The riding scene in the UK is renown for a passion for their hardtail riding. So who better to develop a hardtail that can be the perfect companion for exciting trail sessions and demanding all-day rides over rough terrain.

The result of this collaboration… a hardail perfectly suited to to the demands of UK riding, in terms of geometry, ride quality and component specification.
