Drifter X

Fast Everywhere

Aggressive handling and high stiffness under power make the Drifter X fast on any surface.

Sometimes less is more.

By shedding some of the Swiss-Army-Knife versatility of our popular Drifter model, the Drifter X gains sharpness and focus for aggressive rides. With quick handling built around up to 700x45mm tires, a short wheelbase, and high levels of drivetrain stiffness the Drifter X is ready for gravel races or fast riding on mixed surfaces.

Compared to our Drifter model, the Drifter X features shorter chainstays and reduced stack for more aggressive handling, as well as construction upgrades such as a tapered head tube with internal headset and titanium seat mast together with our bespoke cast titanium mast topper.

"One of the most impressive bikes I've ever seen."

"In my many years of attending and judging the awards at NAHBS, it was one of the most impressive bikes I’ve ever seen, and that’s no small feat when displayed in a room full of everyone’s best work." -

Patrick Brady on No. 22's Best-in-Show win at NAHBS 2019

Optional finishes

Make your No. 22 truly yours. In addition to our standard raw finish, every No. 22 is available in ten optional anodized finishes. Our unique anodizing process gives us the widest range of anodized titanium colours available.
