This year, we are offering your Sputnik ECLIPSE with Shimano's GRX RX800 groupset. A 1x11 drivetrain with 40 or 42 chainring and plenty of choice in the rear: 11-28, 11-30, 11-34 or even an 11-40 cassette. Prefer double chainrings? Then take the GRX groupset with 31-46 chainrings. If you are intending to use your Sputnik also in road oriented rides, choose for the Shimano Ultegra 34-50 groupset for maximum versatility.
Personal frame design
Each individual Sputnik is made to measure for its owner. Based on your riding style, typical use and personal preferences, we design and build your Sputnik from scratch to give you the ultimate riding experience. Bring in your bikefitting data or let us help you set up your bikefitting session with our bikefitter Pedaalkracht.
We go the extra mile to provide you with a handbuilt wheelset made from the most reliable components available. The Sputnik ECLIPSE comes with nothing less than a wheelset built with DT240 hubs on tubeless ready Stan's Grail rims. A though set that can take a serious beating!
Optional upgrades: Chris King R45 Matte Jet hubs and/or Scope R3 or O2 carbon rims.
FrameMade to measure with custom geometry
It's a unique experience to really feel one with your bike. This not only requires your bike to fit like a glove but also the geometry needs to be targeted to your inteded use. If your Sputnik is going to be your off-road companion, its geometrie will be designed a bit different compared to one that is designed for both on- and off-road use. So, it is important for us to know your intended use!
If you don't have recent bikefitting data, we offer bikefitting sessions together with our partner Pedaalkracht to get you on the bike perfectly.
Carefully selected tubing from Columbus and Dedacciai combined with in-house produced head tube, thru-axle dropouts, custom bent seat stays and St Joris' (flat mount) disc brake mount make for a rock solid frame to endure your adventures.
Details count. To give the bike that clean and sleek look, we go the extra mile to put your hydraulics fully internal. This makes your bike's hydraulics are safe and reliably shielded from external impacts. Oh, and it helps when cleaning your bike after a rugged ride.
WheelsetHandbuilt: Stan's Notubes Grail rims and DT240S hubset
A Sputnik comes with nothing less than a handbuilt wheelset: reliable DT240S hubs (black edition) laced onto tubeless ready Stan's Notubes Grail rims with an allround 22.5mm internal width, perfect for allround use and gravel riding. You can perfectly mount tires up to 38 mm, but this rim also takes road tires down to 25 mm.
Optional upgrades: Carbon rims from Scope or ENVE, Chris King R45 Matte Jet hubs.
