Introducing the Deviate Highlander 140 Frame, a high-performance MTB frame designed and tested in the rugged terrain of Scotland. The Deviate Highlander 140 is a bike that embodies both strength and versatility, making it the perfect choice for adventurous bikers looking for a capable trail bike. With 140mm of rear travel and 29" wheels, the all-carbon frame offers a balanced geometry, progressive leverage curve, and a high pivot point suspension design that makes it a true all-rounder.
The high pivot point suspension design, along with the careful idler placement, provides the Deviate Highlander 140 with unparalleled performance. The rearward axle path allows the bike to flow smoothly over rough terrain, while the idler location controls anti-squat to eliminate pedal kickback and suspension bob. This results in a bike that handles aggressive riding with ease and provides the rider with a smooth and confident ride experience.
The linkage design of the Deviate Highlander 140 features a progressive leverage curve, allowing for compatibility with high volume air shocks and coil shocks. The use of an idler further fine-tunes the bike's performance, providing a balanced anti-squat curve and a smooth pedaling experience, even on rough terrain. The unique kinematics of the high pivot point design ensure that the bike's geometry and stability are maintained under heavy braking, making it a truly fearless trail bike.
Overall, the Deviate Highlander 140 Frame is a bike that inspires confidence and provides a fun, playful ride. Whether you're embarking on an all-day back-country epic or hitting the bike park, this MTB frame is sure to put a smile on your face and bring out the warrior in you.
