Our long awaited Dart V2 is finally available to buy! Totally redesigned, we’ve taken everything that made the original Dart such a popular frame with track and street riders and improved it. Retaining the tried and true geometry that’s perfect for sliding through the city or a flying 200 on the track, we’ve build the V2 with custom drawn steel. The huge, oversized tubes keep the weight low but the frame stiffness incredibly high. Combine that with the gorgeous ride quality of steel and the 44mm headtube that makes the front end rigid and the steering precise, you’ve got a frame that can do everything from Sunday track best to daily beater. While the rugged steel construction means it will take a thrashing, it would be a crime to ruin the paint, designed especially for us by Californian designer Will Rei.
The Dart V2 is available frame only, and comes with a seat-tube shim for safe seatpost clamping, reducing the chance of damaging your frame by overtightening the clamp. The 550mm frame weighs in at 2.2kg. We recommend a Tange Technoglide Zero Headset, which fits perfectly in to the 44mm headtube and has an extremely low stack height. Columbus Tusk Straight Forks are a perfect match too, following the clean lines of the headtube and providing the perfect geometry, as well as complimenting the stiffness of the frame. Alpina Track forks are also an option for those looking for stable tracking on the boards of the velodrome or super sharp handling in the street.
