While the gravel bikes are still the hype of the biking industry, not everyone is following the drop bar fad. Lot of riders, for example those who derive from mountain biking, admire the concept of a fast, rigid semi road, semi off-road bike, but the “roadie” handlebars put them off. Let’s face it – flat, wide handlebars have it’s advantages that cannot be denied.
Guys in our office, mostly mountain bikers, wanted a flat bar gravel bike from the day, we’ve started producing the “traditional” drop bar Gridd. We had no option, but to make one. So, here it is – the Gridd Flat!
What’s the bike made for? Fast and fun commuting, moving your butt around the town after work, gravel riding or even bike packing!
The Flat is built around a redesigned alloy Gridd frame set, with it’s geometry adjusted specially for the use of flat bar (longer front end, slacker head tube angle). Your power is transmitted by 1×10 drivetrain (40T chainring and 11-46 cassette) to 700C wheels with 35mm Kenda Fintrige tires.
Hydraulic disc brakes from Shimano, won’t let you down if you want to go from full speed ahead to zero. The bike’s also got all the mounting holes to fit the mudguards and racks, if you want to use the bike for bad weather commuting or bike packing.
Some numbers: the bike retails at €949, weighs 10.75kg (M size), comes in 4 sizes (from S to XL). Geometry and specification to be found here.
This sporty trail slayer’s heart is our brand new alloy frame built around a four-bar suspension system with Horst link. The OMG’s suspension has got very good kinematics – it’s sensitive in all the travel range but doesn’t bottom out easily

This lightweight frameset with carbon fiber fork is future proof and up to date with all the newest standards: disc brakes, thru axles, fender mounts and a lot of tire clearance (up to 700x40C). The GRIDD’s geometry is pretty tight and frisky, so it may become your sparing partner during on-road and off-road training rides. At the same time it’s comfortable enough to take you through a long bike escapades or get you to work and back home in everyday commuting (especially once the mudguards are installed).
So weather you’re looking for a base to build a gravel grinder, a drop bar (like our own brand new Flare) or a flat bar commuter workhorse, bike packing machine or even a CX bike for racing a local event – the GRIDD is the frame for you! An excellent everyday, multipurpose ride.
The GRIDD frameset comes in 4 sizes: S/M/L/XL and are available in 3 colors: black and blue and red. The KODES are available through our dealers and distributors or through our shop. For more info about the frame go here.
Here’s the KODE – our brand new all-round frameset. What’s cool about it? What makes it probably the most versatile product in our offer? First of all, the material – custom butted TANGE steel tubes not only makes the frame and fork super comfortable, but also relatively lightweight (frame + fork weigh 3kg).
Thanks to the horizontal dropouts there’s almost an indefinite number of bike types that you can build around this frameset. Let’s try to name a few: fixed gear, single speed commuter, geared commuter, geared adventure bike, geared gravel bike, disc brake road bike and so on and so forth. Adding the possibility of choosing from different type of handlebars (dropped or flat), the number of options that you can go for is really vast. The geometry of the frame is pretty universal, so the position on the bike is comfortable no matter the set-up that you build.
The frame also features all the mounting holes that you could ever wish for: mudguards, racks, 3x bottle cage mounts. The tire clearance is big enough to take up a fat gravel or road plus tire (up to 700 x 43c or 650b x 45c). This means that you can make the KODE a perfect bikepacking workhorse and the best two-wheeled fellow traveler out there.
The frameset comes in 3 sizes: S/M/L and are available in 2 classic colors: black and white. The KODES are avalilable through our dealers and distributors or through our shop. For more info about the frame go here.
OUR CUSTOM BUILT CODES:
The Prone was one of our favorite projects of this season. The versatile frame that would be a perfect base to a everyday trail allrounder. Prones are designed in line with the modern trends: low, long and slack. We decided to differentiate the geometry of 2 wheel sizes models: the 29″ with more “pedal friendly” geometry, a bit less aggressive than it’s smaller brother on 27.5″ hoops, which is also designed for more heavy duty use (for example with longer travel forks).
But don’t think that bigger wheeler can’t be used as a proper trail shredder! This guy is really “prone” for attacking berms, sending hits and descent like mad. Just have a look at one of our RnD guys – Wojtek – riding the hell out of the Prone. Wojtek rides enduro and DH bikes on a daily basis, and was really happy with the frame’s performance in the environment usually reserved for bigger rigs. It’s really hard to intimidate the Prone. What’s important it makes the transfers between your favorite spots much more pleasurable.
If you’re looking for a all-round bike, that won’t break the bank – the Prone is a great frame to start with. Check out the frame’s spec and geometry here . They’re available in 3 sizes (S/M/L) and 3 colors. Want to get it? Try one of our dealers.
