ANY TRAIL ANY TIME 

This is the Highlander II - our all-carbon, all-conquering trail bike, freshly reconfigured for 2024 with full UDH compatibility. A bike for bike park laps, all day rides, messing about in the woods and everything in between. A bike for reaching the highest, most remote peaks, before screaming down the other side in a stream of speed and laughter.

If the Claymore is a huge broadsword, then the Highlander II is a rapier – lighter, perhaps; more agile – but just as deadly in the right hands. It punches far, far above its weight. Carefully considered geometry suits the most discerning of riders, and 145mm of high-pivot travel will get you out of anything you get yourself into, with astounding performance that matches bikes with far more suspension travel.

HIGH PIVOT POINT

We’ve taken what we think is the best high-pivot trail bike on the market, and made it even better. A 65-degree head angle with a 160mm fork is steep enough to be nimble in the sketchiest of woody descents, but slack enough for stability when you break out of the trees into a steep, warp-factor-nine trail. The reach is perfect for comfort when climbing, and roomy enough for flat out descending with ultimate control. Standover is enormous, and the continuous seat tube accommodates the longest dropper posts on the market. The Highlander II is also available in 4 sizes, from Small to X-Large, to suit a wide range of riders.

The Highlander II can be optionally paired with a specially tuned Öhlins TTX2Air shock for class-leading, bump-eating performance and pedalling efficiency.

  • How much does custom paint cost, and how do I get a quote?"
    Due to the nature of custom paintwork, all of our work is quoted individually. As an idea, the paintwork for most frames varies between £450-750, but there is no upper limit! The best way to start the process is to send us an email with as much information as you can about what you would like to have painted (make, model, material) along with any design and colour ideas you might have. We will then get in touch to discuss your requirements and once we have enough info we will be happy to put a quote together for you. There is no commitment required at this stage.
  • Help! I know I want a bespoke custom paint scheme but I have no idea what I want..
    Don't worry, this is quite common! We are here to help guide you through the design process and the many awesome paint options available to you. Our job isn't just to paint, it's also to ensure that you get the custom finish that suits you.
  • Can I drop in for a chat?
    Yes, absolutely! We offer face to face design consultations and love to talk through projects with our customers. As painting is time-critical, please do get in touch to arrange an appointment; we want to be able to give you our full attention.
  • How do I book in my project?
    Once we have discussed your design and you receive a quote, we then just ask for a small non-refundable deposit (normally £50) to secure a paint slot. This can be paid by BACS, cash or Card
  • Can I post my project to you?
    Yes. A large proportion of our work is conducted by post, allowing us to work with customers throughout the UK and beyond. We just ask that when you send your project to us, please send it with plenty of protective wrapping and a large enough box as we will send in back in the same box.
  • How long does it take?
    This depends a lot on what is being painted. However, we aim to turn most bike frames around within 4-5 weeks. We will keep you updated during the process but would always rather it took a bit longer if needed, to ensure you get the best finish. If you have a specific deadline do let us know during quoting/booking and we can plan work accordingly.
  • What can you paint?
    Pretty much anything that fits in our paint booth! Whilst we specialise in all things bike, if it can be painted we will paint it! Other projects we have worked on include a model racing yacht, a Harley Davidson tank and fenders, a wind vane, bottles and signs.
  • What paint do you use?
    We solely use wet spray automotive and custom paints as these are the best for stencil and custom design work, offering the best finish. There are loads of great paints we can use from standard solid and metallic colours, to pearl, candy, flip/chameleon and metal flake, to name a few; often combining them and using different techniques for the most exciting effects.
  • Do you use vinyl decals?
    Generally we try to use only paint, opting to create our own stencil work in house always gives the best finish. However we do understand that particular restorations and projects require decals and can look at these on an individual basis, so please get in touch to discuss.
  • How do I prepare my bike?
    If you are prepping your own bike frame then we ask that it is fully stripped of all hardwear including bottom bracket, headset cups and bearings, and cleaned (including degrease) by yourself. However, we do offer a full strip and rebuild service so please just ask when discussing your project.
  • Will having a custom paint job void my warranty?
    In most cases yes, and we think it's really important to be aware of this. However, we can currently paint Santa Cruz, Deviate, Pivot and Red Chilli frames along with ENVE components without voiding the warranty. We are always looking to add more brands to this list though, so if you have a warranty with another brand please do not hesitate to contact us and we will happily make the relevant enquiries on your behalf.
