PRESS RELEASE: Pässilä Bicycles
Töyrä is Pässilä Bicycles' take on how the dirt jump and slopestyle mountain bike frame should look and feel. We designed and developed this frame in close co-operation with Samuli Hellberg. Samuli is a Jack of all trades of the cycling scene in Finland. He is known for riding almost every type of bicycle that exists including dirt jump bikes, for his cycling focused samulione YouTube channel, racing in the hardtail category of the Finnish national enduro cup aboard Pässilä Bicycles' Rämäkkä titanium enduro hardtail, spreading great vibe in the cycling contests and for his very cool attitude towards, well, everything and everyone. Samuli needed a frame for dirt jumping (and maybe for slopestyle too in the future, who knows) and we wanted to develop one.

Töyrä frame is produced using our material of choice, Ti Al3-2.5V titanium alloy, and is suitable for riders 150 cm (4 ft. 11 in.) or taller. The frame can be customized for the riders needs in our web store when you order your frame. You can choose the desired reach of the frame, fork length from 80 mm to 100 mm travel, the head tube angle, seat tube length and have it with or without the ISCG-05 tabs. If you like, you can finalize your frame with your own custom text on the top tube. If you want exactly the same geometry as Samuli has, just go with the default options. Each frame is built to order and the delivery time of the frame is about 8 weeks.

Töyrä was designed to be the dream tool of every dirt jump and slopestyle rider. We focused especially on handling, maneuverability and strength. The titanium material absorbs the rough stuff with ease and the frame is able to handle hard hits without a flinch. Töyrä comes without the weight penalty of the more traditional DJ bike materials, weighing only 1750 grams (3.86 lbs).
