    • Ragley Big Wig Hardtail Bike 2016

  • Ragley Big Wig Hardtail Bike

    Introducing the next generation Ragley Bigwig 29” Hardtail bike: Designed as a Trail/All Mountain/Enduro Race friendly bike, the Bigwig is built for those who want a versatile, go anywhere and ride everything kind of bike.

    It is at home on any terrain: from tearing up your local singletrack to back country adventures in the middle of nowhere, smashing out runs in the Alps or racing Enduro. It will help you push your limits and make you grin from ear to ear!

    Our complete Bigwig is a great value package that is ready for action straight out of the box thanks to a combination of great frameset with modern features, aggressive geometry and a well thought out selection of reliable components.


    The Bigwig frameset features ISCG 05 tabs, a 44mm headtube, a stiffer bolt through rear end using exchangeable dropouts which will allow you to run whichever standard you desire(142x12m or QR) and stealth dropper compatibility. It is engineered from custom triple butted 4130 chromoly steel tubing resulting in a frame that is lightweight and supple enough to provide comfort on longer trail rides whilst robust and stiff enough to take on an uplift day for some serious abuse!


    Geometry is taken very seriously at Ragley as it is the most important part of any bike’s personality. It defines the bike and ultimately dictates the way a bike will interact with you and the trail.

    The updated trail geometry has been designed to mimic the characteristics of a modern full suspension bike but obviously without the sag at the rear. This is why Ragley bikes seem slack when static. However once the rider is on the bike, the front suspension will sag, steepening the head angle by the desired amount.

    Designed with a 65˚ head angle (66.5˚at ride height) and a long top tube, the Bigwig is designed to run a short stem (Between 40-60mm) to give fine control and stability at high and low speeds, especially over rough and technical terrain. The low bottom bracket (Similar to a modern full suspension bike at Sag) and short chainstays maximise manoeuvrability, cornering, traction and playfulness whilst the steep seat angle puts the rider central on the bike ensuring climbing prowess.

    The finished result is a long, low, slack and planted feeling bike with excellent grip, impeccable trail handling and stability that inspires confidence at high speed and over steep/technical terrain.

    Build Kit

    Leading the way and smoothing the trail ahead is a pair of new Rockshox Yari RC forks which offer 130mm of bump-munching travel through a study chassis using 35mm stanchions and a 15mm bolt thru-axle to ensure accurate steering through the most challenging lines. The tried and tested Motion Control Damping and air-spring allow fine adjustment to suit any rider whilst keeping weight to a minimum.

    The Tubeless ready wheels are made up from WTB STI23 TCS Rims, laced to Bolt Thru-Axle Novatac hubs with surefooted stability provided by WTB tyres: an aggressive 2.3 Vigilante TCS – Light/Fast on the front and a fast rolling 2.25 Trail Boss TCS – Light/Fast Compound on the rear.

    Power is provided through a 2x10 speed Drivechain using Shimano SLX cranks, SLX shifters, Deore front derailleur and XT rear derailleur with a clutch to keep your chain in place and noise to a minimum. Once you are up to speed, dependable and powerful Shimano SLX hydraulic disc brakes will help keep you in control.

    The cockpit and contact points are ready for action with a wide 760mm Ragley Wiser bar and short 50mm Stubbing stem. For proper all mountain accessibility we have added the Nukeproof OKLO Air Dropper seatpost with 125mm of travel. To ensure comfort on even the longest of rides we have added the Ragley Tracker saddle.
