The Falkenjagd Aristos RS is no slave to fashion. And, in its originality, it stands out as one of the most modern racing bikes available, even when placed against the now ubiquitous carbon-fibre machines. It has by far the stiffest titanium frame on the market, at both the bottom bracket and the head tube. It’s setting the pace in racing bike development.
Riding a racing bike doesn’t have to mean hunching up like a pro racer. With the Aristos ST, “protecting your back” and “fast” are not mutually exclusive. The ST, as in “Sport Touring”, is our response to the demand for a durable, comfortable, long-distance, sporty road-bike.
Designed for: day-rides, road-riding, everyday use
With its innovative Pinion gearing system and optional belt drive (developed in-house), the indestructible Hoplit PI titanium tourer is built for extreme strength and reliability – good for tens of thousands of kilometres around the globe.
New experiences are at the centre of what it is to be human. Our cycling experiences, and those of the many touring cyclists with whom we keep in close contact, together form the basis of the ingenious concept that underpins this bicycle. Reliability redefined: the Falkenjagd Hoplit ST.
A race is a battle, and our principal opponent is found within us. And when we face this hardest and most stubborn adversary, we need to be well-equipped. The Hoplit RS, named after the German name for the hoplites of ancient Greece, is an unstoppable racing machine that catches the eye of athletes and engineers alike. Since 2011 it has been leading the field as the stiffest titanium frame on the market.
The Hoplit PI MTB taps into a theme that is central to our age: the trend towards rediscovering the essence of things. The bike’s simplicity and low maintenance requirements position it firmly as an uncomplicated day-ride mountain bike with first class handling characteristics.
Highly specialised, but nevertheless very adaptable: the Hoplit ST comes equipped with the world-beating Rohloff hub gear. In other words, built for eternity. And built for every time it demands you leave your comfort zone, get outside, and go do some biking.
Cycling from island to island across the Stockholm skärgård? Race fever at the Great Lakes Fatbike Series? Or maybe just relaxing with an ice cream, enjoying the view after a mellow trail ride? The Hektor Fat PI MTB is as well-engineered as it is luxurious, and is ready for anything.
The purebred Teleon is all about choice: 650B+ wheels with tyres up to 3.0" for low rolling resistance off-road plus masses of traction, or classic 700C rims for tyres up to 2.4" that put the focus on maximum speed on tarmac. Two bikes in one.
Our child-sized mountain bike may seem a bit over the top, but it’s built to become a family heirloom. Its low weight is ideal for smaller riders, and its immense durability means that it is a bike that can be passed on to new owners over decades. A piece of permanence that will span the generations.
Designed for: off-road, pump track, day rides, everyday use
When the future becomes now: The Hoplit PI e-tourer is our manifesto for a different way of covering the ground – maximum comfort and efficiency, whether you’re overtaking slower vehicles on your daily commute, or setting off on a fortnight-long tour through the mountains.
This bike isn’t just about delivering a rider and their luggage; it also supplies a generous amount of Californian lifestyle. The Hektor ST is built for that ultimate American invention: cruising. But those balloon tyres don’t always have to carry you to the ice cream café; they can also be the basis of a relaxed journey to work. Who says that commuting can’t be chilled?
There’s space on the rear rack for folders and a laptop, so there’s no need for a rucksack to spoil the experience. Rain won’t ruin the party either: full-length mudguards give protection against water coming from above and below. And the sealed Rohloff hub gears certainly won’t be troubled by any environmental influences. Because this bike isn’t just a summer machine, there’s a top-quality dynamo lighting system to keep you road-legal.
Gears on the Hektor ST come in the form of a 14-speed Rohloff hub gear, with evenly-spaced ratios and an overall range of 526% – but without the usual need for constant adjustment and maintenance. The bike can be ordered with either a Falkenjagd titanium fork or one of German Answer’s range of suspension forks in a selection of colours; it can also be supplied fitted with mudguards and a rear rack. Slender Curana mudguards are used, so as to not diminish the bike’s styling. Wooden handgrips, with concealed suspension, add the finishing touch. The wiring for the rear light runs through the top tube, seat tube and seat pin. Various options packages for handlebars, stem and seat pin mean that the bike can be built to perfectly match your your personal preferences.
