The Bitmap Trail is a proper hardcore hardtail. A strong, stiff alloy frame, aggressive geometry and dialled build kit. If you're after a fast trail bike, look no further.  

The Bitmap frame uses our own specification 6061-T6 alloy tubing. There are gussets in all the right places and a custom CCN chain stay yoke that gives bags of space for a 2.6" tyre. The CNC shares the same CNC dropouts as the Edit, but with Boost 12x148 spacing and our own Airdrop CNC stealth axle. Short chainstays (420mm) mean you can rail it through berms with ease whilst the head-angle is slack enough (65°) to handle the steeps comfortably. Super low standover on all sizes means you can fit a 150mm or 170mm dropper, and choose your size based on reach.

The Bitmap Trail might be the most cost-effective build in our range but there are no corners cut. There's a proper fork - Rockshox Revelation 140mm, and a Reverb dropper with the new 1x remote. There's a Descendant 35mm bar/stem combo and it even has a Hope Technology wheelset. As ever we've specced decent tyres; WTB Vigilante and Trail Boss, with the Tough casing and High Grip compound. It's a great spec rounded out with an NX 1x11 groupset and Level TL hydraulic discs. 

In a market crowded with very average alloy hardtails, the Bitmap stands out. Designed by us in Sheffield, it's fast, fun and completely dialled.

  • The Bitmap hardtail frame was designed in Sheffield and developed on trails throughout the UK. As with all our bikes, it's built to be simple but effective. It's also fully up to date, with a Boost 12x148mm rear axle (included), integrated 180mm brake mount, a threaded BB shell and stealth dropper compatibility. Plenty of clearance for 2.6" tyres.

    If you have any questions regarding compatibility, please contact us.

  • We often get asked these questions so we've put together some quick answers for you. More information is available on our Tech Pages, Shipping and Warranty Pages.

    How long does it take to build a bike?
    Normally around a week for a standard bike. If you have custom options it can take longer but we make this clear in your custom build quote. Things can be a little slower at busy times, but we keep you posted on progress.

    Can I make changes to the build kit?
    Yes. All our bikes are built to order so we’re happy to customise for you. The best thing to do is contact us and we’ll produce a custom build quote for you.

    Can I have a different length dropper post?
    We put a 150mm Stealth Reverb on as standard, but if you’d rather have a 125mm or a 170mm Reverb, no problem. Contact us after you’ve placed your order to discuss.

    How much does shipping cost?
    Shipping costs vary depending on what you order and where you live. Take a look at our Shipping Page for more information.

    The size & colour I want is out of stock. Can I preorder?
