Bikepacking 2.0: the new super versatile generation.
The advent of 29” wheeled mountain bikes added many customization possibilities that allow folks to select the perfect bike today. Riders no longer use their mountain bike for a single discipline, but switch from marathon races to adventure trips, and we realized that what many excellent frames are missing is versatility. They lack the ability to adapt to different uses.
Locomotive has developed a range of high-performance frames that can handle an XC race with the ideal set-up and performance but also adapt to longer Bikepacking adventures, using different geometries.
With Locomotive, riders don’t need to own multiple bikes for maximum performance with different uses. They can have a single frame that’s adaptable.
Locomotive has developed these frames without any compromise on quality and versatility.
