STANTON Switch9er 29"
You want the velocity and capability that comes with big wheels. You want the fun and flickable nature of something smaller. You want to play with your mates on the local but you want to batter your nemesis on the downs.
It all comes together in the Switch9er – the ultimate enduro hardtail. The daddy of our playful Switch hardtail range, it’s a bike that does things it’s not supposed to, so you can do things you didn’t know you could.
Yeah the geometry’s progressive (isn’t everyone’s these days?) but it’s your riding that’s going to see the real progression. Whatever the Switch9er comes up against it won’t take no for answer, it’s just the way it’s built.
And how is it built? Let’s start with the CNC’d double-sided yoke on the chainstays – full of purpose. That’s providing the lateral stiffness you want to hit corners flat out and hold your line. It also means we can bring that rear wheel in, create nice short chainstays to make the bike whip through corners and let you pop that front wheel up. Study the BB drop; not too low, not too high. In the sweet spot that makes the most of a 29er’s innate stability but also means it leans willingly into corners. Then there are the materials. Choose from Taiwan-made 4130 chromoly steel or UK-made Reynolds 631.
THE RIGHT MATERIALS IN THE RIGHT PLACES TO MAXIMISE THE JOY
It’s why we use Reynolds 520 for the rear triangle on both frame options. Its blend of strength and compliance also adds to the Switch9er’s aggressive but playful character.
The geometry is based around a 140mm fork but this frame is strong enough to go full hooligan with 160mm on the front. In fact all our frames are certified for 10mm over these recommendations – we save the risks for the riding, not the engineering.
