The new Deviate Claymore ups the Highlander's 150 mm travel to 165 mm, lengthens the reach and kicks out the head angle to 64.3 degrees (with a 170 mm fork). The Deviate engineers have carefully set the carbon lay up for maximum strength without unnecessary weight. This frame is built to run a 170 or 180 mm fork.

Deviate were ahead of the pack when it comes to high pivot bikes! Back in 2016, there weren't many bikes available when the first Deviate frame, the "Guide" was launched. Now it seems like everyone has woken up to the wonders of high pivot bikes!

At 20Twenty, we've been on board since the launch of the Highlander, and we're all converts to the wonders of high-pivot mountain bikes.

Why High Pivot?

In short, moving the rear suspension pivot up changes the axle path. When the rear wheel hits something and moves up, it also moves back, so the suspension action doesn't have the same slowing action as it does on a bike with a pivot in the normal location. The effect is that high pivot bikes don't feel like they are slowing when riding over rough ground.

Pedalling efficiency is not noticeably affected by the addition of the pulley required, and the pulleys are long-lasting and reliable.

Mountain Bikes Conceived and Tested in Scotland

The Highlands are almost literally at the front door of the Deviate Cycles HQ near Stirling. Founders Ben and Chris have classic riding spots like Torridon within easy reach, and the famous Tweed Valley trails are an hour and a half or so away. Scotland has a mix of big mountain descents, trail centres and world-class enduro trails, all of which are regularly as muddy as it's possible to be. People often say that any bike that can deal with Scottish mountain biking will be up to being ridden anywhere.

Awesome International Service on a Deviate Claymore Frame

I am in Oregon, USA of all places - these guys are in the UK. I had a handful of questions about the Deviate Claymore frame (let's also not forget, no one has these available... especially in an XL in GREEN!) and they were so patient with me. I also had some questions about exchange rates and international shipping import fees, etc. They handled it so well.

The frame showed up and was so well packed. Honestly, flawless experience, even from abroad. I built the bike up and have ridden it twice. It is probably the most fun and exciting bike I have ever ridden. I've ridden a lot. I am not saying that because it's new and we all seem to ride that high for a few weeks. It's hands down the best looking bike, the most fun bike and the most exciting mountain bike I have ever owned.

Lewis is the one who helped me - so thank you Lewis and others who made the experience so enjoyable. I would highly recommend 20Twenty.

Fantastic Product

Having come from a Highlander 150 I knew I would receive a high quality, well designed and manufactured frame and, needless to say, I'm not disappointed. The subtle geometry changes and the increased travel are noticeable, culminating in a really well thought-out and versatile enduro machine. Customer service from Ben at Deviate and Lewis at 20Twenty has been second to none.
