Jeht

  • 29" wheeled all-rounder
  • 140mm rear travel
  • 150mm fork

The Cotic Jeht is our genre-defying, do everything, 140mm 29er steel full suspension bike

The Jeht is a quiver killer. The swiss army knife of the droplink range. If you need one bike to do all your mountain biking, this is it. 140mm rear travel paired perfectly with a 150mm fork on trail crushing 29 inch wheels, the Jeht is a bike with a spring in its step that's always got your back.

Splicing the accurate handling of the FlareMAX with a solid dose of RocketMAX speed makes the Jeht a perfect all rounder. The bespoke Reynolds 853 mainframe is decked out with our longshot geometry, in a package that is just as happy zipping round your local trail centre as it is slaying alpine singletrack or Lake District passes.

Did someone say perfect trail bike?



The Jeht is released with a Launch Edition of no more than 30 UK made frames in the fabulous Afterburner or Matte Teal colours.

If you miss out on these, then our series production Taiwan made version will arrive in February 2021 in Mercury Rave and Matte Blue Steel colour options, at a slightly lower price point.

You can reserve any of the options right now. Click Here to Order



We can't currently offer the demo service, but we believe in our bikes. So much so that if after a month of riding you don't like it, send it back for a refund.

Details and Tech

Click on the tabs below...



The Jeht is a new addition to the Cotic range. After the success of the Limited Edition, longer travel FlareMAX 132 back in 2019, and once the RocketMAX Gen3 bumped up its travel and capability, we felt there was room in the range for a great all rounder which combined the all day, any terrain intentions of the FlareMAX with a little more travel and capability.

The Jeht introduces a new long link droplink kinematic which keeps the progression curve more consistent through it's travel, and also increases the seatpost insertion by 15 - 20mm compared to the other 29er droplink bikes.

The final new feature is the way we're introducing this model. For the first time we are producing a limited run of UK made frames, of which there will only be a maximum of 30, ahead of receiving a full batch of Taiwan made frames in early 2021.

Cotic Longshot Geometry, Longshot geometry, progressive geometry, mountain biking, enduro mountain biking, trail riding, mountain bike, full suspension mountain bike, 29er, 29 inch wheels, 27.5 inch wheels

Radical Longshot geometry keeps the bike stable through the rough stuff, planted in the corners and pinpoint accurate in the steep tech. Couple a super short 35mm stem to the optimised head angle and the bike really pushes you on, looking for every stump to boost off, rock to gap and berm to rail, keeping you connected to the trail while maintaining incredible poise and composure.

Reynolds 853

Reynolds 853 builds a light, lively and fantastically robust front end, and includes our custom ride tuned Ovalform top tube, and new for Gen3 our exclusive HD down tube, which helps to deliver that famous ride feel. The frames' steel construction is compliant and naturally ground moulding, extracting grip and feedback from the trail where you thought there was none.

Why Big Wheels?

Cotic Jeht frames use 29 inch wheels. MAXimum speed, MAXimum rollover.

29inch wheels roll easy and give a lot of stability, confidence and speed in rougher terrain, at the expense of being a little heavier and less playful than regular 27.5" wheels.

The way the MAX frames are packaged around the larger wheels (longer rear end, longer wheelbase, taller front end) can suit the proportions of a taller rider better, this will minimise any potential drawbacks, as a taller rider tends to have long enough arms and legs to move the bike around easily. Whatever height you are, if you're after more speed and stability from a bike, then the big wheels are the way to go.

droplink
Cotic Droplink suspension is supportive and progressive, keeping the 140mm travel Jeht feeling lively and interactive, with grip to spare on the descents, support and traction on the climbs.

We Build Your Bike For You

All Cotic bikes are assembled in the UK from and frame up. We have set build specifications - Silver, Gold and Platinum - but these are just the start. Want the Silver spec bike with tubeless tyres? Easy! Want a SRAM brakes instead of Shimano on your Jeht? No problem! Full colour matched Hope parts, and add the matching brakes too? It's a click away, and everything else in between. If it's not a choice on the order form, just ask.

When you contact us you are talking to the people who design the frames and will be building your bike. We check it and build and pack it in our award winning bike boxes with the same care we would our own bike, because we know how important it is. We build your bike, for you.

Bikes are now available worldwide, with free shipping to UK, Ireland, Europe, USA and Canada.

We have several levels of stock build which are based around our favourite parts in builds you can trust. We never specify anything we haven't ridden, tested and enjoyed. However, just about everything in your build can be customised to help with fit (contact us if you need help) or to personalise your bike. Want a different fork? Shock? Brakes? Wheels? Tyres? Bars? Stem? Longer drop seatpost? Women's saddle? Colour matched Hope components? No problem. It's your bike.

All the bikes are assembled from a frame right here in the UK by us. We can do everything from bare frame to complete bike: Send us your favourite saddle and grips to fit. Send us your wheels if you have a nice pair you want to use. There's no point you getting kit you don't want. It's wasteful. That gives you almost limitless options to customise and tune your bike to your needs. If you can't see an option you'd like on the order form, get in touch. We all know it's good to head off piste sometimes!

ORDER YOUR FRAME

The chart is a guide to frame size. OFI Geometry means that the frames are low and long, with plenty of standover room. You can take this two ways: You can either have a regular position coupled with a small and chuckable frame, or you could go for the next size up and go long and racey with a short stem without feeling like you're riding a gate. Make sure you consider your leg length as well. If you upsize you might not be able to fit a dropper post with 150mm drop due to the collar hitting the seat tube top. You lot are just too different to say for sure, so drop us a line at size@cotic.co.uk and we'll be happy to discuss set up based on what you're riding at the moment.

Cotic frames are designed, developed, engineered and tested entirely by us at our base in the Peak District, near Sheffield in the UK. Our founder - Cy Turner - is the lead designer and engineer, and our frames are rigorously ride tested by everyone at Cotic, and our Race Team. They are fully certified and lab tested in excess of the requirements of ISO4210 safety standards.

Launch frames, built and finished in the UK

available in Afterburner and Matte Teal

For these frames the majority of the production process happens right here in the UK! The skilled guys at Five Land Bikes in Scotland manufacture the Reynolds 853 front triangle in small batches, to their exacting standards. This is married to our proven rear ends and linkages from our excellent suppliers in Taiwan, as found across our droplink range. Much of the remaining machined parts are made by Superstar Components in Lincolnshire.

All the major parts of the frame are dip coated in manganese phosphate to prevent corrosion, before being painted using tough and durable automotive spec paint by the Five Land guys. The graphics on these frames are masked and painted, rather than stick on decals, for a seamless top quality look beyond anything you would normally expect on a production bike. After Five Land Bikes have completed this painstaking hand finishing process and their rigorous QC, the frame parts undergo further checking by us before assembly at our HQ in the Peak District.

As a final added extra, all UK made frames are Datatag'd from the factory. You will receive all your Datatag documents with your frame or bike when it's delivered.

Coming soon... Taiwan built frames

available in Neon Mercury and Matte Blue Steel

These frames are hand made in Taiwan by our specially selected framebuilder, chosen because of their vast experience with our favourite materials, and their top quality finish. They are the best in Taiwan for what we need.

Each frame is dip coated inside and out with zinc phosphate before painting, to prevent corrosion and ensure the best paint finish. After we've agonised over the colours, designs and decals the frames are painted to the highest quality including a protective clear coat, before extensive QC by our agent in Taiwan. Once the frames reach us in the UK, we carry out further QC, and prep the frames for headset and bottom bracket installation.

As always, all complete bikes are built to order by us here in the Peak District, to the exact spec of your choice. We build your bike for you.
