HIGHLANDER


THE ULTIMATE ONE BIKE QUIVER

The Highlander, conceived and tested in the wild Highlands of Scotland, is an all-conquering warrior of a bike.

Designed from the ground-up with the sole focus of creating the world's most capable trail bike. The Highlander is equally at home covering ground on an epic journey across a mountain range or smashing out laps at your local bike park.

The all-carbon Highlander boasts 140mm of rear travel, 29" wheels, balanced geometry and a progressive leverage curve. Thanks to the high pivot point suspension design - the 140mm of rear travel has descending capabilities, especially when pushed hard, that rival bikes with far more rear travel.

The effect of the high pivot point on the trail is profound. The resulting rearward axle path moves the rear wheel away from impacts maintaining forward momentum. There is a reason that high pivot bikes are dominating downhill racing at the moment. Using a chain idler allows precise optimisation of the suspension characteristics for potent climbing, calibrated for pedalling efficiency without compromising downhill performance. Anti-squat is controlled precisely with the idler placement and pedal kickback is negligible.

The all-rounder nature of the Highlander is carried forward with the balanced geometry, plenty of stand-over and the ability to run a super-long dropper defines the Highlander’s character as playful, composed, and most importantly, a confidence inspiring trail bike. This is a bike built to put a smile on your face wherever the trail takes you.

“Trail bikes should be versatile, ready-for-anything machines, and most of them are exactly that. But, push come to shove, most of that versatility extends towards tamer, pedal-intensive riding. On the contrary, the Highlander's versatility extends in the opposite direction, which will let you point it down more intensive lines than most trail bikes would be okay with. If that's how you want to spend your rides, the Highlander is ready.”

“Riders considering purchasing a Deviate Highlander, will undoubtedly be looking for something different and probably already understand the benefits and potential pitfalls of a high-pivot suspension system. Deviate has managed to package a super smooth suspension system inside a frame that hits a sweet spot between stability and playfulness. Effortlessly easy and intoxicatingly fun to ride fast, the Deviate Highlander is a superb trail bike for someone who does not want to follow the crowd.”

“Is the Highlander the world’s most capable trail bike? It certainly outshone this year’s “Trail Bike of the Year” line-up on the descents.”
