We told you a while back that Stanton Bikes were working on a dedicated 4X frame with the help of their team rider Luke Limbrick, and now the fruits of their labour are finally available to you guys.

Dan Stanton will be popping one over to us for test in the next few weeks, but in the meantime here’s Dan to fill you in on the details of this new frame…

The Stanton 4X frame is designed in collaboration with Luke Limbrick, UK National 4X champion 2011 and international 4X racer.

The things that we look for when designing the 4X frame was a snappy, smooth and confidence inspiring ride.

We decided to use double butted, aerospace grade 4130 chromemoly as the steel really dampens the vibration of rough rock gardens, making it possible for you to go faster through sections most riders take the wide line round.

With its 400mm tapered, butted and externaly braced Chainstays the frame feels super stiff through the bottom bracket, with very minimal lateral flex, aiding burst acceleration out of the gate or out of the corner.

With Luke’s imput we’ve been able to produce a class leading race specific 4X frame which I think you’ll agree, is finished to true Stanton Bikes quality.

    Weight?

      It’ll be somewhere around the 5lb/2.3kg mark, because frames like that always are!

    It’s great to see that bike manufacturers are still into producing and developing quality hardtails with the all important ride characteristic that you only get from steel.
    Looks like a great bit of versatile kit, from down the track to in the woods.

    There aren’t many hardtails that ‘do it’ for me, but that is one good looking bike… phannnnnnarrrr…..

    damn. that thing is begging for me.

    bugger me that is so nice. I’m skint but might sell a kidney for one.

    So I scrolled to the bottom of this expecting a price tag around £500-600 because that is what nice 4x frames seem to go for. I mean just look at a yeti DJ. £375 seems quite reasonable when you compare it to the competition.
