Any adventure, road or trail, rough or smooth, wet or dry, high or low… we designed our A:1 to be beyond versatile. It’s the bike we’d always wanted that we could never find, so we designed it and we built it. An unassuming contender, custom built with all the essential components. It’s lightweight and fully adaptable for outfitting, and adventures off the beaten path. Our custom geometry is key, designed to make the A:1 handle quickly, track precisely and carry speed stably over different terrains. The bike feels tough, whilst fluid and agile… it’s strength and beauty all in one. The bike hits well above it’s weight, already earning a cheeky reputation for race wins.
On or Off Road
It’s just as happy on road as off, but once you’re in the saddle the temptation to hit the trail might simply be too much.
It’s A Classic
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 1×10 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’.
