Altitude

£1,000.00

The latest addition to our range of titanium bikes is the Altitude. Why on earth would we call this mountain bike the ‘Altitude’? Because on Earth we have a mountain called Putha Hiunchuli and in October 2022 a Guiness World Record attempt is taking place to scale this mountain to its summit 7246m. Two Vaaru titanium mountain bikes will be carried up and ridden down from its summit making them the highest bicycles ever ridden. Neil Laughton and Kevin Byrne are taking on this incredible challenge.
Our job was to create a bike for this task and the brief was simple, here is the checklist.
1: Great for ascending when the terrain allows.
2: Strong enough to take on the unforgiving descent.
3: Superb descending control in a mixture of terrain.
4: Light.
The Vaaru Altitude will join production in 2023 and is available to reserve as a FRAME ONLY option with a £1000 deposit for delivery in September 2023. Contact us to discuss your next purchase. Full frame cost is £2199.
