Fergus Ryan - Privateer Enduro Rider
Time to get more laps

Details Engineered with Athletes
The development process of all Privateer Bikes has riders and racers at its heart to ensure each frame and bike has everything you need to race at the highest level. Athletes provide us with essential feedback; ranging from geometry to small, but important details such as cable routing to large highly-durable bearings. All these insights ensure your Privateer is honed for your full season of riding.
Hard Charging Geometry
Size specific chainstays give the same confidence inspiring stability across all frame sizes.
The new and updated compact EP801 motor paired with Shimano's 630Wh battery delivers up to 85Nm of power providing plenty of juice for training or thrashing.
One Piece Rocker
A one piece rocker link keeps alignment for long bearing life whilst increasing stiffness and strength.
Clean Cable Routing
Ease of access to the battery cavity means the E161 can run clean and secure internal routing to keep your cables quiet and protected.
Anodised Bash Guard
Our custom 4mm hard-anodised bash guard ensures you can ride with confidence, knowing that your bike won't suffer when you push the limits.
Alloy Not Plastic
We shield your 630Wh Shimano battery with Alloy, not plastic, giving the downtube a sleek yet tough aesthetic.
Builds confidence, enabling riders to push harder and faster. By reducing upper body stress on steep transitions, readiness and speed will increase during the timed stages.
Size-specific Rear Centres
Different chain-stay lengths tailored to each size keeps rider weight balance consistent and ideal for your height.
All Privateer frames and bikes come as standard with the most highly adjustable rear shocks and forks from leading suspension manufacturers. The suspension units in all Privateers feature their suppliers top damping cartridges with ride tuning abilities of high and low speed compression and rebound damping adjustments allowing riders to dial in a podium-worthy ride. Rear shocks on all our bikes undergo a custom tuning process by the shock manufacturer to suit the suspension damping curves to the Privateer kinematics
Privateer bikes utilise the proven capabilities of the Horst Link suspension design. The kinematics are tuned to provide a bump-eating mid stroke, supportive end stroke and with an efficient pedalling platform. The Horst Link Design inherently has a lower anti-rise compared to most single pivot and twin-link designs which improves traction under braking.
