The Delivery

Time and trails wait for no man. While it pays to be a slave to riding the same can’t be said for artificial targets and false trophies.
Go. Ride. And make your Segment your own.
A 120/110mm travel 29er that can ride way beyond its travel figure, the Segment balances its inherent big-wheel unflappability with a taught and playful ride that encourages you to let it go faster, both up and down. With its confidence inspiring low-slung stance and the kind of angles more often found on longer travel bikes the Segment is the short travel bike that can, and does.

The Segment. Divides opinions. Conquers trails.

Designed to be the fastest all-rounder we could make, the Segment takes preconceptions about what is possible on a short travel bike and pulls them apart.

We’ve never been strangers to dividing opinion. We know that a 29inch wheel will raise eyebrows. It’s the ‘Marmite’ wheelsize. They are not for everyone and bigger doesn’t necessarily mean better, but in experienced hands they are devastatingly effective and the perfect match for a bike designed to be a true all-rounder.

As ever we’re committed to building bikes that are fit for purpose; namely year round riding without the hassle of an overbearing maintenance regime. We’re interested in getting out and riding not staying in spannering and our bikes reflect that. A single pivot suspension design not only requires minimal attention it also provides the neatest solution to providing easily tuneable, balanced suspension. No acronyms, no fluff, just performance you can depend on and that’s why we’ve stuck with it.
