Introducing …Unite Components

Introducing Unite Components – a brand new, homegrown British brand that has just launched its first products.


Unite – run by Andrew Cooper – is based in Shropshire and is proudly rider run. Unlike many new brands these days, Unite will be selling both online and direct to bike shops. You can either purchase direct from their website or drop in to one of their dealers for advice on what product works best and help with fitting.

We’re about to start testing their kit so we can’t offer any promise of quality or durability just yet – but Unite claim that they’re using leading CNC technology to create tough, great quality components. We’re looking forward to seeing what that means on the trails!
