“I’m about going all over all of the mountains. Or maybe not even mountains, just wherever the next trail leads me. I wanted a bomber hardtail that is totally up to date with all the relevant technology and design features of a modern mountain bike: great geometry, strong yet not overbuilt, and is optimized for all the great new components that make riding hard much better, like chunkier tires, powerful brakes, a solid suspension fork and a sturdy, fast-rolling set of wheels to roll on. I need all the cutting edge devices but I also want something that is reliable and timeless. As technology keeps advancing I want a frame that won’t need upgrading and which I can just bolt on the latest and greatest parts and keep riding hard.”


Specs

Midweight, All Mountain

For 2017 the Wideangle undergoes several changes including updated geometry, new features, and compatibilities. The Wideangle is our 27.5 wheel, all mountain hardtail made by hand at our partner factory in Taiwan. The newest version features longer front end geometry with relaxed headtube and steepened seattube. Oriented to longer travel forks, the Wideangle positioning is readjusted for the best balance of direction control and stability. It also includes boost rear wheel spacing, tapered headtube and stealth seattube routing. A new machined yoke pared with the boost layout means that we can increase tire clearance significantly. For those interested in dabbling in the future option of 26+, there is clearance to explore that route.

Features

Head tube badges

Bikes are special. The headtube badge is the finishing touch so we’ve always made a point of taking the time to do something interesting with it. Our headtube badges have changed over the years and are an indication of the time each bike was made. Whether it’s a cast bronze, or polished stainless steel, water cut aluminum or a 3D CNC carving, each one represents our commitment to detail.

Yokel

Our ‘Yokel’ design is a small machined junction on the chainstay that helps accommodate both tire clearance and chainring clearance. Our first versions were huge CNC yokes that bridged the entire front end of the chainstays. Over time we refined this to minimize weight by arranging our chainstay layout asymmetrically and reducing the yoke to a minimal size. It’s one of our most unique frame features and has been copied by other frame makers.

Tubing

Making modern chromoly frames is challenging when most of the tubes available on the market are from an era of mountain biking long past. After several years of frame production we reached the point where we could design and produce our own custom tubing for the majority of our frame tubes. This contributes to the unique look of many of our frames but more importantly allows us to configure our bikes exactly as we want for each design.
