Riding Ti is very special and like nothing else. I’m a lucky owner of the awesome Hex LS but I’ve always loved the clean look of hardtails, and especially the original hardcore ti hardtail with the coolest name in the industry… the Vendetta!
Following the release of the more affordable X2 version and a quick test-ride, I got immediately hooked and decided to build a perfect N+1 low maintenance winter bike that I can use around the UK. The bike is very versatile, has loads of clearance and super capable. It’s a lot of fun to ride and almost makes you forget you don’t have a rear shock.
Kingdom bikes are developed and tested with real prototypes so you always get a bike that is sorted, that really works and is not just a numbers or CAD exercise. Not only you get the best titanium bikes in the world but also the best customer service. Well done…again!
