Speed without sacrifice: Deviate Claymore Frameset

Deviate wanted the Claymore to be the best handling, long-travel enduro bike out there. It’s the perfect combination of blindingly fast, slot-car accurate in the corners and capable of long climbs.

The design brief was to create an enduro bike capable of winning on the toughest of enduro stages, with pedal performance to match a trail bike and an element of playfulness for those days when you’re not between the tape.

The Deviate Claymore was a medieval Scottish two-handed great sword. Extremely long - typically the blade was over 140cm in length - the Claymore was more than merely a sword: it was a symbol of strength and martial prowess, and an unmistakable link to the rugged Scottish Highlands for whoever bore it.

Deviate’s Claymore is the same, born in the rocks and roots of the Scottish Highlands, and the weapon of choice for the most brutal terrain anywhere in the world. Whether you get your kicks from plummeting down the nastiest, root strewn drops, or hurtling between the tapes so fast things get blurry around the edges, the Claymore is the bike for you.

Choo Choo - All aboard the high pivot train

To achieve this seemingly impossible brief, Deviate once again turned to a high pivot point suspension system that is now a feature of their entire line up, as well as featuring in the line up of many other manufacturers. The Deviate Claymore Frameset is arguably the best on the market.


Deviate designed the Claymore to be confidence inspiring, no matter what the terrain.

The unique kinematics of a high pivot point design maintains chassis stability and geometry under heavy braking. This allows the Claymore to offer stability, while maintaining sensible geometry.

Of course, the head-angle is slack, the reach is long and the seat tube is steep, to help with climbing. But it’s not too steep; not too slack; not too long. Not every enduro track or riding spot is the same, so we’ve designed the Claymore to hit the sweet spot where flat-out stability and snake-like agility meet


Frame details

Deviate has used the same high pivot platform first seen on the Highlander trail bike and kicked it up a gear.

The frame has been meticulously laid up so it’s strong enough for the toughest terrain. Featuring fully sealed bearings with twin lip wiper seals and grease ports. After all, this is a bike designed to be ridden, and ridden hard, in the very worst conditions.

Leveraging an advantage

The Claymore's leverage curve has been carefully designed to provide a supple initial stroke, before becoming more progressive towards the end of the travel; comfort when you want it and control when you need it.

The Highlands of Scotland

Deviate Cycles, as a Scottish bike manufacturer, has developed and tested the Claymore in the rugged Scottish Highlands. The huge variety of terrain and challenging conditions make Scotland the perfect testing ground for any bike. As the saying goes "if it works in Scotland, it works anywhere".
