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.

Knowing the punishment that cross bikes are subject to every weekend, the complete Broken Arrow strikes the perfect balance between light weight and durability. A Chris King headset, 3T stem, carbon seatpost and cross-specific carbon bar and No. 22 carbon cross thru-axle fork are all among the highest quality, most durable components available. SRAM's cyclocross specific Force CX1 groupset serves up crisp shifts without the dropped chains and mud catching issues of a front derailleur. SRAM's outstanding Force hydraulic disc brakes provide great stopping power and excellent modulation in all conditions.

The Broken Arrow is constructed from the highest quality 3Al-2.5V cold worked stress relieved (CWSR) titanium tubing. The frame’s main tubes are each fully butted by CNC lathe, varying wall thickness for each size of frame. The tubing is then precisely shaped, mitered and welded by some of the top titanium craftsmen in the industry.

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.

As with all No. 22 Bicycle Company frames, the Broken Arrow has been built to last, and its craftsmanship is backed by our ten year warranty.

Winner, Best Cyclocross Bikes (NAHBS 2015)

BikeRumor (December 24, 2014)

“At this point, we have come to expect gorgeous, functional bikes from the Canadian company building their titanium fleet in the U.S., and the Broken Arrow is no different. ... Bicycles out of No. 22 boast impressive welds, immaculate finishing, but are still built to get dirty."

Pez Cycling News (March 24, 2015)

“Walking away with “Best Cyclocross” at NAHBS is a particularly tough nut to crack, as it’s a category that seems to attract everybody that’s ever made anything you could attach two wheels to. The Reactor and the [Broken Arrow] are not “special” relative to what No. 22 are doing every day. The lineup is small, but it’s stacked and the work all looked like the guys have been building tip-top of the line bikes for a long time (as their builders have…). This is a good place to spend your money."

Red Kite Prayer (March 10, 2015)

“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."
