News Updates

1st February 2016


As of 1st February 2016, Highpath Engineering Ltd is VAT registered.

We apply 20% VAT to the prices of all goods and services supplied to UK and EU customers.

All orders from non-EU countries will not attract any VAT.

We realise that this enforced price rise is unwelcome for customers, and have absorbed some of the increase ourselves.

We are able to supply some Pulse products and services at nil-rate VAT within the EU if you have a chronic disability (for example a long term restriction of movement due to joint surgery) and are willing to fill in a this simple declaration.

Please do not use Paypal checkout if you are a UK/EU customer and want to claim this relief – complete page 2 of the declaration form and send it to us by email to orders@highpath.net, or by post, with a note of what goods or services you wish to order. We will raise a VAT-free invoice for you to pay by bank transfer, cheque, or Paypal

New ‘Dark’ finish

After many requests for a black finish to blend with the colour of newer cranks, are very pleased to announce that Swing Cranks and Shorteners are now available in a beautiful satin black anodised finish. Here’s a comparison of the raw aluminium and anodised Swing Cranks on my own black FSA Gossamer

We have standard versions in stock – the long versions will be available in the next few weeks.

For the moment, the black finish is available at the same price as the raw aluminium – but prices will be rising soon. If you’d like your Crank Shortener or Swing Crank in black, please mention it in the PayPal notes (if buying online) or in your email/enquiry (if buying with a VAT exemption)
