The LOCUM geometry is bang on for a balanced cross-country/trail hard tail. And because of its more classic geometry this bike will immediately feel familiar when you handle it.
In addition to the fact that you immediately sit on the bike with full confidence, the comfortable feeling also dominates. Because you sit fairly upright, you soon have the tendency to enjoy the landscape and not to lie flat with your nose on the wheel and only have an eye for the chrono. The Plus tires will absorb the vibrations and the small shocks very well and, in line with the wheels, the titanium frame also does its job to releive the rider very well.
Once you are up to speed, it does not cost you too much effort to maintain that speed and the wide tires also do not penalize in that case.
On technical climbs, the grip is phenomenal and the balanced seating position ensures that you also get up on what seem like impossible climbs. The bicycle is very manoeuvrable and playful on flat and curvy single tracks. And thanks to the rack mounts you can mount a rack and some panniers anytime you feel like discovering the world.
ENDURANCE LIKE NO OTHER
Say goodbye to cheap excuses, because a Pilot endures all circumstances. Our titanium frames are built to last, so be prepared to conquer the elements in winter, spring, summer and fall. Let’s wave to the riders that have to stay on the beaten paths because they are scared that their carbon bike will get scratched. Just trust your Pilot.
EASY LIKE SUNDAY MORNING
Whatever the day, whatever the weather. Your Pilot makes every day feel like an easy Sunday morning. Leave your bicycle tools at home, because the Pinion gearbox does not give up easily. Just enjoy a care free ride on a custom made titanium bike, or on one of our well-known models. You decide, you’re the titan.
