Otso’s Waheela C Gets New Paint and Spec Upgrades for 2020

While we all dream about gravel races, bikepacking trips, and riding our favorite trails during road trips, the bike releases keep rolling out for all of us to enjoy these days. At least from the comfort of our home and personal devices. Otso’s lineup is impressive and their flagship gravel bike, the Waheela C, received a new look with new paint colors and graphics, as well as upgraded build spec options for 2020.

The Waheela C is available as a frame, fork, and headset for $2,550, or as a complete bike with Shimano GRX for $3,600. Find it on OtsoCycles.com.

The Waheela C’s details:
-Adjustable wheelbase: our patented Tuning Chip rear dropout system allows the wheelbase to be lengthened or shortened by up to 20mm and the bottom bracket height to be raised or lowered by 4mm. This allows the Waheela C to transform from a confident, stabile gravel bike (in the rear Tuning Chip position) to a nimble, agile option for CX races or local trails with tight corners.
-Giant tire clearance: this bike can fit 700c x 53mm, 650b x 53mm, or 29” x 2.1” tires. It’s a quick bike for racing gravel with a 700c x 35mm setup, and it’s been SO much fun riding snowy townie trails with 27.5” x 2.2” tires over the winter.
-EPS-molded carbon frame: it’s a lightweight bike that’s ready for a quick climb up the next punchy hill or sprinting away from the lead group.
-Inspired geometry: the rider is centered over the wheels for extra confidence and stability, while the longer top tube adds an aggressive, racy feel. Meanwhile, bowed seat stays make for a compliant rear triangle that’ll absorb bumps in the road and give you comfort while you’re spending all day on the saddle.

Otso’s Voytek Gets a New Look

Is Otso’s Voytek a plus MTB that can handle a 4.6″ fat tire? Or is it a fatbike that can roll on 27.5+ or 29+ wheels? The q-factor on the Voytek leads me to believe it’s a MTB frame with ample clearance for a 4.6″ fat tire. With the narrowest q-factor out of any other “fatbike” on the market because of its PF107BB spec, paired with a RaceFace Cinch crank and RF149 spindle, bringing the width to 183mm, the Voytek is designed to handle like a modern mountain bike. That’s because, with its unique Tuning Chip™ dropout system and 177×12 rear hub spacing, you can convert it to a hardtail with a dropper easily or run it as a fat bike. The options are endless.

New for 2020, the Voytek comes in a variety of color options and you can build one up at Otso to fit your fancy. Head on over to Otso to see more specs.

Otso Cycles Rises from Wolf Tooth Components

If there is one company that has made our lives easier in terms of gearing options, it’s Wolf Tooth Components. Everything they’ve introduced to the market has been smart, innovative and has opened the door to new, affordable drivetrain systems. It should come as no surprise that the guys behind Wolf Tooth have a few opinions as to how bicycles should be designed, which was the motivation for launching Otso Cycles.

Their introductory framesets are the Voytek, a carbon hardtail and the Warakin, a stainless steel all-road. See more details below and be sure to check out Otso Cycles!
