For adventures into the remote, Broken Road will be an indispensable companion. Simple, elegant lines, mixed with technical details and features. Broken Road mixes adaptable wheel standards, adaptable drivetrain standards, and yet stays bang up to date, with modern features and contemporary geometry.
From it’s multi-use tyre size – from big 27.5+ tyres to 29in rubber to 700c wheels, Broken Road eats up long distance trails with style and comfort whilst being a capable trail centre hardtail. Hand welded from the finest 3AL / 2.5 V titanium tubing, custom formed and designed by us to be your tool of choice for eating up the miles over whatever surface you choose.
Broken Road is designed to work across any terrain, but if you want to mix things up, a short travel suspension fork or alternative front end package – even a fat bike front wheel, will add it’s own style and features.
Our adjustable dropouts allow fitting of various sizes of wheels (we recommend 650b+ and 29in or larger section 700c). The bigger, fatter wheels go over obstacles better, hold momentum and give enhanced control. There is flexibility in the choice of drivetrain as well, either singlespeed, conventional derailleur or internal hub gears.
Broken Road is the off-road adventurer. The one who, without engines and cacophony, can explore the world in a remarkably unique way. The ability to travel further, faster and with less gives the bikepacker a profound advantage. When you catch nature off guard, what will you see?
Elegant tubing that enhances riding and load capacity
Climb aboard and experience the famed resilience titanium can offer. Broken Road’s aeronautical grade titanium tubing has been designed to isolate the rider from shock, while giving an efficient ride and maximising the storage potential on the bike. You won’t have to make any comprimises when riding over rough terrain, the low standover height and rider clearance make sure of that.
650b+ (semi fat) ready
Designed for optimum use with 650b/650b+ wheels which help you to tackle any journey that you thrust upon it. The bigger, fatter wheels go over obstacles better, hold momentum and give enhanced control due to the angling.
The long wheelbase wonderfully balances precision and handling giving you the flexibility to adjust riding position easily. The unique geometries give an enticingly slackened head angle for what we think is the perfect set up for eating up the miles over any surface and balances of comfortable uphill grinding and exciting downhill speed to leave you whooping.
Broken Road mixes adaptable wheel and drivetrain standards so you can ride it how you want. The adjustable dropouts allow 650b+, 29 in or large section 700c wheels and either singlesped, derailleur or internal hub gears.
Who would choose to be a head tube? You might as well step into the ring with Mike Tyson. It is a critical junction point where forces are distributed around the frame and steering precision is won or lost. Broken Road uses a straight head tube with external bearings for precision steering over broken ground.
Titanium is lightweight, strong and durable making it an ideal construction material for bike frames. No other material is as durable, lasts as long, or looks as good. Our frames are handmade and come with a 10 year frame warranty.
Rear rack mount lugs
Rack mounts can be fitted on the rear allowing you to load up your Broken Road with panniers.
