Bombtrack Beyond 1
Complete builds £1900
The Beyond is Bombtrack’s expedition machine.
If the Beyond was a car it would be a Land Rover Defender, tough and dependable and willing to go wherever you’re willing to pedal. The Beyond has proven itself on countless journeys, not least when our friend Marc Maurer rode 5600Km from Istanbul to Tehran. Designed as a bike packers dream, the Beyond features mounting options for front and rear racks as well as up to five bottle cages. All mounted to a double butted steel frame with carefully selected tubings, to do the most important job of an adventure bike, to be strong and light. Replaceable derailleur hanger and 73mm mountain bottom bracket shell to help clear bigger tyres.
The geometry of the bike gives a comfortable and stable riding position even when loaded. The specially flared handlebar, although a little strange at first, offers more hand positions, helping the shoulders and upper body stay relaxed for hours in the saddle. The SRAM Apex 2×10 drivetrain provides a smooth simple gear change paired with the more durable mountain bike spec GX and X5 derailleurs. So whatever journey you have in mind remember the Beyond is willing, if you are.
