Stanton Bikes- Switch FS CNC Rear Triangle

Stanton Bikes are a bicycle company specialising in hand built hardtail and full suspension mountain bikes. Their UK manufactured Switch full suspension range that combines a Reynolds steel front end with an aluminium rear triangle has gone on to sell large volumes globally and receive many accolades within the industry; with Enduro mtb magazine describing the bike as “an engineers dream, with tight tolerances and innovative features.”

We worked with Stanton Bikes to design and develop a series of fully CNC machined rear triangles for their critically acclaimed Switch FS range. One of the main aims of the project was to reduce the extensive number of manufacturing processes required to produce a conventional aluminium welded assembly. The product followed our iterative engineering design process, with the prototype currently undergoing extensive real world and ISO testing. We then use rider feedback and test result data to further optimise the design in FEA, striving for the perfect balance of stiffness and strength to weight that is tuned for product function and user experience.
