As we head into 2020, we’re really excited to be boosting our offering of all-road, adventure, gravel, and touring bikes with the addition of Bombtrack to our range. As is the case every time we bring a new brand into our line-up, this has been brewing behind the scenes for a while. Throughout the whole process these are bikes that have impressed, and the people behind the brand have made it one that we’re proud to be working with.
Although Bombtrack drew us in from the first time we saw them, it’s important to us that we only bring bikes we truly love to our customers. We can wholeheartedly say that Bombtrack more than fulfills this requirement. Managing to achieve greatness in a specialised area of cycling, while also offering a comprehensive and diverse range, is a difficult balance to strike. Bombtrack has done this in style.
The Bombtrack range sits on a spectrum from “all-road” through gravel and adventure to off road expeditions and global touring. This isn’t a brand developed for professional road or MTB teams – it’s a brand for all types and levels of explorer and adventurer, whatever the terrain, whatever the surface, whatever the distance, whatever the speed.
Over the past couple of years there’s been a significant evolution in the cycling world. People are riding for further, longer, and over much more varied terrain than ever before. This is reflected in what our customers are now requiring in a bike, and also what we in store love to do. We’re really looking forward to be working with a brand that is passionate about the ‘alternative’ side of cycling.
Listed below are the key models we’ll be working with, along with the best-sellers we’ll have on display in 2020.
The Hook EXT is Bombtrack’s best selling bike for good reason. Quite apart from its beautiful and hard wearing anodized paint finish, the Hook EXT ticks every box that a hard-riding gravel rider could wish for. A premium quality steel frame, paired with a beautifully designed carbon fork delivers the optimum blend of stiffness, strength, reliability and low weight. Featuring a full set of luggage bosses and huge tyre clearance the Hook EXT is ready to charge through the most extreme of gravel adventures.
” I love to see a bike that’s completely ready for bikepacking or light touring just as it is, and the Hook EXT is exactly that. Everything is accounted for braze on-wise: three on each blade of the fork, six within the frame (allowing for lots of water bottle placement options if you’re running a partial framebag), and two below it, plus provision for mudguards, ideal for winter commuting. There are eyelets for a direct mount top tube bag, too. ” Bikepacking.com

The Bombtrack HOOK EXT-C is outrageously responsive while at the same time being equipped for anything you or the trail can throw at it. When you want to go wild places fast, there simply isn’t a better bike for the job.
“It’s smooth and swift on the road, and insanely good fun off the road in the trails and woods, with bags of enthusiasm and planted handling that will have you grinning from ear to ear.” RoadCC.
A gravel racer, a modern touring bike or an audacious all-road audax machine? Take your pick – the Bombtrack Audax AL has it all covered…superbly and in style. The Audax AL features a premium hydroformed aluminium frame that uses optimised butting profiles to reduce weight and increase compliance. With plentiful clearance, it can swallow up wide tyres or be set-up with mudguards as needed. Employing short chainstays, it’s a bike that’s happy to change lanes quickly, but yet remains solidly planted over the roughest of surfaces thanks to a larger than average contact patch.

The Bombtrack Audax is a true all-road bike that refuses to be bound by convention, and lays claim to be one of the most versatile “back road” bikes on the market, switching back and forth from pavement to dirt and gravel without missing a beat. A robust, refined and adaptable Columbus Cromor frame is the starting point. With through-axles and a wide threaded bottom bracket, it should survive a lifetime of intense use, as will its lightweight full carbon adventure fork.

Made to cross countries and continents via all kinds of roads and trackways, the Beyond is Bombtrack’s most affordable adventure-touring bike.

The Bombtrack Beyond+ is a bike for big adventures on the rough stuff – it’s lively when ridden unloaded but remains super stable once laden with bikepacking bags.

The Bombtrack Arise Tour offers a super deep classic finish, yet entirely modern design. This all-road super-tourer has all the features and carefully selected components to take you on any journey.
We hope you’re as excited as we are about this awesome new brand, and a year of adventure and exploration on the bike in 2020.
