After a couple of years now we have been surprised with how versatile the Torque has proven to be. We have had riders send us photos and stories of daily commutes to fully loaded bike packing. The CroMo frame with cast dropouts is a modern mountain bike frame, designed for large tires and a rigid fork. The Torque has 650b wheels and large 2.4" tires for all around-‘ness’, wide 760mm Mountain Bike style handle bars for control and aggressive stance to match the tires, Shimano hydraulic brakes, and a 1x10 Speed Drivetrain make this one of the most unique bikes on the market. Torque could be a city shopping bike, an urban commuter, a hooligan city sprinter, or a trail bike out of the box. It has grown in to an ultra capable touring bike, as well as a winter bike. 27.5 x 2.4 tires, and more room for a larger front ring, or 2x capability are the changes from last year.
Who is the torque for ?
Urban Transportation, Commuter, Bike-Packing
For the person - who may not be sure what bike they want, but want something a little different, special. The large comfortable high volume tires, low standover, wide bars, and simple drivetrain tick the boxes for a wide range of riders. Rip around town like a courier from the '90's ? Yes you can ! A confidence inspiring comfort bike? Yes it is ! A bike packing adventure machine? Yes of course it is !
