Thunderhawk | Road Plus Titanium Gravel Bike

Go Bikepacking on the Weekends. Drop The Pack on Wednesdays.

A garage full of bikes is pretty cool. A garage with just a Thunderhawk is even cooler. The titanium gravel bike that revolutionized BBCo, Thunderhawk lends itself as a performance-minded 650b road plus bike that’s equipped to handle all road adventure rides, mixed-terrain endurance races, gravel grinders, and long bikepacking trips.

 

Change wheels and tires, not bikes. The Thunderhawk is custom-engineered to accommodate an array of tire widths and diameters. Throw on your 700c road wheels and drop the hammer on a local group road ride, then change to your 27.5 mtb wheels and hit the singletrack. Or, pop on your 700x45c gravel bike tires and go stir up some dust on roads less-traveled. Meet the titanium road plus bike that offers exceptional versatility, resilience, and speed. Thunderhawk is your go-to bike for gravel, snow, and anything in between.
