Built to party, pure and simple.
The Starling Cycles Twist Trail is our mini-mullet. 29″ wheel up front and a fast, fun 27.5″ wheel out-back.
With 140mm rear travel, mullet wheels and plenty of tyre clearance, it’s built to be an absolute riot on the trails. Acres of travel doesn’t always equal mountains of fun, and the Twist Trail proves it.
The 29″ front wheel offers a ton of stability for monster-trucking through rough terrain. The 27.5″ wheel will slash turns, whip through your tightest and techiest and guarantee that speed doesn’t leave behind fun.
