Our Kevin of Steel is here ready to save the world.
Have you ever heard of a titanium superhero? No, Superman is the man of S_T_E_E_L. While our Ti Kevin is staring in the pond, Kev of Steel is defending the planet from baddies. While Ti Kevin is busy grooming, our steel hero is defeating dictators and saving kittens from burning buildings.
Titanium may make a nice piece of jewellery, but swords are made of steel, and are the most honourable of weapons, reserved for nobility. Whether you’re protecting an empire, performing a decapitation or conducting a ritual sacrifice, steel is your material of choice.
Choose the wheels that suit your cycling style. Kevin can run either 700c wheels with 28-45mm tyres for Road/Gravel/Cyclocross or go full HellCat with 650b (27.5”) wheels running 1.8–2.2” tyres. You can even use two sets of wheels on the same bike to effectively have two bikes in one.
The custom solid steel yoke design allows Kevin to run some mad-dog tyres in 2 wheel sizes, and also stiffens the BB area under load to avoid frame flex.
Kevin comes equipped with rear rack mounts, fender mounts & 3 bidon mounts; it can be configured with either a 1x or 2x drivetrain. With huge tyre clearance across 2 wheel sizes,a longer wheelbase and a more stable platform, Kevin is perfect for day trips, weekenders, and multi-day bikepacking.

|How long will my Kevin of Steel take to ship?||If the frameset you have ordered is in stock, shipments normally take 2–3 weeks. If you have made a deposit on a pre-order Kevin of Steel, we will keep you updated with any developments on the estimated delivery date via email. Currently, the next batch of steel Kevins is due to be ready to ship before Christmas.|
|What front rack can I run?||If running a front rack on Kevin, please keep in mind that the fork is designed to carry a max weight of 6kg (3kg/ blade) - a bit of jiggery is required when installing a rack - you will need a bracket that allows that rack to attach to both the front and rear mount on the fork crown to ensure the rack is securely in place.|
|Is there much weight difference between the Steel and Titanium Kevin?||The weight varies according to frame size etc. Generally the steel frame weights around 30% less than the titanium frame of the same size.|
