Esker Cycles Smokey Ti Hardtail


Esker Cycles Smokey Ti Hardtail

Esker Cycles is broadening its hardtail lineup with its most aggressive hardtail, the Smokey Ti. Let’s check it out…

Longer, lower, and slacker, the Smokey Ti has a 64.5º headtube angle and geometry optimized for a 160mm suspension fork. The frame has ample tire clearance, fitting up to a 2.6″ tire.

Check out our Esker Hayduke LVS and Japhy Ti review for other titanium Esker chassis. 

The Smokey Ti is constructed from seamless, butted, and cold-shaped 3/2.5 titanium, delivering a durable yet comfortable ride, and comes with Esker’s tried and true Portage Dropout System. Now updated with a Universal Derailleur Hanger (UDH). Portage Dropouts allow the frame to run with geared or singlespeed drivetrains and allow the rider to adjust chainstay length to fine tune the ride feel.

Prioritizing durability and ease of maintenance, the Smokey Ti has external cable routing, a threaded bottom bracket, and a 44mm head tube. The Smokey boasts four different water bottle and accessory mounting positions, including a 3-pack mount on the downtube for when you need a little extra carrying capacity.
