The Hook range has come a long way from the original bike of 2015. Originally developed as a steel CX and gravel bike from which now multiple variations have spawned. The Hook 1 remains closest to the original bike, with oversized tubes welded into a multi-purpose geometry. The Hook 2 advanced things with the addition of thru axles and utilizing the mountain bike derived 1x drivetrain from SRAM, and upgraded tubing courtesy of Columbus. New for 2018 the Hook WMN has been built from the ground up with women's specific ergonomics in mind providing an optimized sizing and component selection to offer a bike that fits like a glove. The Hook EXT took the Hook range a step further, and proved to be a huge hit with riders looking for bigger tires in a gravel bike package. New for 2018 is a full carbon fiber version offering the same tire clearances, proven SRAM Rival-1 drivetrain and anything cage ready. Gravel riding just got lighter!
As the closest relative to the original Hook, the Hook 1 is really where it all starts. Starting with a geometry that is well balanced for cross, gravel or even eating up road miles, the Hook is very versatile, yet comfortable with whatever task lies ahead. The oversized down tube, BB30 shell, and straight head tube clearly show the Hook's intentions as a durable do-it-all machine.
