CHROMAG BIKES – Whistler’s Finest
Chromag like designing stuff themselves. That’s how they started, by making the frames and parts they always wanted. It starts with their own personal use and extends to the community in one of the best testing environments in the world, in the rugged Coast Mountains of British Columbia, Canada. As they grow they are continually evolving and refining their designs and expanding the product offering.
They are a passionate group of mountain bikers who have chosen a lifestyle centred around mountain biking. They value quality products that are suitable for their style of riding, they are creative in their style and their sport, and they are committed to providing exceptional customer service.
INDUSTRY NINE – The new phase of Industry Nine
The only constant is change. Like any advance forward, change is informed by any number of factors – determination, adaptation, survival instincts and thousands of trial and error sets. Every ride, every trail and every hour in the saddle is built into the DNA of Hydra and 101. Hydra is designed with lightning quick 690 POE resulting in 0.52° between engagements offering the rider previously unheard of responsiveness. This near instantaneous engagement allows the bike to claw up the most technical climbs, manual at a split seconds notice and rocket out of every corner.
Confident and capable of cleaning the A-line yet budget friendly to save up for a season of bucket list rides, the 101 hub stays true to our performance heritage here at Industry Nine. Featuring a dual phased-pawl drive mechanism accomplishing 90 POE and 4° engagement by way of a six pawl driver and 45 tooth drivering, 101 takes a no-nonsense approach in welcoming riders to Industry Nine. Welcome to the new phase of Industry Nine. Evolve. Innovate. Ride. Repeat.
At first, Title wasn’t a brand; it was just a small idea. Brett Rheeder needed components that could handle the abuse of freeriding at the highest level. Since he wasn’t excited about the options that were available, he decided to design the parts himself. The idea progressed from producing a handlebar with clean styling into sketches and prototypes of stems, saddles, seatposts and eventually wheels.
He knew that he wouldn’t be able to create a brand like this without drawing on the experience and knowledge of other riders. Making Title real required input from other people who push the boundaries of what’s possible on bikes.
Now, over two years later, the brand is launching with products that they’ve designed, tested and proven at the biggest mountain bike competitions in the world. From Rampage to Crankworx, they’ve climbed to the top. Countless rounds of feedback from their team and prototyping with the factories have refined Title, and now they’re ready to share what they’ve been working on. It’s been a long road to get to this point, but short in terms of where they plan to go.
