The Octane 6-4 Disc has evolved from our previous rim brake design which received 10/10 reviews; we’ve been working hard to make it even better.
Increased diameter tubing from double butted 6AL4V titanium makes it light, stiff and responsive while still retaining the ride feel you’d expect from a quality titanium frame. The Octane 6-4 Disc is compatible with SRAM eTap AXS and Shimano Di2. The larger T47 shell can internally route the rear hydraulic hose with space for the new SRAM DUB bottom bracket axle for greater stiffness. The Octane 6-4 Disc is made for speed with superior comfort and precise handling.
This Octane 64 Disc has been specially created for The Dubai International Bicycle Exhibition. What could we possibly exhibit to make visitors stop and take a second look? Having recently visited Dubai only a few months before the exhibition I was looking for inspiration for our next show stopping custom build. My photo library was full of gold sculptures and gold clad buildings. Opulence and design innovation seemed to be the key, so for this bicycle it was time to buy some pure 24ct gold, pull out all the stops.
Gold is a beautiful colour, combined with Titanium it looks amazing but we needed a contrasting colour to set the gold off. We found inspiration in the white of the UAE flag, it represents cleanliness, honesty, peace and purity. Adding some pearl white makes it sparkle in the sun. Only one coat though otherwise it tends to add a cream tone.
70 painstaking hours of preparation, paint and gilding 24ct gold leaf has turned this bicycle into the best bespoke build we’ve ever created.

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 took place to scale this mountain to it’s summit 7246m. Two Vaaru titanium mountain bikes will be carried up and ridden down from its summit […]
