THE NEW Vassago Optimus Ti 100% Made in the USA -
The founders of Vassago had a vision to provide a no-compromise, made in the USA steel frame that would rival or surpass many custom frames, and that vision is finally being realized!
While Vassago's first passion is steel, there is no denying the allure and almost magical qualities offered by a titanium frame; Super light with a ride compliance like no other material can offer. The NEW Optimus has been completely redesigned and made in the USA by some of the finest builders in the industry. The NEW Optimus Ti boasts sliding dropouts that allow the use of multiple rear axle options, curved downtube, Vassago Size specific titanium tubing, 44mm headtube for straight or tapered forks, an awesome brushed finish, and legendary WetCat handling.
When merging the legendary ride quality of fine titanium, the balanced handling of WetCat geometry and artisan-quality welds, the result is a ti 29er that is truly worthy of the name Optimus Ti.
