The Everti 29R is a hardtail titanium 29er frame, designed and built in British Columbia.
Kurt Knock of Everti said the frame has been in development for about a year. It features 3/2.5 titanium, with double-butted top and seat tubes, and straight-gauge elsewhere. The downtube is oversized and ovalized at the head tube, and the head tube is longer than most 29ers to distribute the extra stress created by a longer fork, Knock said.
The frame also features a mini-gusset at the head tube/downtube juncture and full length cable housing.
A medium frame weights 1500 grams. Three production frame sizes fit riders from 5-foot-8 to 6-foot-4. The cost $1595 retail. Custom sizes cost $200 more.
