The HUP xc is a lightweight hardtail MTB for cross-country racing, trail smashing or adventure fun times. Born and raised at the UCI MTB World Champs in Glentress, Scotland in 2023, it's a double-butted 7005 frame with boost thru-axles, UDH hanger and XC race-focused geometry. A rocketship of a bike for riders age 7+

  • Progressive Geo: low standover, slack 67º fork, short stays and 100mm or 120mm forks
  • Full Size Wheels: 27.5" (13") or 29er (15", 17" 7 19") running up to 2.4" tyres
  • Lightweight: double-butted 7005, UDH hanger, 4 sizes with builds as light as 9.5kg

Lightweight for the climbs, but still capable of the technical descents found in modern cross-country trails. The low standover/low stack gives riders the space to move on the techy sections and keeps their shoulders down on the faster sections. Big wheels, latest progressive geometry (short chainstays, 67 degree fork angle) and correct fitting components create an agile, responsive and seriously fun bike. The squad has had a riot testing and developing the HUP xc in the Glentress forest, near Peebles.

With 4 frame sizes covering riders from approx 125cm up to approx 185cm tall, you can move their components to a larger frame as they grow, just like all HUP bikes. Parents also benefit from component sharing (life is simple with everyone on the same size wheels!) and makes future upgrades much easier too

A low maintenance design with full length outer (internally run) cabling (including the option to fit a dropper post) plus the latest standards such as Boost thru-axles, 2.4" tyre clearance and a tapered head tube - ensures future compatibility. SRAM's Universal Deraillieur Hanger (UDH) also brings the ease of a widely available hanger, plus the ability to fit the very latest AXS Transmission type groupsets. Full-power shifting on the flat-top chain is awesome, we love it.

Included with this frame: frame, headset, mech hanger, thru-axle & cable fittings. HUP frames are handmade/painted in Taiwan. Frame protection tape is highly recommended.
