The Vendetta X2 uses the same Ti-3Al-2.5V aircraft grade Titanium tubing and is fabricated by the same welders that make all our Vendettas, we just simplified the frame and removed some of the expensive CNC details.
The CNC tapered Ti head tube is one of the biggest costs on our frames, so by using a straight 44 head tube we have removed a huge manufacturing expense. The 44 head tube means you can still use tapered forks with an external cup lower headset.
The Vendetta X2 uses tab brake mounts instead of post mounts and the dropouts are rounded Breezer style with a replaceable rear hanger rather than our custom CNC Kingdom dropouts.
The Vendetta X2 has external cable routing rather than internal routing, although we still have stealth routing on the seat tube for a dropper post.
Don't worry it's not yet another industry standard. It's just that when we decided to add the ISCG05 mount to the X2 we needed more space for clearance of 2.8 and 29" tyres so we had to slightly rotate the position of our ISCG05 to allow for positioning against the widened chainstay plate this means it may not be compatible with all chain devices especially when running 50T rear cog drives.
The X2 is an off the shelf titanium frame, this means we are unable to offer any customisation, if you need geometry and frame specification changes then the other Vendettas are for you.
We're offering the X2 in one finish, raw. Our most popular finish is a cleaned raw titanium with exposed welds for that au-naturale look.
The Vendetta X2 can be anything you want: 27.5, 27.5+ or 29er, this outstanding hardtail will accept all wheel options.
