With over-sized wheels, riders enjoy less rolling resistance, better traction and grip, and more stability on the trails. Getting the bikes to behave as nimbly as 26ers is not easy though. We experimented with varying head angles, chainstay lengths and BB drops to find the optimum combination. Then we tuned the seat stays to offer micro suspension. Finally we addressed rider fit. The Detritovore features the lowest stack height in the business, to suit all but the most diminutive of riders. And for size XS, there’s a 650B version.

"Seriously good. A rider’s bike that blends race-ready speed with all-day ride comfort."

Short head tube for more flexible fit options.

Box-Profile Down Tube, Head Tube And Chainstays Optimise Power Transfer.

Tuned seat stays absorb trail vibrations and resist lateral forces.

142mm rear thru-axle for stiffness.


The key engineering challenge with this frame was to combine stiffness with compliance. We use box-section tubes in the main triangle with a mixture of T800 and T1000 carbon fibre in key areas where there are high pedaling loads and specced a PF30 bottom bracket shell. Then, the rear stays are thinner and the fibres are laid up to be laterally stiff, but allow a certain degree of flex.
