The Big Iron uses truly modern mountain bike geometry adapted for use with super-huge 27.5 fat bike tires. The reach is longer than most other fat bikes, which allows for the same body position using a wider bar and short stem. The handling benefits of this setup are magnified in snow riding with a sometimes unstable front tire at low pressures. The chain stays are adjustable from 445mm to 460mm so you can really dial in the rear-end snappiness of this bike based on the tire size you choose. A lower seat tube and curved top tube allow for excellent standover height while allowing for the use of a longer than normal dropper seatpost, and still keep a nice big front triangle if you choose to use a frame bag for gear storage.
Because titanium is magic
We make our bikes form the best materials possible for the terrain we ride. For now, that means titanium, but we’re not stopping there stay posted. We use the highest quality Grade 9 3/2.5 titanium for our frames’ tubing, and 6/4 titanium for the head tube, bottom bracket shell, and machined bits all over the frame. The wonder material has so many excellent ride quality attributes: 43% lighter than steel, higher strength-weight ratio than aluminium, significantly more resistant to crash-damage than carbon, and the best vibration damping properties of all three listed here. We think you’ll agree that we achieved our goal of creating titanium frames with a modern twist by engineering guided internal cable routing, stealth dropper post routing, integrated headsets, and threaded bottom brackets. For riders who want a high-end, comfortable, fast bike built to last a lifetime, we believe a properly made titanium frame is the best option.
