Announcing the all new COTIC BFe...


Right from its introduction in 2005, the BFe has always been the tearaway of the Cotic family. The Soulís stockier, rowdier younger brother. You know the one Ė loads of fun, but a bit on the wild side? Thatís the BFe. Re-invented for its 5th generation, the latest BFe takes the biggest step forward in geometry and features since it was first launched. During our focus on the droplink full suspension bikes over the last couple of years, we got to wonderingÖ what would a hardtail with Rocket style geometry be like? The answer is here in the new BFe: Itís longer, slacker, lower and more capable than ever. And fast. Itís so, sooooooooooo fast!


The new BFe comes in a choice of three fast finishes...

CyanBlack with Orange and AquaCMYKCyan

Head on over to the gallery on the product page to see more photos of the new BFE.

Welcome to Cotic Bikes

We make bikes we love to ride; it sounds simple and obvious, but it's true. It all started in 2003 with the Soul - our now legendary trail hardtail. Our founder and frame designer Cy Turner wanted a strong, light, fun, durable steel hardtail which could use long forks, big tyres and proper brakes. No one made one at the time, so he designed his dream bike and founded Cotic to share that with other riders. We're still doing that today; making durable, beautiful, amazing feeling bikes we love to ride, and designing our dream bikes to share with you.

Our bikes are designed and developed in Sheffield and the Peak District in the UK with diligence, passion and pride. We back that up with honest, accurate customer service and a great warranty. We are a truly independent bike company, still owned by Cy, not some 'little guy' front to a big distributor or corporation.

Most of our range is made from steel. We like steel. Especially the incredibly strong, tough and air hardening Reynolds 853. It's durable, feels great to ride and has a grace of appearance and clean lines which we love.

If you're looking for full suspension bikes, our droplink range of unique steel full suspension bikes takes in everything from lively trail bikes in the Flare and FlareMAX, or our blazingly fast enduro bikes, the Rocket and RocketMAX.

If you're looking for amazing steel hardtails, our iconic range of bikes will have something for you. The original and best Soul, the engaging and playful 27.5" wheel trail bike. For rowdier riders, our BFe takes a slightly more direct approach. If it's big wheels that keep you rolling, then take a look our our incredibly versatile SolarisMAX which can run either 29" or 275 Plus wheels.

If you're wondering what all this MAX thing is, it's our name for the bikes which have 29er or 27.5 Plus wheel compatibility. They'll do both, for maximum versatility and fun.

Last, but no means least, is our Life Bikes, the flat bar Roadrat or drop bar Escapade. As the name suggests, they're the bikes for fitting into your life; commuting, gravel rides, to the shops, to the hills, to that quiet place. The Roadrat is one of the original flat bar, disc brake road bikes, while the Escapade runs drop bars for tackling rough tarmac and epic steel gravel bike missions. It does everything your mountain doesn't. They're tough, versatile, comfortable and look fantastic. This is why you need a Life Bike.

On top of our bikes, we like to give back where we can. We volunteer for the local Ride Sheffield trail advocacy group, and we donate 0.5% of our turnover each year to trail projects. This has included resurrecting a local pump track, helping get the first ever Crowd Funded MTB trail built - Blue Steel at Lady Cannings Plantation near Sheffield - and continuing to help the local MTB community get more trails opened and built. We have also just announced our grass roots Development Squad, where we will support a few young riders each season to learn from our Race Team and get some help with kit and bikes, and just get involved with their enthusiasm to rides bikes.

So that's us in a nutshell. Have a look around, make yourself at home. If you have any questions drop us a line anytime on or call 07970853531. If you have a few minutes to spare, we love making great videos too, so head over to our videos page and find out about Rocketman and his feud with Straightline.

Thanks for dropping by.
