Patrol Launches a New Range of Carbon Trail Hardtails - Across The Pond Beaver

Sep 10, 2020
by Ed Spratt  

After launching two carbon hardtails for kids earlier this week, Patrol has now announced their new C09 range of carbon trail hardtails.

Patrol have designed their new range of hardtails with geometry inspired by their 691 enduro bike and they claim it is "light enough to take on your next XC ride, but bold enough to hang on the back wheel of full-suspension enduro bikes." The C09 isn't just your standard hardtail design as it comes with a few nifty features to separate it from similar offerings.

The main unique feature is the internal cable routing which instead of usual standard ports in the frame all the cable are sent through the headset. The cable then goes through the frame as standard. One of the other hidden features on the C09 is a spare derailleur hanger that can be found in the downtube. This isn't unique to Patrol but it is great to see it on more bikes to help save a potentially ride ending issue. The frame also includes an integrated chain guide. Their 'enduro' inspired geometry on the Patrol 09 means you get a 67° head tube angle, 74° seat tube angle and a reach of between 425 to 500mm.


The hidden derailleur hanger and the headset routed cabling makes this bike more unique than it would first seem.

 I love how the cheaper model uses the better drivetrain.
Hey @SramMedia its time to retire the SX drivetrain (you never should have made it to begin with).

 That cable routing is nifty. Need an exploded view of that. Not sure if its good, but its cool. I'll be in the shed seriously considering drilling holes in things.

 I also can't tell if they sell to the US. Have a friend looking to buy a bike with a sub 2k budget. The base model C093 looks like a winner for him.

 So how much is "light enough to take on your next XC ride“ in pounds? The headset cable routing has been used in raid bikes for years. It works fine.

 What are the 'similar options' at the moment? Carbon Chameleon?

 Are these available in the USA or Canada

 Routing the hose and housing through the headset is ugly as f*** and offers zero benefit
  • 2 0
 No holes in the frame is a benefit.

 @davemays: when's the last time a carbon frame broke at the cable port? I've been working on high-end mountain bike a long time and have never seen that.
