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.
