Kit Spec

This is the Highlander II - Deviate's all-carbon, all-conquering trail bike, freshly reconfigured for 2023. A bike for bike park laps, all day rides, messing about in the woods and everything in between. A bike for reaching the highest, most remote peaks, before screaming down the other side in a stream of speed and laughter.

PinkBike

If Deviate didn't make the Claymore, they'd be perfectly entitled to call the Highlander their trail and enduro bike. The high pivot causes the wheelbase to grow when you push into a corner and the bike stays low and level when hard on the brakes, which makes it feel even more stable and surefooted than the geometry numbers would suggest.”

GMBN

Top 5 trail bike of 2023. “This is a trail bike for those who like to push the limits on rougher terrain. It’s full 29er, full carbon, and it comes with fully sealed bearings and interestingly, grease ports too, so it should be faff free maintenance”

— Anna Cipullo/Owen Coutts

perfect for comfort

Any Trail, Any Time

"We’ve taken what we think is the best high-pivot trail bike on the market, and made it even better. A 65-degree head angle with a 160mm fork is steep enough to be nimble in the sketchiest of woodsy descents, but slack enough for stability when you break out of the trees into a steep, warp-factor-nine trail."

Deviate Highlander II FAQ

No, the bike and all the parts arrive unassembled and require a full build.

We suggest around 30% for most riders, but this will vary depending on terrain and personal preference.

No - a standard 126 link chain will work with even a 12 speed Shimano or Sram set-up.

ZS44/28.6 upper and a ZS56/40 lower headset cup.

Absolutely. We have two lower ISCG-05 tabs which allow the use of a lower guide/bash.

The Highlander 2 is not designed to work with 27.5” or 27.5”+ wheels. It is designed for 29” wheels.

We suggest a 160mm fork with a 44mm offset. A 51mm offset is compatible and will lead to a slightly more lively steering feel.

The Highlander 2 will work with most air shocks on the market - we recommend a mid-mid initial tune. We can’t guarantee that a specific shock will have clearance. The shocks available on our online store are all compatible. Please note that shocks with rear rebound adjustment may be problematic to adjust.
