Built to do it all.
The Starling Cycles Swoop Trail combines 27.5″ wheels with 140mm travel and our hand-built steel frameset.
The little brother of our award-winning Murmur Enduro, the Trail is built to go anywhere and ride anything whilst putting the emphasis a little more on big grins than raw speed. From your favourite trail centre to a local enduro race to those big days in the hills the Trail will fly through it all.
That unmistakable ‘feeling’ of steel, the easy-to-ride nature of 27.5″, short-travel and perfect geometry make this a hell of a bike.
It’ll haul ass through rough, nasty terrain but remains lively and responsive to see you racing back up for another run (and another, and another).
Starling Cycles are made by real flesh-and-blood humans. The perfect blend of precision and passion.
Our frames are hand-crafted with quality, lightweight steel for an unmistakable feel and undeniable speed.
Our single-pivot suspension design eliminates complexity. A blast to ride and a breeze to maintain.
