HANDBUILT FOR A LIFETIME
A Sputnik is bought for life, we build each individual Sputnik around its owner. We measure, design, build and assemble from scratch to give you the ultimate riding experience.
A beautiful dark antracite base coat is combined with some fading candy blue details. On top of that the metallic finish really makes it stand out from the rest. Don't forget the Sputnik gets an anti-corrosion treatment for superb quality and durability.
Details count. To give your Sputnik that clean and sleek look, we craft your hydraulics fully internal. This makes for a more reliable braking performance while being less sensitive to external factors you may come across on your adventures.
FLAT MOUNT THRU AXLE
Hydraulic disc brakes need a solid frame mounting for the best performance. We've designed compact dropouts with a 142x12 thru-axle and borrowed St Joris Cycles' flat mount construction for optimal stiffness and control of your disc brake.
FrameMade to measure with custom geometry
Made to your body only. It's a unique experience to really feel one with your bike. This only happens when your bike fits like a glove. So we offer a bikefitting session from our partner Pedaalkracht. Once we've got your position right, we will built your perfect Sputnik frame geometry.
Carefully selected tubing from Columbus and Dedacciai combined with an 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 safe and reliably shielded from external impacts. Oh, and it helps when cleaning your bike after a rugged ride.
