(from £767.83 ex VAT)
GEN 3 UPDATE – UK frames arriving in 5 weeks. Taiwan made frames arriving at the end of July
The Sherpa frame is a serious mile-muncher, great for all day and weekend epics, while having geometry calculated to win races.
However when things get steep and tec don’t underestimate this frame. With its 435mm chainstays and 68 degree head angle when 25% in the sag of a 120mm fork, this frame will have you attacking the trail as it has the manoeuvrability and playful nature you’ve come to expect and love from Stanton frames.
The original design ethos of the Sherpa was to create a comfortable, springy, all day frame thats happy riding monstrously large loops in the Peak District, yet when you’re tired and flagging and situations get steep and technical the frame has the geometry to inspire confidence and help you ride it out.
Designed around the 29” wheel and the 27.5+” wheel platform, the Sherpa has our custom designed drive-side yoke that creates space in the chain stays to accommodate large volume, deep tread 2.4” tyres on 29” wheels or full 3” Plus tyres on super wide plus 27.5” rims, while not effecting the short 435mm chain stay length as we refuse to compromise our class leading geometries!

The Sherpa is the answer – now what’s the question?
Epic mile-muncher? Trail-centre hooligan? 29er XC-race weapon? 27.5+ bikepacking companion? Friend for life?
It would be quicker to say what bike you can’t create from our most versatile frame (though an EWS-winning rig might be a stretch). This is the bike that comes closest to disproving the rule of N+1 – choose the Sherpa and you’ll never be left thinking, ‘Maybe I should have gone for a … ’.
The Sherpa is our do-what-you-like hardtail. This one’s a keeper.

WE MAKE THE FRAME, YOU MAKE IT WHAT IT IS
Now in its third generation, the Sherpa is our most tightly-dialled offering – super-efficient and designed to harness every ounce of energy you put in. It’s why it’ll eat up the miles in comfort and always leave you smiling. It’s the kind of bike that instantly makes you feel fitter and stronger, we reckon it’s worth 3 months in the gym (disclaimer – no actual science was used in the generating of this fact).
When gravity gets involved this bike will back you up and let you hit the steep stuff with more confidence than you’ll believe. All over the world there are full-sus bikes gathering dust because their owner is addicted to their Sherpa.
No-one likes being pigeonholed and the Sherpa is no different – you define it, not us.
We can’t wait to see what you do with yours.
