Marley - RRP £1249.99

Colour Options


We introduce the Ragley Marley! The Marley features our new trail geometry and is based around our Piglet frame but features custom hydroformed triple butted 7005 T6 series aluminium. Building on the success of our earlier Piglet we have retained our innovative features such as the 3 Finger Bridge and our Taperlite seattube. The slacker than average head angle and inclusion of ISCG 05 tabs hint at this bike’s true intentions for getting lairy on the trails and hammering the descents!

The Marley uses the 44mm headset standard which permits the use of headsets from Cane Creek, Nukeproof and others to accommodate all steerer tube configurations. With the right headset, this frame can take a 1.125in, tapered or 1.5in fork.
We recommend Nukeproof headset models - 44IESS and 44IISS (standard), 44IETS (tapered) or 44EEOS (1.5in steerer).

Our revised geometry retains the head angle of 67deg yet drops the bottom bracket height to lower your centre of gravity and inspire confidence through the rough stuff.  When coupled with a mid to long travel fork, the improved geometry results in impeccable trail manners, handling and stability which should see you go up, along and down faster than ever before!

Complete bike builds feature a RockShox Sektor 140mm fork with SRAM X7 shifters and derailleurs. Avid Elixir1 hydraulic disc brakes will help control your speed when the trail points down with surefooted stability provided by high volume Maxxis High Roller tyres. 
Ragley finishing kit completes the build with bars, stem, seatpost, grips and saddle.
