The Highlander II is offered as a frame only or with an Ohlins TTX2 Air shock.
The Ultimate Trail Bike, Evolved
This is the Highlander II - our 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.
"If Deviate didn't make the Claymore, they'd be perfectly entitled to call the Highlander their trail and enduro bike" - Seb Stott, Pinkbike

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. The reach is perfect for comfort when climbing, and roomy enough for flat out descending with ultimate control. Standover is enormous, and the continuous seat tube accommodates the longest dropper posts on the market. And the Highlander II is also available in 4 sizes, from Small to X-Large, to suit a wide range of riders.

Quality stuff, plenty of grease where it's needed, only got 2 rides in, but the bike felt awesome! only complaints would be the chain protection, it was already coming off when I received it, at such a boutique brand this shouldn't be an issue and the cable management on the bottom of the top tube. Basically if you are anyone outside of UK/New Zealand you'll have to figure a way with cables cause it only seem to make sense in a front brake right, rear brake left scenario. It works of course but not as clean as I'd like it to be. (cable management recommendations are welcome).
Team is friendly, great communication.
The quality is outstanding, from the aspect of the materials to the assembling.
The team is friendly and answer everything clearly. It’s a go
Definitely the sickest looking bike I’ve seen everything is perfect on it, so sick can’t wait to build it up
