The Sherpa, refined.

Sherpa Gen4

The Sherpa is the answer. Now what's the question?

Epic mile-muncher? Trail-centre hooligan? 29er XC race-weapon? 27.5+ bikepacking companion? Friend for life?

It would be quicker to say what bike you can’t create from our most versatile frame. This is the bike that comes closest to disproving the rule of N+1 – choose the Sherpa and you’ll never be left thinking, ‘Maybe I should have gone for a … ’.

The Sherpa is our do-what-you-like hardtail. This one’s a keeper.

Positive Engineering

The Stanton Sherpa, a 29er, maintains the nimble agility of smaller-wheeled bikes, thanks to our unwavering dedication to 'Positive Engineering'.

When confronted with new standards, we seek innovative engineering solutions that honor our principles without compromising geometry.

Witness this in the custom-designed yoke on the drive side, enabling remarkably short chainstays at just 435mm, ensuring lateral stiffness, and accommodating up to 2.5'' 29er or full 3'' 27.5+ tires.

For the Gen4 version we are offering UK steel (Reynolds 853) fabricated in Asia. The rear triangle comprises the same cold-worked Reynolds (this time in 525) tubing, striking the ideal balance between strength and flexibility. This design imparts the Sherpa with our distinct responsive feel, lively acceleration, and remarkable versatility.

We build the frame; you bring it to life.

Now in its fourth iteration, the Sherpa is our most refined model – designed for maximum efficiency and to make the most of every bit of effort you put in. It’s built to cover miles comfortably and keep you smiling throughout the ride. True to its name, the Sherpa excels at climbing, making ascents more enjoyable. This bike makes you feel fitter and stronger, giving you the confidence to tackle challenging terrain. Many riders around the world have set aside their full-suspension bikes, preferring the Sherpa for its exceptional performance and reliability.

No-one likes being pigeonholed and the Sherpa is no different – you define it, not us.

We can’t wait to see what you do with yours.
