcore Freeriding, Extreme Downhill, Dirt Jumping, Slopestyle, or very aggressive or extreme riding. No spending time in the air landing hard and hammering through obstacles.

With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

You Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that, as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up and get it sent out to you - it often never even hits the stock room shelves!


With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.
