The Vendetta is the original rowdy titanium hardtail, originally designed and built some 14 years ago, one of the OG hardcore hardtails. Whilst we have tweaked the geometry over the years the Vendetta’s core genetics have remained the same, 'go fast', maximum stability and no weight compromises. Think fine wine, or a good malt! The X3 is the latest and greatest so far!
We're offering the Vendetta X3 in one finish, raw. Our most popular finish is a cleaned raw titanium with exposed welds for that au-naturale look. Not only it is hard to scratch, it cleans in the rain (mostly) and can be buffed up to a beautiful finish without much work. We are also offering the frames with a choice of decal colours, so you can customise you frame as much as you wish. Keep your eye out for a frame wrap kit too!
For large and xl versions of the frame, we have made the stand-over lower to retain a nicer shape with the top tube aligning better with the seat stays. Along with the development of larger drop seatposts we believe that we have nailed the stand-over on the X3 for the taller dude and dudettes. Long gone are the days of bikes getting taller for taller riders and good riddance.
Speaking of big old dropper posts, the X3 now has full stealth routing for a dropper through a new 'easy route' alloy entry, though, for now brake and gear routing is still external (can be internal upon request). We also, as we hope we have thought of everything provide a really useful “pokey tool” to help get those cables routed just right!
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. It also means you can run, angle sets and all sorts of other pokery jiggery if you like bar spins and the like.
Our new CNC rear PM brake tabs are a work of art, the stiffness and rigidity really help with keeping control of that back wheel and helping prevent the howl!
