Built with more than meets the eye
Urban cycling doesn't get any better
The C:1 presented us with the challenge to create an upright, comfortable and confident rider position without sacrificing our performance ideals. A 10 speed (1x10) drivetrain with a single, sequential thumb shifter excels in this set up, for more intuitive shifting, and lower maintenance. The disc brakes on the C:1 provide consistent, assured braking far beyond traditional rim brakes, and although they’re hidden, we favor superior sealed bearings throughout for low maintenance and maximum lifespan. The components we use are anything but 'standard'. We’re committed to sourcing the best, and if we’re not satisfied we design our own. You’ll feel a distinct difference in the ride, not because of one exceptional component but the considered combination of them all. We’ll custom build this bike specifically for you.
At the heart of the C:1 is our iconic classic frame. We designed and built it from scratch, drawing on a life time’s riding experience. Our frames and forks are manufactured with 6061 aluminum and double butted tubes, subtly varying wall thicknesses and shaping for each tube throughout the bike. They have been engineered to provide effortless power transfer, along with a remarkably comfortable ride. Our bikes are meticulously designed and engineered in every last detail.
