        Fast and agile, Cortex is a trail riding, down-country, all terrain mountain bike for seriously epic days out. It comes alive on long technical descents with 120 mm rear travel, big wheels and a stiff responsive frame.

        With bang up to date geometry, Cortex is confidence inspiring with a playful character. Stand up and mash on the pedals out of turns, manual sections of trail and pop off tree stumps, rocks and roots. Smash out short and loose technical climbs, flat out descents and tight techy singletrack sections. The harder you push the bigger you grin.

        At a glance

        • Shimano Deore M6100 12-speed groupset
        • Rockshox Recon Silver RL fork
        • Rockshox Deluxe Select+ shock
        • Sonder Nova 29" Uk made wheelset

        Cortex frameset is hand-welded from 6061 double butted aluminium with a tapered ovalised top-tube and large section down-tube for a stiff chassis with just enough compliance to get you out of trouble. 66 head angle, 74.5 seat tube angle, 40 mm bottom bracket drop and a 465 mm reach (size large). Cortex’s dialed in geometry and 2.6" tyre clearance offers a comfortable and efficient climbing position for big miles and a stable, spirited platform for smashing up descents.

        Why Deore?

        Shimano drivetrains are designed, engineered and manufactured to work as complete drivetrain systems. Shimano's new microspline hub means that you can run a 10 tooth cassette for a huge gear range. The new EV shifters and brakes provide loads of adjustment to get the perfect position as well as a rock-solid feel on the bars.

        Geometry and Sizing

        Sizing

        It 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:
        Small: Riders between 5ft 2in and 5ft 7in (157-170cm)
        Medium: Riders between 5ft 6in and 5ft 10in (167-177cm)
        Large: Riders between 5ft 9in and 6ft 2in (175-187cm)
        X-Large: Riders of 6ft 2in + (187cm)
