Parkwood is here

Parkwood is here

Head of Design, Brant Richards, tells us about the Parkwood…

It’s here – our newest hardtail – the Parkwood.

Taking what we’ve learnt from riding 29ers, fun hardtails, and everything else we’ve been doing for the last 25yrs. Parkwood is our new hand welded 6061 aluminium trail weapon, launching with a killer trail-ready spec for £999 that suits beginner and advanced riders alike. From it’s trail tough, high performance Maxxis-made tyres, to it’s trail-centre essential Reverb seatpost (drop your saddle at the smooth touch of a hydraulic controlled button).

Parkwood has been a long time in development – after whooping up a storm on our Titus FirelineEvo29 frames, what we wanted to do with Parkwood was offer that same level of fun, but at an amazing price, with a build spec that was easy to put together and service (yeah, that straight seat tube on the Titus has it’s reasons, but it’s a bit fiddly for some front mechs).

We signed off the basic concept in the middle of July last year – you can see where, on our Instagram page - that shot is at the bottom of a secret trail I ride in Hebden Bridge - But then we revised things with front mech mounts, and tyre clearance, and really dug into the details to get the frame we have today. It takes ages!

We’re really happy with the Parkwood. We’re sure you will be too – and for a grand, we can’t see a better bike out there. Check that spec – from the Revelation RLT forks (where other people offer Sektors or lower), a Reverb as stock, proper trail tyres, not super hard OE carcasses. When we started on-one we wanted to offer people killer bikes at amazing prices. We think the Parkwood is just another step along that path, and just the start of another.

Complete bikes are here - and the frames are here
