Singletrack Magazine Review

“The suspension and drivetrain in combination have created a bit of a lightbulb moment for me. I reckon Deviate has created something pretty special. If this was from a big name manufacturer, riders would be falling over themselves to hand over their cash.”

Gearbox Drive

A 12 speed Pinion C-Line gearbox provides reliable shifting performance.

Huge Gear Range

A 600% range offers the ability to spin up the steepest hills or crank down the fastest singletrack! SRAM Eagle is 500%. 12 speeds with even 17.7% spacing ensure there is always the perfect gear for the terrain.

No Derailleur

No vulnerable rear derailleur saving expensive replacement costs and major inconvenience.

Shift while Stationary

No need to pedal to engage a gear – select your gear at anytime. Never get caught in the wrong gear again!

Fully Sealed Drive System

Hermetically sealed gearbox results in significantly less maintenance than a traditional drivetrain system.

Superb Handling

Mass is positioned low and centralised for optimal handling and cornering.

Improved Ground Clearance

A small front chain ring achieves a high degree of ground clearance.

Unrivalled Suspension Performance

Gearbox drive allows huge benefits in suspension performance to be realised. Better suspension allows you to go harder, faster and longer!

High Pivot Point

The Guide utilises a high pivot point which achieves a rearward axle path. This increases the compliance of the rear wheel as it can move away from impacts and square edged hits are absorbed more directly through the suspension maintaining forward momentum and improving traction. The rearward axle path allows the wheelbase of the bike to be maintained as suspension is compressed achieving consistent handling.

Zero Pedal Kickback

The design results in zero chain growth and therefore no pedal kickback. This allows continued and unimpeded pedalling through rough terrain. It also results in less fatigue on descents as legs do not have to absorb this pedal kickback.

Anti-Squat Optimised

As the gearbox based design maintains a constant chain line and chain length we can optimise the anti-squat characteristics across all gears. The system achieves approximately 110% anti-squat which results in a slight suspension extension under pedal input to increase grip on difficult climbs.

Low Un-sprung Mass

Using a gearbox shifts the drivetrain weight from the rear wheel to the centre of the bike, this reduces the un-sprung mass which results in more responsive suspension system.

Efficient Suspension

Unlike a derailleur (and particularly, a clutch rear mech) based system the suspension does not have to overcome chain tension.

Fully Sealed Bearings

We use top end Enduro double row, angular contact, max fill bearings on all pivot points. Furthermore all these bearings are situated behind twin lip wiper seals.
