Deviate Introduces 150mm Version of High Pivot Highlander
Single chainrings have helped an awful lot... in defence of 1995 suspension designs ;)

@short-but-sweet: it's true. We actually have an Australian dealer who retails the frame for the same as us. They may even have stock - drop us a line and we can pass you on.

The downside of using the same carbon triangles with a different link for this bike, is that increasing the travel shortens the reach a little. Although the seattube is fairly short with full insertion for even 210mm droppers so lots of riders are sizing up on the 150.

@Bullit-Boy: once you change your address in check out to a US address it will take off the 20% UK sales tax that is included in the price you're seeing now. Our website should detect your location and change prices - but that's not appearing to work. There is no combination of frame and shock we sell that comes to more than $4000 USD.

In a design like this, it's important to consider the suspension kinematics when looking at angles. As said by @the666ner, HPP's have an extending wheelbase under suspension compression, maintaining stability. Additionally, under heavy braking the high anti-rise figure means the HA is maintained reducing the need for a slack HA. It's also worth bearing in mind our true seat angle (unlike most manufactures who have an effective angle quoted, with the true angle much slacker) means that for most riders the seat position is equivalent to a much steeper angle. A successful bike is a combination of angles and kinematics, not just about hitting a specific angle.

@twonsarelli: We're delighted you're getting on well with the Highlander and we absolutely agree with you that for the intended use of the Highlander the angles work great. Additionally, it's worth noting that the unique suspension kinematics which a high pivot point enables compliment these fairly "conservative" angles maintaining chassis stability and the HA under aggressive riding. I'd caution that a phone app won't provide an accurate measurement and your garage floor would have to be calibrated. However, measuring the fork leg won't provide an accurate HA. The angle is from the centre of the front wheel so the rake of the fork will affect the angle. This probably accounts for your slightly steeper reading than we quote. The angles we state in the geo chart are the result of measurements taken with the specified fork in our design software and therefore are extremely accurate.

If you are seeing a price above $4000 USD for any frame and shock combination, our store is including UK tax at 20%. Inputting your address in checkout as USA will remove this tax. We're working on ensuring that your country is detected and you see the appropriate prices before checkout. Apologies for confusion.

It is silent. See any review of the bike. Pinkbike reviewed the 140.

As we've said in other comments it's more like $4000 CAD for a frame with no shock including shipping. The GBP price is including UK sales tax at 20%>

@twonsarelli: All depends on tyres/forks etc. How have you "measured"?
