Demo A Bird

With an extensive demo fleet at Bird HQ, Bird in the North, and Cwmcarn trailhead in Wales, demoing our bikes has never been easier.

Bookings are made on a first come first served basis. Most of our demo fleet is 12 speed equipped, Rockshox Suspension and DT Swiss wheels.

We’re sorry but we cannot build specific bikes or specifications for each demo (although we do get asked!).

PLEASE CLICK HERE TO CHECK OUR SIZE GUIDE BEFORE BOOKING A DEMO – Our bikes are sized a bit differently to what you might be riding already, for example our ML size is equivalent to a Medium or Large in other brands, and our Medium can be considered more of a Medium/Small. Using our size guide before your demo is the best way to test the size that should be right for you.
