Kingdom Bike Vendetta

PRESS RELEASE: Kingdom Bike

Titanium mountain bikes are what Kingdom Bike has produced for the past 10 years - nothing else. Thats a solid 10 years of experience designing hardcore mountain bikes around one single medium - Titanium.

We've learned a few tricks along the way which directly equates to cost savings. We're proud to be sharing those tricks with you. Our Vendetta X2 Hardtail was our initial foray into this concept, we're doing it again - but now its on our full suspension platform. The Vendetta XFS is the logical progression for our suspension platform and range of bikes. It’s been secretly under development for the last year and a half and it’s now a design we’re happy to launch to the world.

The Vendetta XFS combines the best features from our race proven Hex and Switch frames and incorporates them with the look, geometry and clean lines of the Vendetta X2.

Kingdom Bike Vendetta
We've got a new mantra at Kingdom Bike: We only make Vendettas

The Vendetta XFS has 143mm of travel with a suspension platform that mirrors the Hex, dual linkage fabricated from high-quality 7075 alloy CNC links.

The rear triangle features our signature CNC titanium yoke and symmetrical tubing system from the Switch, but that’s lighter with improved tyre clearance and extra stiffness.

Features

• Handmade from certified aerospace grade Ti-3AL-2.5V
• Frame: 3.15kgs - Complete bike: 12.9kgs
• Recommended fork: 140-150mm
• Rear travel: 143mm (shock: 200mm x 57mm)
• Max rear tyre: 27.5x2.6 (some brands 2.8 tyres will fit)
• Slippery gold coated pivot bolts and titanium shock hardware
• 31.6 Seatpost: routing for stealth dropper
• Gear and brake routing - external alloy bolt-on guides
• Straight head tube S.H.I.S. 44 - 44
• Threaded bottom bracket: 73mm
• 1x10, 1x11 or 1x12
• Rear 148x12
• Water bottle mounts
• Replaceable 7075 alloy dropouts
• Limited lifetime warranty
• Crash/repair warranty

Kingdom Bike Vendetta
The Vendetta XFS has new features like our CNC seat stay shock mounting system, bolt on alloy cable guides and we've added water bottle mounts.

Kingdom Bike Vendetta
Like its hardtail cousin the Vendetta X2, we have removed some of the expensive parts like the tapered head tube and rear post mount brakes so we can offer this frame at an amazing price.

 Spent a few days in Tenerife with Kingdom Bike a couple of weeks ago along with Lavatrax who have a fleet of Kingdom bikes for hire. We had the chance to ride a Hex, Switch & the new Vendetta XFS. I own a Hex & absolutely love it but the Vendetta XFS with the cane creek Coil Shock & Helm Coil fork combo was outstanding. Highly recommend one if you’re shopping for a Ti full suss, their customer service is second to none as well. Seriously, what other bike manufacturers contact you to see if you want new bearings sending out, for free!!!

 Read the article about the Vendetta X2 on the brand’s website and you will understand how they have managed to produce a frame in a more cost effective way so that more people can try these awesome bikes!? You also get for free the best customer service!

 One of their captions says "we have removed some of the expensive parts like the tapered head tube and rear post mount brakes so we can offer this frame at an amazing price." We'd be interested to hear more on this...
  • 34 1
 @brianpark: Hi Brian - our 44mm Ti headtubes are regular stock straight tubing versus a tapered 44/56 headtube which a 100% CNCed affair. The dropouts have also been replaced with a Breezer style versus our custom CNCed dropouts..all cable routing is now external (except the dropper, its still stealth).

The rest of the cost savings is done through a refinement of our mfg process that we've been working on with this frame design that has been in development since our Hex and Switch frames have been in play.

We really felt it important to bring to market a viable Titanium full suspension trail bike that is durable yet affordable - so we passed those savings onto our customers.
  • 2 0
 Is the difference of not having a tapered headtube actually noticeable on titanium frames? Is it just an issue of compatibility with some modern forks then?
  • 6 0
 @Paluzas: 44/44 = EC lower HS cup vs. 44/56 = IC lower typically. Bottom-line: it will run the forks you want.

 @Richt2000 Where are those savings and what are they compared to? 2k€ for frame only, another 300€ for a 'starter' shock or drop a cool 1k€ and get a fork & shock.

 "What are those tricks? Did I miss this in the release?"

The trick is sourcing the frame in China and selling it for a big markup. I had a look at the cross frame, looks fine until you read the price is for the frame only. For that price I get a well spec'ed complete bike with Ti frame from Planet X.
  • 3 0
 @Paluzas: it’s just aesthetics...you can still have tapered forks of course. Rather than using a big block of Ti to make that tapered tube, you use a standard easy and quick tube.
  • 1 1
 @Paluzas: no possibility of angled headset is the only real downside. Zero stack 1 1/8 cups and external 1 1/2 cups so you can fit any fork you want.
  • 11 0
 @KingdomBike:

External routing is way better - can’t stand having to bleed brakes every time I build a bike.

Non post mount is not an issue.

Straight head tube is only an issue if you want to slacken the HA and this bike is nice and slack so no issue here.

Cost savings well made I would say...

 “We've learned a few tricks along the way which directly equates to cost savings. We're proud to be sharing those tricks with you”

The trick is to not weld them properly in an oxygen free atmosphere and have contaminated welds that will fail. See how badly discolored the welds are. Ouch!

flag rich-2000 (Mar 3, 2018 at 2:14) (Below Threshold)
 @iRiderPB:

Yea even if those welds are structually sound, the discolouring is not very asthetic. This is probably the worst thing about the frame. My stanton Ti welds are the same colour as the tubing. Its obvious quality is compromised with the welding...
  • 2 2
 @ehtikhet: Yeah, because they have brushed the frame after welding. That discoloration still remains shows that it is deep in the metal. If the weld looks like that before brushing it might be acceptable, but here we will never know.
I think this is one thing to cut the costs. However, other companies do offer fairly affordable ti frames that don't have this discoloration, so it can be done even on a budget.

 @Paluzas: The difference is the tapered headtube is CNCed the 44mm headtube is stock tubing, as stated. The one is obviously more expensive to produce than the other. It will still take 'modern' forks.
  • 9 1
 @m1dg3t: Given that most titanium hardtail frames cost more than €2000, this is pretty impressive. Stanton is selling its hardtail frames for over €2000, Kona's Honzo frame costs about the same, and BTR's steel AM frame costs almost €2700(!). That titanium is expensive will come as no surprise to anyone.

Kingdom are releasing their cheaper Vendetta hardtail for €1000, which is under half the price of their competitors. Pretty impressive if you ask me.
  • 2 0
 @harriieee: and if you were to throw a leg over any of their bikes you would understand how much more impressive they are...also, the "dirty" welds actually look much nicer in reality than on photos...and they can be brushed with a pad and elbow grease if you prefer. I thought about doing it on my Vendetta when i got it but then i quite like the welds now.

I would have a NP one if so as I can hold of it cheaper than the Works gear.

Often people write the word angle in headset and it corresponds to the angular contact bearings.

 @Racer951: The Superstar Slackerizer T8 headsets are for tapered steerers in a straight 44mm headtube, aren't they? Of course the steerer tube needs to be long enough as both headset cups are external. With no angle adjust, it is most common to have a zero stack upper headset cup. But if you were already riding with spacers underneath the stem you'll probably be fine. And/or maybe with the DMR Defy stem, which is relatively low.

 @kingdomBike are your frames purged with argon gas during welding? Also, is your TIG welder setup to flow argon over the joint during welding? I used to work for a custom Ti manufacturer in Seattle. The welder explained that the argon is so no oxygen enters the weld when the Ti is molten. And also that any coloring in the weld especially blue indicates oxygen absorption. The more oxygen that gets in the more brittle the weld. I love the idea of a Ti Full suss, but I'm seeing a lot of colorful welds on your website. How are the frames holding up?

hi, I'm the US rep for Kingdom. Glad to answer your question. We've not had any issues with the welds. Kingdom has been in business for 10 years always with a lifetime warranty on all our frames. If there was an issue with our welds, we'd be out of business.

I am still skeptical about the discoloration. Could you post pictures of how the welds look before brushing?
As mentioned by others before, slightly discolored welds are acceptable (www.weld.com/media/blog/images/Mr%20TIG%20Articles/Titanium_Weld_Color_Quality_Inspection_Chart_.jpg), but this counts for the original weld, not the brushed ones.

 @Silocycle: read the BikeRadar review of the Hex and you will understand. Since then the bikes have been getting slacker and longer and even better. Both Hex LS and this XFS ride pretty much the same. I couldn’t notice any noticeable difference. It’s awesome

 According to their website, HQ is in Denmark with design based in Tasmania and manufacture in China. I’m curious about the origin of the tubing.

 @PNdubRider: pretty much the same origin as most ti or other bike tubing for that matter, seeing as most bikes are made in Taiwan / china.
