The Claymore

The Claymore was a medieval Scottish two-handed great sword. Extremely long - typically the blade was over 140cm in length - the Claymore was more than merely a sword: it was a symbol of strength and martial prowess, and an unmistakable link to the rugged Scottish Highlands for whoever bore it.

Deviate’s Claymore is the same, born in the rocks and roots of the Scottish Highlands, and the weapon of choice for the most brutal terrain anywhere in the world. Whether you get your kicks from plummeting down the nastiest, root strewn drops, or hurtling between the tapes so fast things get blurry around the edges, the Claymore is the bike for you.

    Sorry this took so long wow wow.
    I can guarantee you that everyone involved, or works here; genuinely loves there job, mountain biking, and all the people around them.
    When people ask me how I like my claymore my only response is, "i have absolutely no interest in even sitting on a different bike"

    every single detail on this frame is above and beyond. from the finish of the paint, to the details of the linkage, seals, build quality. EVERYTHING. unbelievable detail. speaking as a professional mechanic +also worked as a world cup mechanic. this frame takes durability to the next level. wow again.

    how does it ride? uhhhhh have you seen the geo?? and the leverage ratio, axle path, anti squat etc?!?! dude?? its not what you think, its better. I cant explain something like this because its so off the rails incredible. previous owner of SC nomad (2), Megatower (3), and a SB150. racing is my focus. and this bike nails it. climbing is a dream, super comfortable bike to be on. extremely predictable, V E R Y composed at high speeds and rough trails. super fast through the turns. the best way i can word it is you "lose your sense of speed" kind of like driving while its snowing... comprehension of capabilities on a mountain bike were shattered for me. i didnt know it was possible to own a bike this good.
    yes, i paid full price, no discounts. from Apex bikes in canada (rad shop!!) and imported into US which was a nightmare haha. WELL worth every effort.
    astounded!! no exaggerations here, this bike beats it all in every category.
    what a blessing! thanks so much Deviate!!
    5 months on it now, but I feel I've been riding it for 5 years.

    Fantastic brand and bike

    After only a few rides I can say the Claymore lives up to the hype and the staff at Deviate is top Notch! The bike pedals well for an Enduro bike with almost no bob and is very good at technical climbing as well but of course it shines brightest descending chunky enduro trails.
