We are
sputnik

Sputnik gravel bikes are made in small limited batches. Once a year we will produce a batch of Sputniks. Although they are all made to measure and thus unique, they are part of a family and share the same paint job. For 2018, we offer the INTERGALACTIC paint scheme, which comes with Chris King's limited edition Matte Punch headset.

The Bike

Specifications
  • Frame features

    Rock solid high-end steel tubing from the worlds' leading manufacturers Columbus and Dedacciai. Anti-corrision treatment before paint work makes that this machine is ready to endure your adventures. Custom braze-on's are optional.

  • Details

    A Sputnik comes with thru axles and takes up to 38 mm tires. Custom shaped chain stays provide sufficient heel clearance.

  • Fork

    Sputnik comes standard with a carbon Columbus Futura gravel fork. A stable fork with internal disc brake cable routing. Optional upgrade: ENVE Composites gravel fork including integrated yet removable fender.

  • Bottom bracket

    A Sputnik comes standard with a T47 bottom bracket. A game changer, oversized and creak-free due to its 47 mm threads.

  • Headset

    No concessions made. Chris King i8 headset in limited edition 'Matte Punch'.

  • Groupset

    A Sputnik comes with the leading groupset in gravel & CX riding: SRAM's FORCE 1 CX Hydro disc.
    It features a 42 chainring combined with your choice of sprockets: 11-26, 11-28, 11-32 of 11-36. Optional is a 38 or 40 chainring.

  • Internal hydrocable routing

    Details count. To give your Sputnik that clean and sleek look, we go to a lot of trouble to put your hydraulics fully internal. As an added bonus, it also makes your life easier when cleaning your machine.

  • Tires

    Wheels are topped off with great rolling 36mm IRC tubeless gravel tires.

  • Wheelset

    A Sputnik comes with nothing less than a handbuilt wheelset: reliable DT240S hubs (black edition) laced onto tubeless ready asymmetric DT XR361 rims with an allround 22.5mm internal width, perfect for gravel riding or wider road tires.

  • Cockpit & seatpost

    Sputnik comes standard with a solid aluminum Cinelli Dinamo (black edition) handlebars mounted onto a Thomson stem and a Thomson Elite seatpost.

  • Saddle

    As a standard feature, we offer your choice of R3 or M3 range saddles of Fizik. Optional upgrades are Fizik R1 or M1 range saddles. We know that saddles can be perfect for one individual, while being a punishment for others. Contact us for specific saddle requirements, we're happy to offer you your favorite saddle.
