Skeiron - Highly Evolved

Award   GOLD WINNER 2017
Category   Racing Bikes
Company   Van Nicholas

The frame is optimised for rigidity at the four key stress points by incorporating a press-fit bottom bracket, ovalised down tube and hydroformed, tapered chain stays, tapered head and top tubes, and 12mm thru-axles for the wheels. The front fork is designed to accommodate the front brake hose and blend seamlessly with the frame. Flat-mounts for the disc-brakes are developed to provide aerodynamic advantages by hiding the mounting bolts and tucking the brake callipers closer to the frame; the internal cables and hose can be easily replaced through the well-thought out cap underneath the bottom bracket. We offer 1x11 or 2x11 for mechanic shifting or the latest Di2 electronic shifting (2x11).

Outstanding in the following evaluation criteria

  • Sustainability
  • Price-performance ratio
  • Weight/ pack size

Jury Statement

The market for titanium road bikes may be small, but the Skeiron particularly impressed us with its classic retro design and its unique integration of cables in the cockpit and frame. The price is also extremely attractive for a titanium bike with disc brakes.
