Noel has outdone himself with this one, plain and simple. The all new Podium is simply the most technologically advanced design in the history of the company, period. From the extensive hydro-forming, one-piece tubular chainstay, custom titanium fasteners, built-in fork bumpers, to the patented & proprietary 4xFour suspension design... the new Podium has all the bells & whistles to satisfy the most discerning riders. Our standard builds are tipping the scales at a svelte 36 pounds. Once this bike is up to speed, the Podium is going to push you further as a rider than you might be comfortable with. You'd better start training.
