The Titanium 45650b is back. Refined and refreshed the ultimate titanium trail hardtail is here once again with the silky smooth ride and handling that only titanium can deliver. If you find XC bikes too vanilla and 29ers too waggon wheel then the Ti 45650b will hit your sweet spot. It's our number one Ti fighter.
The Ti 45650b is a uniquely British proposition, we'll ride in any weather, any trail, up and down all day long, no uplifts or shuttle runs needed. The Ti45650b is the bike for that type of riding. Lock it down with a short travel 4" fork and you have a trail centre ready rocket that'll gobble up the twisty singletrack at warp speed. Fit it out with 6" forks and you've a point to point missile that'll gobble up any track and always knows how to handle the rough stuff with the path points downwards.
No other material can match the properties of titanium, it's the ultimate off-road metal. It doesn't rust like steel, it doesn't fatigue like aluminium and it smoothes out the trails like no other tubing. Factor in its unique appearance and everyone knows that titanium is the smart rider's choice.
Groupset: SRAM GX1 proves that SRAM have totally nailed 1X drivetrains and now we're ready to bring them to the masses. We've long been fans of the simpler one-up-front set-up, and this groupset manages to eliminate all those sore points that prevented previous perfection. Chain retention is faultless thanks to the X-Sync chainring; no more deflected chains, strong performance in muddy conditions - it's next level. Shifting is on-point and solid thanks to the horizontal parallelogram X-Horizon rear mech design. Doesn't mean much? Well, in performance terms it's faster, reduces shift force and does away with ghost shifting and chain slap, whilst increasing stability and precision across the entire range of the 10-42T cassette. This is pretty much the best VFM groupset available right now.
Suspension Fork: Rockshox Yari 140mm Yari brings Pike's and the new Lyrik's acclaimed look and proven features, such as the 35mm chassis, Fast Black upper tubes and Solo Air or Dual Position Air spring systems, to a wider audience. The new refined Motion Control IS damper features Rapid Recovery rebound and its high speed compression circuit is tuned to match the feeling of the Charger damper.
Wheelset: WTB i25 KOM, EL Guapo Rattlesnake hubs Naturally its a 27.5 wheeled bike, because thats the Goldilocks wheel size, not too small, not too big, but just right. We've paired up our stonking El Guapo Pro hubs with WTB's rowdy and wide i25 rims. They're fast light and track straight and true, just right for smashing up your local trails and getting lairy at the bike park. Our El Guapo Rattlesnake hubs pack in a tough four pawl engagement mechanism and easy tool free hand dissasembly when it comes time to service them. Don't worry though with Sealed Japanese EZO bearings it'll be ages before you need to wrench on these.
We've kitted the new Ti 45650b with a frame specification that is right on the money. Oversized tapered steerer, double butted main tubes and a squeak free threaded BB. The Ti 45650b is fitted with a Stealth Reverb, anything less simply wouldn't do. Add in an ISCG05 guide mount and a 142mm thru axle back end and you have a bike built for UK conditions. Built to ride hard and built to put a huge smile on your face.
