Steel Is Real

Jumping on a chromoly steel hardtail after riding any other hardtail is like a cracking open a cold drink after a long hot day, refreshing and relieving. The chromoly steel construction of the NVHT lands you right in that sweet spot of high performance and comfort. The harmonics of chromoly steel, the physics going on that we can’t observe with the naked eye lend to a smooth and stately ride quality that no other material matches in hardtail mountain bike frames. Less noise, less chatter, less vibration, more support and more compliance. An almost magical blend ready for a bad ass rider looking for a new challenge or a new rider excited to go full send on a quality rig for their first bike, is that you?

 

Go Fast – No Rear Squish Necessary

Imagine having a hardtail that feels like a downhill bike but pedals up just as well as any other hardtail out there. Hardcore yet really serious about dominating the hardtail world. Thanks to modern geometry, you can feel more confident on your next chromoly steel hardtail frame. Give the NVHT a rip down your favorite trail and it will give you smiles in return. The lower seat tube allows more leg travel to take up the lack of a shock with your legs. This gives you more room between your rear-end and the saddle. All of this means that NVHT was designed to allow you to maneuver around the center of gravity for optimal handling and feel. Don’t worry if you have long legs! We have dropper seat posts with 210mm (8.25″) travel, so you’re covered!

 

Beat Your Friends – On a Chromoly Steel Hardtail 

Other hardtails are still stuck in the past of the low travel single crown forks. They still cling to those old-school low travel forks like antique collector fiends trying to find their next frame on the antique show. We drop-kicked that backwards mentality and sent our chromoly hardtail into the future with longer travel fork geometry that keeps the wheelbase longer as it goes through the travel for stability and speed without loss of efficiency and playfulness. The NVHT chromoly steel works on all trails from leisurely smooth XC to aggressive, pucker inducing DH and believe it or not, even DJ sessions too! The NVHT chromoly hardtail is long, low and slack so you’re planted for speed, centered for hitting drops, rocks and roots and balanced for corners and sharp turns. Lacking a rear shock doesn’t mean your frame should lack performance.

 

Long in the Front / Short in the Back + Pedal Beast

We set out to make a chromoly steel hardtail mountain bike frame that was balanced. Giving you the confidence of a full suspension mountain bike frame but not the high cost. The seat tube angle is just right, not too steep, not too slack. It stays out of your way for descents but in a nice spot for aggressive climbing techie aggressive trails.

Why Chromoly?

Why Chromoly?

Chromoly is much stronger than traditional steel and aluminum alloys. Chromoly is the most earth friendly material that we’ve seen besides bamboo that’s being made into bicycles. Studies show that chromoly requires 6-11 times less energy and emissions than competing materials to mine, manufacture and process.

Most people looking to buy our frame will have their minds made up on chromoly steel frames and prefer this material for their next frame but if you’re new to or curious about this amazing material, here are some of the advantages you’ll hear from experienced riders:

Quiet

Chromoly steel bike frames possess a natural flex that absorbs sounds. While not completely silent when contact is made with rocks or roost, the ride is very stately feeling. Focus on the path ahead, not nuisances.

Durability

You’re buying a bike that will stand the test of time with proper care and maintenance. Imagine owning a bike that can be welded and repaired rather than degrade and be thrown away. Most people consider the user-friendly nature of chromoly to be a very wise investment.

Feel

Our steel full suspension mountain bike frames are engineered with controlled flex, working with the natural characteristics of heat treated chromoly and stiffening it up where it’s necessary for maximum efficiency. Chromoly tubing for a mountain bike is very thin yet incredibly strong, it has an inherent flex that people strive for in order to reduce vibrations translated to their hands and feet which works to reduce rider fatigue and increase rider comfort. Ride longer, more comfortably and much harder. Slight flex in the rear keeps the wheel planted in sharp hard turns keeping you on two wheels.

Strong

Chromoly’s strength to weight ratio rivals that of titanium yet it’s more affordable. Rest easy knowing what you’ve accepted as norm, steel is strong. Imagine a high-tech, lighter weight yet stronger alloy of steel being made into a frame for your next mountain bike. There are pluses and minuses for every known material being made into a mountain bike frame but welded seems, not glued, is something we personal feel is more solid and secure. Metal melted to metal, not piece, glued to piece. Fancy marketing words will lead you to believe other materials are “one solid piece” (“Monocoque”) but research shows that’s misleading, it’s actually multiple segments glued together into one piece which is strong too for only a comparably very short lifespan. Ride safe though, we can’t be held responsible for your new found feel of steel, ride at your own risk, ride responsible.
