Carbon Fibre Fun Hunter
Our most affordable carbon-framed mid-travel trail bike, the T-140C R, is lightweight, capable and ready to help you take your riding beyond. From fast and fun down-country-style rides, trail centre looping, long rides across the hills, or having fun on your favourite techy singletrack, the T-140C R is as playful to ride as it is performance-focused so you can ride far and have fun wherever the trail leads.
Why T-140C R?
Riding like the mountain bike love child of a monster truck and an F1 car, our award-winning mid-travel trail bike has rewritten the rules on what 27.5in wheels and 135mm of rear suspension can do. Whether you’re tackling techy trails or smashing out the miles on big rides, you can ride confidently and have a blast no matter where or how you ride.
Full-on fast and fun, the T-140C R’s lightweight carbon fibre front end boosts acceleration and accuracy for exhilarating responsiveness up any gradient, around every feature and out of every corner, while 140mm front travel with 135mm rear travel delivers you the ideal balance of rough terrain capability and control together with ‘ride all day’ efficiency and traction.
Our switchable Shape.It link also means you can adjust the geometry from its stock high setting to low to slacken the head angle out by 0.6º and reduce the bottom bracket height by 8mm for a more aggressive, gravity-focused ride character.
We’ve also tuned the T-140C R’s wide rim and tyre combination to engineer a ride that gives you greater grip, compliance and control when riding rough or technical terrain: 27.5in x 2.6in tyres have a rolling diameter like some smaller 29in tyres but, due to the wider and larger diameter of them, when paired with a wide rim (35mm internal width) the large air volume lets you run lower tyre pressures and significantly increase the compliance of your ride – perfect for keeping things cool, calm and collected on square-edged hits, as well as on traction-lite and off-camber sections for confident control and fun on every ride.
Features & Equipment
The entry level option of our two carbon-framed T-140C trail bikes comes with a ‘sorted right from the shop floor’ kit list that seamlessly blends value and performance.
Front and rear suspension is provided by RockShox’s impeccable Pike Select 27.5in suspension fork with the Charger RC damper and a 37mm offset together with RockShox’s Deluxe Select+ RT DebonAir rear shock.
Mechanical SRAM GX Eagle 12 speed gearing gives you sharp and crisp shifting together with the range to hammer the descents and spin back up, while SRAM’s reliably powerful Guide G2 R four-piston hydraulic disc brakes (with 180mm rotors front and rear) maximise braking control.
The triple compound Maxxis Minion DHF TR front tyre and Maxxis Dissector TR EXO+ rear combination put control and speed exactly where you need them to drive you forward and hold your lines.

Unique, fully sealed BBX63 internal cable and hose routing and seat post collar keeps controls silent, free of dirt and secure but easy to service – even through the worst conditions.
