 Arise 2 – $1,399

The Arise was one of the first models for Bombtrack, and since the very first version it has always been the most popular in the range. Over the years the Arise has developed offspring, each more tailored in a specific direction, yet always retaining that fundamental ‘multi-purpose’ characteristic.

Based around a double butted frame with heat-treated front triangle and tapered seat and chain stays the Arise 2 is a solid base ready for any adaptation you could wish for. Thanks to generous tire clearance and the disc brake set up, even running 650B tires is an easy option. Now featuring a narrow-wide 11-speed chainring, making a 1x conversion is even easier.

  • The most versatile Bombtrack, with geometry allowing for on and off road riding with options for 650b or 700c wheels.
  • Double butted and heat-treated front triangle, with tapered crmo seat and chain stays.
  • Removable cable guides and cable stops for enclosed or regular gear cable set-ups as 1x or 2x.
  • Clearance for 52/36T chainrings.
  • Wide narrow chainring, 11-speed chain and rear cog allowing easy conversion into a 1x or 2×11 set up.

The SRAM Apex 2×10 shifting is consistent and reliable, and offers plenty of gears for even the steepest of climbs. If you decide to load up for a commute or bike packing trip, the integrated rack and fender mounts mean the Hook is quickly transformed and ready for the journey.

Hook 2 – $2,699

The Hook 2 is a CX and gravel bike, designed to keep on going even when the going gets tough.

Carrying the famous white Dove, the Columbus tubing is recognized around the world for its quality. The Cromor tubing on the Hook 2 is ideally suited to the life of a CX and gravel bike, strong and durable yet light enough to let you perform.

Versatility comes as standard, not only in the geometry but also with the rear rack and fender mounts. As an update for 2018 the Quarq Prime crankset means upgrading to a power meter in the future is very straight forward.

Hook EXT

Built on a 27.5” rim and using a wider tire produces a wheel with the same outer diameter as a typical 700x28c. This means it’s possible to run bigger knobby mountain bike tires, with all the grip they offer, yet retain the geometry of a CX/gravel bike, something gravel racers have long dreamed of. This is made possible thanks to a specially designed frame that utilizes a wider bottom bracket and yoke to maintain a wide yet short rear end. The Columbus Cromor double-butted tubing has the perfect blend of being lightweight yet durable, perfect for gravel riding. For 2018 the EXT features a new full carbon fork, with anything cage and fender mounts, creating more options for front end luggage. Additional frame features added for 2018 include the invest cast chain stay yoke, dropper post compatibility and direct mounts for top tube bag.

The SRAM Rival 1 is ideally suited to the Hook EXT, thanks to its simplified 1x design with clutch derailleur, wide range cassette and X-sync chainring providing smooth shifting in any conditions. The hydraulic brakes bring a superior stopping power to the EXT, which is reassuring on steeper technical descents. The versatile build is designed to offer as much all-round use as possible, so if your journey is mainly on-road, swap out the wheels for a set of 700c’s, with anything up to 45c tire.

Outlaw – from $1,649

Introduced in 2017 the Outlaw was an instant hit, thanks to its oversized tires combined with the clean lines of the steel tubing, and ‘those looks’. Using the ‘Road Plus’ concept with a 650B rim combined with a large volume tire, the benefit of a more comfortable ride is achieved. Blending the geometry of road and urban, with steep head and seat tube angles but a higher stack height, longer wheelbase and trail gives the Outlaw its stable yet engaging ride.

Using a full crmo tube set with double-butted front triangle, tapered head tube and sliding dropouts, the Outlaw 1 has a frame packed with features. The coupler in the seat stay allows the Gates Carbon belt drive access into the frame, so that it may drive the Title-disc rear hub. Rack and fender mounts in addition to removable cable guides mean there is always scope for upgrades and modification to suit whatever daily errands the Outlaw is tasked with.
