Stainless steel is a unique material. Like titanium, it won't corrode over time, but where it rises above Ti, is in a ride quality that feels solid, crisp and glued to the road. That's why our Snob comes to life on technical, twisty terrain, fire roads, challenging terrain and any time comfort and sheer traction are needed over raw stiffness. We designed the Snob to be a balance between tradition and contemporary thinking. It's compact geometry, oversize tubes, tapered headtube and seat mast makes the Snob as fresh and modern as the latest carbon bikes, but with the feel and soul of a master-made steel frame that is comfortable for all-day rides. We use KVA and Reynolds stainless steel tubing, matted to oversized headtubes and PF30 shells. The Snob can be painted or left bare and you can choose a seat mast or traditional seat tube and post.
