While they typically lack the resources of larger companies, smaller boutique outfits often have the ability to churn out extremely high-quality products, with small-batch production that allows for a greater level of attention to detail and markedly better quality control. Portland’s Sage Titanium Bicycles wonderfully demonstrates this, with a steadily-growing range of high-end, titanium-framed bikes — the latest of which is the all-new Sage Flow Motion mountain bike.

Engineered from the ground up as an evolved take on a traditional all-mountain trail bike, the Flow Motion is a premium hardtail model that’s made in America from straight gauge 3/2.5 titanium tubing that’s fortified via an industrial-brushed finish. Alongside a set of 29” (x 2.4”) wheels shod in MAXXIS Assegai tires, the rigid-tailed MTB also features a 150mm fork with a 44mm offset that comes with a RockShox Lyric Ultimate front-end; though it can be upgraded to a Fox Factory 36 Kashima unit.

Other noteworthy elements on the Flow Motion include an English-threaded bottom bracket, all internally-routed brake and dropper lines, a boosted chainstay, and a 31.6mm seat post design. The bike can also be built out with the rider’s choice of a slew of configurable options that include a mechanical or electrical drivetrain, upgraded carbon fiber handlebars and wheels, and various headset and spacer choices, just to name a few.

Offered as a frame, frameset, or complete bicycle, the Sage Titanium Flow Motion Hardtail Mountain Bike is available now, with pricing starting from $4,300 for the a la cart chassis, $5,476 for the frameset, and $9,020 for the complete bike — which can exceed $11,000 when optioned with the most high-end components available. And, in addition to being offered in small, medium, large, and XL frame sizes, the Flow Motion also comes in 11 different decal color options.

Purchase: $4,300+
