Privateer 161

No Compromise Enduro Race Frame | By TheRiderFirm.CC


Privateer bikes was founded on the idea of creating a bike that fits the needs and demands of its namesake. Progressive race-ready geometry combined with rider-focused features ensures the 161 can handle season’s worth of abuse

Developed with Top 20 EWS rider Matt Stuttard and the Enduro World Series in mind - The 161 features progressive geometry to descend as fast as possible, whilst reducing fatigue with a low effort climbing position. By reducing upper body stress on steep transitions, readiness and speed will increase during the timed stages.

Over the course of 18 months, the 161 was developed with Alastair Beckett, of Redburn Design, who has already designed EWS race-winning bikes. Mixing our passion and ideas with Ali’s experience, the recipe for a rider-focused bike was created.

Whilst working closely with Matt to ensure it's everything he needs to race at the highest level, he provided us with incredibly useful feedback; ranging from geometry to small (but important) details such as cable routing to clear race plates.
