For 2019 we have made it possible to specify how you want your Vendetta, use the option buttons to design and create your own Vendetta based around our best-of-breed hardtail.
Choose your headtube The Vendetta is fully compatible with tapered forks either with the default straight 44 headtube or a tapered headtube.
Brake mounts/span> The 2019 Vendetta uses post mount (PM) rear braking mounts, the PM are set for 160mm rotors and we recommend a max rear rotor size of 185mm.
Choose your dropouts Dropouts - For 2019 we’re giving you the choice of dropouts whether it be clean and functional Breezer round dropouts, our Kingdom replaceable dropouts or for those who want extreme flexibility sliding dropouts. All based around a 148x12 boost rear spacing.
The sliding dropouts give you the option to adjust the ride of your Vendetta, so you can tune both tyre clearance and handling, and even run the Vendetta as a single speed. The dropouts will make the chainstay at its longest 420mm (29 x 2.5 compatible) and at its the shortest 400mm.
Choose your cable routing Probably the most personal part of your new Vendetta is where you want your cables? So, we’re offering you three options for routing your cables and hose in the main triangle; standard external c-clip guides, new bolt on alloy guides or stealth internally hidden routing.
Choose your finish The Vendetta ia available in our two classic finishes: raw or polished. Put simply raw finish is just as it implies, clean, exposed tubes and welds for all the world to see the quality of our manufacture. But do not worry titanium doesn't rust or corrode so theres no need for a clear coating like some steel raw frames. Polished finished is the same raw frame but it has been hand polished so the welds and tubing are shiny and clean.
The Vendetta is all about speed and fun. The first Vendetta we welded over 11 years ago, since then all our know-how and experience from designing and riding hardtail has gone into the Vendetta.
The Vendetta's signature short chainstay and a low-slung bottom bracket make it accelerate and corner like no other hardtail. It's geometry and chainstays are designed to run either 27.5 (650b) or 29er wheels with compromising the handling.
Today, the Vendetta's look is often copied by other many other newer bike brands but without the same understanding of what makes a rowdy titanium hardtail tick.
Our unrivalled experience in making titanium hardtail's means we've removed all undesired flex whilst maximising titanium’s built-in spring with unique custom tubing that gives the Kingdom Vendetta unrivalled handling and acceleration and makes it a best of breeds winner.
The Vendetta’s geometry has been carved to perfection after hundreds of hours of riding on all types of trails but we understand everyone’s different so we’re offering you the opportunity to customise the head angle and the seat angle of your new Vendetta in the options panel on this page.
If you are unsure about geometry you can use the default geo of 64.5 and 75 degrees, which we happen to think is perfect and will give you a great ride, or send us an email and we can help you adjust your Vendettas geometry.
The Vendetta is a low-slung missile, giving you loads of body clearance so you can throw the bike around when the trail gets rowdy. For 2019 we have 4 sizes available: small, medium, large and extra-large. To help you choose the correct size, we have made this chart.
Using REACH to help you get the right size?
We suggest the "Reach" measurement as a great starting point for choosing the right size Vendetta frame. The reach measurement tells you how the bike will feel when you are in an riding position standing on the pedals. Reach is the standard that the mountain bike industry uses so you can use it to compare other bikes.
