The Bahamut v.2 road bike is simple, fast, and elegant, meant to inspire you to jump on your Dragon and ride. The Bahamut is super lightweight at just 19 pounds because we use premium carbon fiber to make the Bahamut’s bike frame and front fork. The carbon fiber is not only lightweight, but it’s extremely strong and comfortable. Carbon fiber absorbs bumps in the road, giving you a comfortable Cadillac like feel but with the handling of a Porsche.
With the Bahamut v.2 we’ve achieved simplicity without sacrificing anything. We use SRAM’s Apex 11 speed drivetrain instead of the traditional 22 or 24 speeds, and we’ve eliminated the front derailleur to further simplify shifting and maintenance. Who needs more gears when less will do? Check out our article on gear ratios here to dive a little deeper into why 11 speeds is just as good as 22 speeds....
The Dragon is fast, really fast, and able to reach high speeds easily. Our road bike is also nimble, something you will notice immediately on your first ride. Check out our customer reviews, the bike is like nothing else you’ve ridden; it turns on a dime, takes off quickly from a stop, and is a joy to ride uphill.
The Bahamut’s frame geometry is meant to be fast and comfortable for everyone. We’ve designed a bike that is meant for comfort on a short ride as well as an all day affair. The top tube is angled down so you won’t have to strain your neck to look up as you’re riding. Traditional road bikes are focused on being aerodynamic, with comfort often an afterthought. Why not have both? Spend the day racing the Bahamut road bike with friends, or take a quick spin around your neighborhood, you’ll be comfortable on your Bahamut.
The Bahamut v.2 road bike is meant to last. Backed by our six year warranty, the Bahamut road bike is meant to grow with you as a bike rider. As you become faster and more experienced on your Bahamut you may want to consider trying cycling pedals, or add-in a sweet set of carbon fiber wheels, and your Bahamut will be up for your new challenge. This bike is an investment that’s meant to last you for years of great riding, but our bike also won’t break the bank. The Bahamut road bike isn’t cheap, but compared with other bikes from the big name brands, you can easily pay $2k to $5k for a similar carbon fiber bike, donning similar components.
What’s the difference between us and them? Check out our article about the bike industry here. In short we love riding, operate a small office in Seattle, and have cut the fluff out of buying a bike. No gimmicks, or crazy color schemes, just pure bicycling at its best.
