This is an ex-demo bike that has seen some good use.
Transmitter is long, low, slack and fun.
Stability and control at high speed. Better stand over clearance. Climbs really well and makes the most of any traction.
The 65 degree slack head angle is designed around a 150 mm fork and a 35 mm stem. When combined with short seat stays and that flattened, longer top tube you get an agile and confidence inspiring ride whether riding steep mountain trails or shredding the local woodland singletrack.
Transmitter makes best use of available technologies. Boost 148/110 standards and bolt through hubs mean a stiffer and more responsive ride. 650b+ tyres on a tubeless compatible wheelset mean loads of grip and control, whether climbing or descending.

Transmitters are bikes that respond to hard riding. But mostly, they are to be ridden and enjoyed. Easy to ride and maintain, fast and lots of fun.
SizingIt is important to get the right size bike, if the bike fits it will be faster, more comfortable, and easier to handle. You can also take into consideration the standover height to ensure you pick a bike that will be a good fit. If you measure your inside leg and ensure there is a minimum of an inch from the toptube to your crotch this will give you enough seatpost adjustment to find your optimum saddle height. Generally we recommend:
- Riders between 5ft 2in and 5ft 7in
- Riders between 5ft 6in and 5ft 10in
- Riders between 5ft 9in and 6ft 2in
- Riders of 6ft 2in +

Hand welded 6061-T6 triple butted frameset
Not all tubes are equal, Transmitter uses tube walls of different thicknesses to get material where it is needed and save weight where it isn’t.
Dropper seatpost ready
The Transmitter frame is compatible with a dropper seatpost so even the most sheepish riders can tackle those steep sections head on like a pro.
Vertical compliance and lateral stiffness
The strikingly flattened top tube is the spoonful of black magic we need to make the frameset both rigid and forgiving in all the right places. Stable yet nimble, the geometry has been tweaked to give a spirited ride.
Internal cable routing
Clean lines and tidy cables thanks to fully guided internal routing.
Designed around Boost 148/110 standards and 650b 2.6/.8 tyres
Chain guide ready
Transmitter can be fitted with a chain guide. (ISCG 05 compatible).
