Meet the OMG!

We just couldn’t resist the temptation of sharing you the first pictures of our new, raw baby – the OMG! The new full suspension 29-er from Octane One is still in the (advanced) development stage and will hit the market in spring 2019.

The bike will be available in 3 sizes: S, M and L. The geometry will be up to date with the “long, low and slack” mantra. Don’t be fooled by the sample bike’s specification – we plan too keep things more economic and hit the market with an RRP below €2000. That obviously doesn’t mean compromising the functionality and the fun factor of the bike (dropper post included).

Grinding gravel with the Gridd!

We present to you – the GRIDD – our gravel frozen blue gravel grinder!
The GRIDD was designed by the same RnD team responsible for the award winning Rondo Ruut bikes and NS Bikes RAG+. Compact and vivid geometry (not a typical “granny bike” geo, that you can find in a lot of gravel bikes out there), 1×11 drivetrain from SRAM, fast rolling Kenda Flintridge gravel tires, disc brakes and carbon fork is all you need to ride all your favourite gravel and forest paths.

IMG_5359 web

Looking for a longer bike trip? No problem – the GRIDD got all the rack, bottle and mudguard mounts you will need, so it can be easily adapted for an adventure machine. There is also a lot of room for bigger volume tires (even 650b x 48C) if you plan to ride in rougher terrain.
If you want to know all the technical details of the GRIDD – go to the product page. The product is also available as a frame set. The GRIDD’s are available through our dealers network or our online shop!

Octane One bikes are back!

34963264_10213096911430672_5441864456139177984_n

Octane One gets back in the bikes game! After a quite few years, we have decided to restart offering complete builds based on our tried and tested frames. We’re launching an early 2019 collection with 5 models from different biking ballparks.
First up is the 29″ wheeled trail hardtail bike – the Prone. The frame’s geometry is really playful, tough and yet “pedal friendly” so it’s a good choice for your everyday MTB to rip on your local trails. 1×10 drivetrain from Shimano/Suntour is simple and efficient and wide WTB tires will not let you down even on the rocky sections.

Secondly, the Gridd, a versatile gravel grinder. The heart of this bike is an alloy frame with carbon fork. The geometry is tight and pretty aggressive – it’s not a typical “granny bike” geo, that you can find in a lot of gravel bikes out there. 1×11 SRAM Apex drivetrain, super fast Kenda Flintrige tires and disc brakes completes the package. The frame has a lot of racks, mudguards mounting holes so you can easily transform the GRIDD into a reliable adventure machine.

The Melt is an entry level dirt jumper, based on a well known ZIRCUS frame. This bike’s got all it takes to get you hooked on the dirt jumping game: lightweight and strong aluminium frame with pro geometry tested by the FMB World Tour riders, RST DIRT fork, strong BMX cranks and rear disc brake. It can be a perfect base for later upgrade while your skills improve.

If you’re rather an urban animal, we’ve also got a bike for you. The ZOID is a fixie with a flip-flop hub, which means that it can also be used as a singe-speed. Tough and solid steel frame, barspinable fork, flat bar and fat 46C rubbers will make you rule the streets and pavements in your town!

The last, but not least – the KODE.This single-speed commuter is built around a great and versatile steel frame made from custom butted TANGE tubes. Reliable drivetrain, disc brakes and all the fender and racks mounts you can think of, make the KODE your best pal in everyday commuting.

The Octane One bikes are available through our dealers and distributors.

The GRIDD – (G)o, (R)ide (I)t (D)ay after (D)ay…

Octane One entering the drop bar game. The GRIDD is a great base to build a versatile gravel grinder or even more than that.

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.Gridd_8 copy

(de)KODE your ride!

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).

IMG_6024_edit

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.

IMG_6210_edit

The frame is disc brake compatible (IS standard) and the rear brake mount is adjustable, so you can move the calliper along with the wheel in the dropouts. 

IMG_5975_edit

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:

Shredding trails on the Octane One Prone!

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.

 

New jewel in the crown – the Octane One Belter pedals!

After the disclosure of Prone frame, it’s about time to present next new product from our 2017 collection. We present to you – the Belter pedals!

The Belters replace our top end pedals Static PROs. They also roll on sealed bearings but are lower and lighter than their predecessors (a pair weighs ~ 380g) . Long, solid pins provide lot of grip.

The Belters will be available in 3 colors: black, blue and red, and are expected to be in stock late March.
