Bombtrack – Hook AL 2017
Although we love our steel bikes (as you might have guessed), there will always be a certain lure to the aggressive and oversized forms of an Aluminum frame that will make us stop and stare. The Hook AL takes our established Hook bikes and gives it a more race-oriented flavor. The geometry has been tweaked and components selected to back up this purpose, from the Clement MXP tires to the Apex 1×11 driver train, the Hook AL is clear in its purpose. The 7005 double butted alloy frame with oversized down tube and square section chain stays provide a super stiff base to ensure all the energy goes into the rear wheel. Up front the steerer tube is tapered with a matching carbon bladed fork to ensure handling is pin point accurate. The Hook AL is easily kept under control thanks to the new double butted CX-10 flared drop bar and TRP Spyre brakes and the Pro saddle provides a healthy landing platform for those more lethargic re-mounts.
