This tandem frame is custom built in England by Bob Jackson's and lead time is currently 4 months
The Summit Trail is designed for any type of non tarmac riding from gravel trails to singletrack. It's a great example of just what is possible, for example it can be built with a rigid Reynolds fork or with S&S couplings.

The frame is hand-built, exclusively for Orbit Tandems, by Bob Jackson of Leeds. Bob Jackson have been building frames for over 80 years and this experience shows in the beautiful brazing and finishing.

The frame is designed using modern geometry and built with Reynolds with 853 tubing.

S&S couplings are available at an extra cost, making this tandem not just a dream to ride and stunning to look at, but easy to travel with.

The Summit is built in our Gargrave workshop, using top quality components from companies such as Reynolds, Rohloff, Schwalbe, Tubus & DT Swiss & Rockshox.

Every frame is made to order, so we can create a tandem that fits you perfectly.

There's a choice of nearly 70 different colours and some of the most popular are British racing green, viola metallic, ruby red, green, amber & royal blue flamboyant.

Our test ride model is built with a 27.5" wheel but other wheel sizes are available.
