A highly versatile trail and XC bike, the Chaser reigns supreme from a fast lap of your local trails, up to a full day in the saddle.

The Chaser started life as an endurance XC race bike, but now it combines the speed and lightness of an XC frame with the extra stability and compliance of a trail bike thanks to updated geometry and a wider range of sizes.

Built for 29″ wheels, 100mm of fork travel, 142 x 12mm dropouts, and with optional dropper seat post cable routing, the Chaser is the only trail bike you’ll need.

  • 29″ wheels
  • Available in 5 sizes
  • Reynolds 853 & 631 front end, Columbus & Deda stays
  • 100mm fork travel
  • Optional dropper post cable guides
  • Approx. 2.1kg (Size M, all axles, fasteners etc)

Chaser XC 2015 Geometry


Internal Cable Routing

The cables are routed through thin stainless steel guide tubes, which run the full length of each internal portion. Rear brake and derailleur cables run internally through the down tube, then externally below the chain stays for the remaining distance. Stealth dropper post cable routing runs internally through the down tube, and directly into the base of the seat tube. The front ends of the cables are sealed to the stainless guide tubes, so that water and dirt cannot enter the frame.

Integrated Seat Clamp

An integrated seat clamp keeps the bike as simple and secure as possible, and complements a dropper seatpost nicely. The clamp requires a 5mm allen key to release and tighten.

Custom Head Badge Text

Custom head badge text allows you to add a line of text to the head tube badge on your frame. Add your own name, your preferred beverage, a short message about Strava or carbon fibre, or even your favourite film, to personalise your bike. Maximum of 11 characters; A-Z, 0-9.

Bottle Cage Mounts

BTR bottle cage bosses are stainless steel, and ‘blind’ (no through-hole). This means that they not only work flawlessly as mounts, but also ensure that the frame isn’t compromised by their existence – even if you leave them open. Each pair (for one bottle cage) costs £20.

Bottle Cage Locations:

  • First cage – top side of down tube
  • Second cage – front side of seat tube
  • Third cage – underside of down tube

If you need to relocate a bottle cage, please contact us before placing your order.

Front Derailleur Cable Routing

If you need more than 500% gear range, we can still equip your frame with cable guides for a front derailleur. Note that these guides are always external, even if all other cables are internally routed. The cable will be routed on the underside of the top tube, and to a fixed stop on the back of the seat tube above the derailleur.

Standard Frame Colours

Standard frame colours are included in the price of a frame. Please refer to the Frame Colour Chart. Please note that the clearcoat (raw) frame finish is no longer available, as of December 1st 2018.

Special Frame Colours
