This beautiful example of a titanium Tarn code name: “Tarntanium” comes into the line-up for 2018. After many requests over the past two years we now have the daddy of all 27.5+ frames. Spec it with either 27.5+ or standard 29" wheel/tyre combo for ultimate trail versatility. It'll happily take a top swing or side swing FD, comes with a shim for either a comfy 27.2mm rigid post or new-fangled 31.6mm dropper along with a port for stealth dropper routing. A new 120mm suspension corrected, full carbon fork. It has boost spacing front and rear (110x15/148x12mm) and a lightweight bolt up type rear axle. Both Shimano direct and old type hangers are included along with a sealed bearing headset to round up the carefully considered details.

A dedicated 27.5+, fully rigid platform (conventional 29" compatible) that comes a whole host of benefits; same air volume as the 29+ setup but in a lighter (both rim, tyre and tube), faster accelerating, more manoeuvrable package that will fit a wider range of folk, especially at the smaller end of the size spectrum, without sacrificing geometry or standover. The rugged Shimano Deore 2x10 drivetrain will take you, fully laden to the furthest flung corners of the world and the efficient, fast-rolling 2.8" WTB Trailblazer's are tubeless-ready and ripe for the upgrade. With no-stone-left-unturned we've even bundled the bike with a couple of Free Parable's excellent Gorilla cages - allowing you to carry pretty much anything (1.5kg limit) that'll fit into their hugely adjustable cradle.

The Longitude, our dedicated 27.5+, fully rigid platform (conventional 29" compatible) is just as at home zipping through the singletrack as it is fully loaded, exploring the mountainous backcountry.

The frame comes with a fully sealed headset and we even include a pair of Free Parable Gorilla cages.
