Available in UK made Reynolds DZB tubing or in Taiwanese triple butted heat treated 4130

GEN 3 UPDATE – UK frames estimated production finish (to then be painted to chosen colours) in 5 weeks. Taiwan made frames arriving at the end of July

The Switch9er Steel is the perfect race-pace Enduro Hardtail. Super stable at pace and in the air, with cornering capabilities you’d expect from a smaller wheeled bike!

With aspects taken from the Switchback and the Sherpa, the Switch9er is the evolution of our industry-leading modern geometry. It’s a super aggressive 29er that bares all the hallmarks of being a Stanton to the core.

We used the laterally stiff, custom drawn, Birmingham manufactured Reynolds DZB (dual zone butting) 631 air hardened tube set and Yoke from the Switchback to give the Switch9er the same fast pace NS instant power transfer as the Switchback. However, the climbing capacity of the Switch9er is akin to the Sherpa, our all day epic Trail/XC frame.

The original aim of the Switchback was to design the most playful natured and confidence inspiring aggressive frame that we possibly could. This ethos has now been rolled into this 29 inch wheel version.

The 428mm chain stay length plus the bottom bracket height, head angle and reach measurement gives you an amazingly responsive and agile ride. This frame rails corners and descends like no other hardtail and we firmly believe that this is the best Euro Hardtail on the market.
