Forge Stainless

Just like you; we are purists when it comes to bicycles. There’s no purer feeling than riding a silky smooth steel frame, and there’s no purer look than a stainless steel frame.

Following the success of our Chromoly Forge in 2021, the next chapter was always going to be stainless. We wanted a material to feel as good as it looked and when strength, stifness and weight were factored in we concluded that MS3 by KVA Stainless was the perfect material.

Feel The Steel

KVA Stainless

The approach that KVA Stainless have towards their MS3 stainless astounded us. Finding a manufacturer that considered weight, strength, safety and stiffness in equal measures was perfect; finding one that spoke Dan’s language was even better.

The resulting bike has a traditional look and aesthetic, paired with modern, aggressive geometry and mind-blowing ride-feel.

  • 29 Inch Wheels
  • 140-160mm front travel
  • KVA MS3 Stainless Steel
  • Brushed finish with gloss clear coat
  • Investment cast chainstay yoke for maximum tyre clearance (2.6”)
  • ISCG05 mount
  • 2x Bottle cage mounts on the downtube
  • SRAM UDH (Universal Derailleur Hanger)
  • External cable routing
  • Threaded bottom bracket

We set out with one objective for the Forge; make this our most aggressive hardtail ever. The geometry is designed to rail and carve like no other hardtail, it just makes you want to ride aggressively. Combine this with the classic skinny-tubed aesthetic and I don’t see myself riding another hardtail again.
