Built with more than meets the eye
At the heart of the A:1 is our iconic, classic frame. We built it from scratch, drawing on many life times of riding, from 10 years of experience in our shops. 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. Our streamlined frames have been engineered to provide power transfer, along with a remarkably comfortable ride. Our bikes are designed and engineered in every detail.
The pinnacle of adventure cycling
The A:1 was an exercise in reduction, stripping away all that was superfluous. From this essential starting point, we designed our double sweep roll: adventure bar, positioning the rider in a relaxed endurance oriented position. In line with modern mountain and cyclocross bikes, a 1x10 drive train and single thumb shifter provides rapid, sequential gear changes as terrain changes. Disc brakes offer performance far beyond traditional rim brakes and we use superior sealed cartridge bearings throughout, for longevity and resilience. The components we use to create our bikes are anything but 'standard’.
