Flyer

The Flyer borrows not only the tried, tested and loved geometry from our longstanding Equilibrium model but also its’ practical aspects like generous clearances, long-drop brake calipers and mudguard eyelets that make it such a popular UK choice for obvious, rather damp reasons.

The new ‘Mljonir’ double-butted, seamless Chromoly tubeset opens up a little room for us to go full circle, adding back in the much-loved carbon fork that graced the original Flyer back in 2006/7; helping to drop weight and act as a nice buffer between the road and the handlebars.

This 'single-speed Equilibrium' makes for a great winter trainer, and, with the majority of the UK's roads in a sorry state, never more so than in the depths of the winter months, we've taken advantage of the clearances and added 28c tyres paired to new-school wide 22/17mm Alex AT470 rims. The result of the wider base is a vastly improved tyre profile and an increased interior volume, allowing lower pressures and increased comfort.

The 46/18T gearing gives a perfect 'middle-of-the-road' ratio (68.4 gear inches) ensuring your knees don't pop on the climbs but you're not spinning out too quickly on the flat either. We've also kept the 120mm track rear spacing and flip-flop (fixed/free) rear hub for those wanting the option to run fixed.

Functional, reliable and as-practical-a-singlespeed as you're ever likely to encounter.

Features

One speed to rule them all!

46/18T gearing gives a perfect 'middle-of-the-road' ratio (68.4 gear inches) ensuring you'll not spin-out too easily on the flats and your knees won't pop on the climbs. Simple, lighter, easier to maintain and will absolutely, 100% make you a stronger rider* (*not guaranteed)

Mjölnir chromoly

AKA ‘Thor’s Hammer’ and pronounced ‘Myol-n(ee)r‘. Our new double-butted, cold-drawn, seamless, Taiwanese chromoly tubeset also goes by the aliases of 4130, Cr-Mo and Chromo. It’s a like-for-like replacement for other, identical branded chromoly tubing and ultimately means a saving can be passed onto you via either a healthy price drop or a little more room for up-speccing without sacrificing performance.

28c rubber & wide rims

New-school wide (22/17mm) Alex AT-470 rims combined with 28c Conti Ultra Sport II tyres give a vastly improved tyre profile and an increased interior volume, allowing lower pressures and increased comfort without a loss of speed. Try them at 80PSI and see for yourself!

Rack & 'guard ready

Looking to turn the Flyer into a daily commuter? No problem - the built-in rear rack mounts, long-drop 57mm brakes and mudgaurd eyelets allow simple and easy fitting
