Description

Vista

Vista is our take on what a hardtail mountain bike should be…aggressive, fast, and fun! Vista is an American-made mountain bike with modern trail geometry, plus sized tires, and burly tubing. Designed as a mesh between a trail bike and dirt jump bike, the Vista doesn’t feel out of place stopping at the pump track on the way home from a trail ride. The Vista’s roomy cockpit is made for short stems and wide bars for better control on switchbacks and rock gardens. The slack head tube angle, low bottom bracket, and optimized chain stay lengths make for a balanced ride to keep you feeling confident on the steep downhill sections or climbing that daunting hill.

A new design

We’ve taken a different approach to frame design by using oversized American-made 6061 tubing up front and rectangular tubing in the rear, matted to CNC’d chain stay and seat stay yokes. This burly design reduces frame flex, improves torsional compliance, and enhances power transfer from each pedal stroke, while giving our bikes the unique aggressive look that we are becoming known for. The incorporation of CNC’d yokes also allows our frames to have greater tire and chain ring clearance, while creating stronger weld joints due to a more precise manufacturing process.

Finish Options

Factory Raw

A current trend in the hand crafted bike industry is choosing a bike that is delivered with a factory raw finish. The factory raw look best reveals the manufacturing quality and technical details of the frame. Factory raw frames are not coated after production, but move directly to assembly. Over time, an oxide layer/patina forms on the frame, causing the shine of the raw aluminium to fade slightly. With the help of a polishing compound or cleaner, the old shine can be restored in a few easy steps.

Powder Coat

If you decide to customize the color of your bike, you can choose from a selection of several different powder coat colors. If there isn’t a color shown on our bike build page, please contact us for custom options. Powder coating is an advanced finishing process that is a extremely durable and more resistant to chipping, scratching, fading, and wearing when exposed to snow, rain, and the hot sun.
