OLSEN RAM

Price: £2,700.00 (frame with Pinion C1.12 gearbox and Gates drivetrain)

From: Olsen Bicycles, olsenbicycles.com

Olsen Bicycles is a brand new name on the mountain biking scene. Named after its Kiwi founder, Steve Olsen, the brand was formed on the idea of producing the ultimate weatherproof mountain bike for British riding conditions. Very early on, Olsen recognised that a belt drive setup coupled to a sealed internal gearbox would be the ideal maintenance-free system for such an all-weather machine. More importantly, without a flimsy derailleur hanging off the back, there’d be zero chance of getting a zombie finger jammed in the drivetrain during a hasty getaway.

Olsen’s original design utilised a Pinion gearbox and a frame built from 4130 cromoly – a material that was UK-friendly from both a manufacturing and a consumer perspective. After coming to the realisation that the final steel frame weight would, however, be too high (at least 2.5kg without the gearbox), Olsen made the decision to pursue local carbon fibre production to deliver a much lighter, and ultimately tougher frame. Earlier this year, Olsen went on Kickstarter to help offcially launch the production frame.
