This Titanium Gravel Bike Is A Custom-Grade Off-Road Complete

Contemporary gravel bikes are an odd bunch. They look the part of an advanced, road-faring cycle platform, but boast a slew of impregnable parts to shield them from the harsh realities of off-road riding. While most of the variants in this genre are inherently drab, Sage Titanium has opted to take a different path with the introduction of its luxurious-looking Storm King.

The Storm King is a customized cycling platform that blurs the boundaries between on and off-road riding, soliciting yet another drop-bar design to fuel expansive exploration. But the bike’s purposeful silhouette is where its similarities to the genre’s alternative offerings end. To set the Storm King apart from its peers, Sage Titanium has introduced a lightweight but durable frame outfitted with bottle cages, rack mounts on the front and rear, and additional bosses for bolt-on frame bags. The company’s patented Cable Clip System, which streamlines traditional shift routing by bringing internal electronic/external mechanic cabling into the realm of synonymous use, adds an unconventional touch to the hybrid. A bi-ovalized down tube and bespoke frame design help to reduce torsional forces on the Storm King’s components, while an industrial finish and curved seat tube bring unique elements to riders who place an emphasis on snappy performance. Better yet, you’ll be able to choose between Cane Creek or Chris King components, a Sage or Brooks saddle, and medium to high-range GRX drivetrains when customizing your dream bike. If you’re looking to procure one of your own, head to Sage’s website, where the base model starts at $8,980.

Purchase: $8,980+
