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.
The creation of touring bikes is the purest distillation of what bicycle manufacturing is all about. It demands experience and meticulousness in equal measure. Nowhere else does the customer notice so quickly whether the manufacturer has kept their promises. Nowhere else are the effects so profound, when the finished product isn’t what it should be. With the potential result that a rider has to abandon his or her tour.
At Falkenjagd, that just can’t even be a possibility. For us cycling means freedom, and that is what we promise our customers when we present the Hoplit ST Reiserad. We agonise over the seemingly most unimportant details, in order to ensure that you have as little as possible to worry about when you are on the road. The result is a touring and expedition bike that guarantees piece of mind, even when taken off the beaten track. The extremely stable, scratch- and corrosion-resistant titanium frame is designed with a longer head tube and shorter top tube to produce a more upright riding position – this helps avoid shoulder and neck problems during long hours in the saddle.
The Hoplit ST has a lower bottom bracket compared to the Hoplit RS MTB. This lowers the centre of gravity, that would otherwise be raised when luggage is carried – the result is increased stability. The bike can be ridden with 650B or 700C wheels, according to whether the priority is for a softer ride over rough terrain or reduced rolling resistance on tarmac: flexibility that allows the Hoplit ST to double as a tough expedition machine and a smooth, efficient and stylish way of simply getting from A to B.
The Rohloff hub, with its 14 closely-spaced gears, is practically maintenance-free, and over two decades has proved itself to tourers and city-riders alike: some have now been ridden for over 100 000 kilometres!
The Hoplit Rohloff can be built with 650B or 700C wheels, depending on whether it is mainly for use on tarmac or rougher terrain. Various disc brake systems are available; at the front, rotors up to 203mm can be fitted. A SON front light, B&M rear light, and USB charger are included, along with stainless-steel low-riders from Tubus. As well as the regular Syntace build, a Titanium package based on Falkenjagd components is available, as well as a Tune Components package in a range of anodised colours.
