Description

Just two years ago we announced that Hornet had become even more hardcore. But it happens again for 2020! Slacker head tube, longer toptube, lower BB, XLarge size added, and all that in Boost standard! Hornet is no longer a beast. This is a monster!

Looking to run fork with 180mm travel? Here you are! Triple crown fork? Why not! Drops, jumps, downhills and freeride is a walk in the park for the new Hornet. As with all of the Dartmoor’s range versatility is key design brief.

The Hornet is capable of running up to 2.8” tires on 27.5” rims! Sharing the same front triangle tubes as our Roots Downhill bike the Hornet really packs a sting! And last but not least – a very fresh looking stickers pattern with different shapes of ferns for even better assimilation with sourrounding environment. We almost forgot – you will find now even bottle cage mounts :).

Great frame for the money

I wanted to build a play bike for some DH, PARK and Street that didn't cost a fortune. I paired this with some 160mm rockshox 35's and feels spot on. You can pay a fortune for frames by the likes of Nukeproof, etc but paying the extrad for the name. The hornet is well made, looks good with chunky build and modern geometry and you get a lot of frame for sub £300. I am 6ft 2 inches and opted for a medium as wanted something I can chuck around. I have a large 2020 primal 27.5 frame that I use for build an XC rig and find for me these sizings work for me

Great geomerty for fun and descend !

I'm very satisfied of this bike. I'M 190sm and XL frame fits me perfect. With RockShox Lyrik 160mm and Minion 27.5/2.6 on Cruiser 35mm bike feels very nice. One level slower than my previous XC , but no way :) Great !

awsome 27.5 jump bike

If you want a DH/Park bike that runs larger than 24/26" wheels then look no further. After building with rockshox 35's and SRAM groupset this is a weapon. I am 6ft 2inch and went for medium for a playful bike for bmx/jump track and a bit of trials riding, better geometry than the primal if you want an aggressive bike and build yourself with a great cost effective frame that delivers modern features/specs

Beautiful AM/FR/EN hardtail frame

Geometry is spot on for having fun on the descents. I'm 181cm tall and XL size fits me nicely with a 40mm stem. I built this frame with a 160mm Pike fork and 2.6 Minion DHFs tyres. Colour (matte black) is beautiful, albeit the ferns artwork is a bit darker than shown on Dartmoor website. Customer service from 26Bikes was excellent, they always replied to my emails within 1 day.
