2017 Moots Vamoots RSL
Moots bikes have a reputation of lasting as long as you will, but few talk about the intricate process that the titanium goes through to get ready to become a Moots bike frame.
It starts with straight gauge US made titanium. Then that titanium is sent to Reynolds in the UK who puts it through the butting process in keeping with the specifications sent by Moots. Through Reynolds, the RSL is the only model in the Moots lineup that gets some help from our friends on the other side of the pond. When Moots gets the tubes back they use their wizardry in mitring and TIG welding. Every bike is made to order, with custom geometry and additional options aplenty.
The process of butting the tubes makes the junctions where the tubes meet thicker, while the walls are made thinner. The magic of butting shaves weight, but not stiffness from the bike. And when you combine the butted tube set with Moot’s tapered technology, it maximizes bottom bracket stiffness for quick acceleration. What you ultimately get is a light bike, that does not sacrifice strength and stiffness. The combination of comfort and stability will give you the sense of increased overall speed
Your Moots is truly yours. With nine stock sizes to choose from and custom geometry as an option, rest assured you will find your perfect fit. Everything from the tubes, angles, to the tube diameters, and wall thicknesses are size selected to complement you perfectly and create the perfect ride.
The Vamoots RSL comes with a bunch of standard options such as internal electronic compatible, wireless shift routing, pump peg, chain hanger, custom sizing, +1cm head tube length and etched finish” It comes with a 44mm headtube, increasing stiffness up front and micro diameter seat stays for a lightweight tactile ride.
