It could be the only bike you ever need

Frames from £1,105, Full bikes from £2,395

The Stoater is designed to be a versatile bike at home on road, towpaths, singletrack and pretty much any terrain you can throw at it. With a full complement of braze-ons and a stable but comfortable ride, the Stoater makes an exceptional performance touring or gravel bike.

Built from high-spec custom blend tubing from legendary Italian tube manufacturers Columbus and Dedacciai, we wanted this bike to be an antidote to the uninspiring steel touring bikes of yesterday. Now you don't have to sacrifice fun and speed for stability and load carrying capabilities.

The Stoater, because of its geometry and tubeset, gives you everything you want in a predictable, fast tourer. Versatility is key, that's why your as likely to see a Stoater doing an Alpine tour in the summer as you are doing laps at the local 'cross race in winter.

Mudguard and rack options make the Stoater the perfect choice for your daily commute and options for bigger tyres opens up alternative routes you might not have considered previously (650B Road Plus and/or 2” 700c). The Praxis super compact chainset option means you can ditch the triple chainrings when in the mountains – and dynamo, lighting and USB charging options keep you visible and connected when off-grid or on the daily commute.

The Stoater frame is designed around the flat mount disk brake standard with 12mm bolt-thru axles front and rear – as well as the option to upgrade to our modular 100+ drivetrain platform. This allows the frame to be compatible with Rohloff or singlespeed drivetrains (including Gates Carbon Belt Drive) in addition to a standard derailleur setup.

Note some of the images on this page show some upgrades (such as modular dropouts and wheels) and do not reflect the base model.
