We believe in you, the rider. You know why you ride, how you ride and the ride you want. You are the best person to design your bespoke custom bike. Our mission is to empower you to direct the design of your bike – tuning it to your specific needs. The end product is uniquely precision crafted by the rider, for the rider.
Everyone at Bastion is driven by a passion for quality and the pursuit of excellence. We want to share the joy of embracing the latest technology and engineering the world’s finest bikes with you, the rider. We invite those who share our passion to join us, and, through our unique design process, discover the satisfaction of designing your own personal dream bike.
Our process combines advanced custom engineering, technology, material and craft, to achieve the ultimate in uncompromising performance.
MADE BY MACHINE. CRAFTED BY HAND.
Our lugs are formed out of aerospace grade Titanium alloy powder. A specialised laser then fuses the powder to your exact specifications in a hermetically sealed, inert gas environment. The result is mechanical properties that rival those of forged parts.
Our tube sections are wound layer by layer in carbon fibre over a mandrel in a computer controlled process called filament winding. This enables precise fibre orientation, continuous fibre paths, and higher fibre to resin ratios, giving you ultimate control of the performance characteristics of your bike.
THE RIDER’S HOLY GRAIL.
COMFORT AND PERFORMANCE IN THE SAME FRAME.
By combining Titanium and Carbon Fibre, Bastion bike frame technology gives you the best of both worlds, to create the best frame in the world. Our engineers have fine-tuned the ideal combination of Titanium and Carbon Fibre to yield a frame with the optimum balance of performance and mass.
It’s the rider’s holy grail – a frame that blends the torsional stiffness and performance of a Carbon Fibre frame with the ride comfort of a Titanium frame.
The frame’s tube sections, which are the areas of highest deflection, use Carbon Fibre because of its renowned damping properties. However, in areas such as the bottom bracket, carbon fibre creates an overly stiff joint that compromises ride comfort.
Here we use Titanium. Only the finest grade Ti6Al4V Titanium Alloy is used and the latest 3D printing technology allows us to form it into previously impossible shapes to create Bastion’s breakthrough frame design. We utilise the lower stiffness of Titanium to better isolate the high frequency vibrations of rough roads, whilst maximising torsional stiffness through asymmetric structures, transforming both ride and performance.
