Few disciplines lend themselves so perfectly to a titanium frame as cyclocross. In a sport where durability, speed and ride quality are critical, titanium bikes shine brightest. The Broken Arrow delivers on the material’s promise in spades with the light weight, stiffness and vibration damping ability expected of a modern top-tier cyclocross bike, with the additional benefit of titanium’s durability and crashworthiness. Equipped with disc brakes, thoughtful cable routing and generous mud clearance, the Broken Arrow is ready to lead races from tape to tape. What makes titanium the ideal material for the Broken Arrow? A well designed titanium frame strikes the perfect balance of low weight, smooth ride quality, and remarkable durability. 3Al-2.5V titanium offers a strength-to-weight ratio far better than aluminum or steel, which allows us to achieve more frame stiffness with less material. What makes titanium the stuff of framebuilding legend, however, is the material’s ability to soak up bumps and vibration. A great titanium frame keeps you feeling fresh in the saddle through to the last lap of a cyclocross race, but with none of the overdamped, wooden ride quality of many carbon frames.
“The Broken Arrow was No. 22’s entry in best cyclocross bike. Like last year, this category was arguably the most difficult to judge because so many of the entrants were so well considered. At minimum, each of the entrants had to show incredible construction, and the Broken Arrow help set the bar high in that regard. The welds were among the best we saw in this category.”
