Steel

We chose air hardened steel because it’s malleable and it allows us to craft the tubing to the exact spec’s we need. Our steel is heat treated to give high strength and durability, and its compliant nature ensures a comfortable ride for long days in the saddle. Plus, all our steel tubes are butted so that the walls are thicker where it’s welded and thinner in the middle. This reduces weight while ensuring you have the strength needed for welding the tube ends.

Carbon Fork

Our carbon gravel fork is designed to be one of the lightest and stiffest performance gravel forks on the market. It features a rigid tapered steerer, compliant lowers, large tire clearance, and discrete fender mounts.

Progressive Geometry

Utilizing our mountain bike expertise, we wanted to offer a bike that felt comfortable on both short and long-haul rides, as well as multi-surface terrains. We designed the Cache with a longer front center and a shorter stem to ensure it had optimal handling to expertly manage technical corners, while still being predictable, stable and comfortable on epic adventure rides.

Butted Tubing

All our steel tubes are butted so that the walls are thicker where it’s welded and thinner in the middle. This reduces weight while also ensuring you have the strength needed for welding the tube ends. In addition, we know you’re going to push this bike hard in all weather conditions, so we applied an ED anti-corrosion coating on the interior and exterior of all our tubes.

Human Centric Sizing

We have always believed in human centric sizing and design our bikes to deliver optimal reach, standover height and geometry for a broad range of riders.

Knolly Craftsmanship

Of the seven Cache steel tubes (two top tubes, two down tubes, seat tube, chain stay and seat stay), all are custom and most of them required new or modified production tooling. In particular, we wanted to highlight the Cache seat tube. Instead of being completely straight, our Cache is curved, butted and follows the shape of the wheel. This elegant tube not only looks stunning but it also provides tire and fender clearance and vertical compliance through the seat post to the rider.

Versatility with Intuitive Features

Our riders wanted one bike that could deliver the highest level of performance, reliability and durability. The Cache steel features a DT Swiss RWS rear axle, custom CNC’d dropouts, supports 1by or 2by, 3 water bottle mounts, rack mounts, and external cable housing with cable guides along the downtube to ensure easy and quick service-ability. This ride is offered in three great colour options: Midnight Blue/Black, Blue Sky Camo, Green Grey. We’re proud of the Cache steel, as we know it will deliver strong on your next gravel, single-track or urban adventure.
