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 and drivetrain standards with modern features and contemporary geometry.
With its 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 its own style and features.
Our adjustable sliding dropouts let you lengthen or shorten the Broken Road to suit your adventure - whether it’s eating up big miles or tackling technical trails. It also allows lets you fit various sizes of wheels (we recommend 650b+, 29in or larger section 700c). The bigger, fatter wheels go over obstacles better, hold momentum and give enhanced control. The dropouts let you be picky with your drivetrain as well, fitting 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 titanium tubing
Climb aboard and experience the famed resilience of titanium. No other material is as durable, lasts as long, or looks as good, and Broken Road’s aeronautical grade titanium tubing isolates the rider from shock, gives an efficient ride, and maximizes storage potential. Thanks to the low standover height and rider clearance, you won’t have to make any compromises when riding over rough terrain either.
Designed for optimum use with 650b+ (semi-fat) wheels which help you to tackle any adventure. The plus-sized wheels cruise over obstacles, hold momentum, and give enhanced control thanks to a larger contact patch.
Trail bike geometry
The long wheelbase combines precision and control, giving you the flexibility to adjust riding position easily. The frame is designed with a relaxed head angle, creating the perfect set up for eating up the miles over any surface, and striking the balance between comfortable uphill grinding and hair-raising downhill whooping.
Adjustable sliding dropouts
Adjustable sliding dropouts let you lengthen your Broken Road for eating up the miles or shorten it for the technical, steep trails, and allow for either 650b+ or 29” wheels, and either singlespeed, derailleur, or internal hub gears.
Rear rack mount lugs
Rack mounts allow you to load up with panniers.
Titanium is lightweight, strong and durable make 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

It is important to get the right size bike, if the bike fits it will be faster, more comfortable, and easier to handle. You can also take into consideration the standover height to ensure you pick a bike that will be a good fit. If you measure your inside leg and ensure there is a minimum of an inch from the top tube to your crotch this will give you enough seat post adjustment to find your optimum saddle height.
