Stanton launch new Switchpath Ti gravel bike

Fancy some grins with your gravel?

This is a big moment for us at Stanton Bikes, the launch of our first bike that’s not a mountain bike - the Switchpath Ti gravel bike. So have we gone to the dark side? Traded our trails for tarmac and our baggies for lycra?

Nope. The way we see it, all this gravel/adventure bike hype is just another way of folks getting off the tarmac and going where they like, how they like - and that’s definitely our territory. You can sleep easy and know we’ve drawn a line in the gravel and come down on the side of the mountain bike fraternity. You don’t need to compromise on the fun and you can keep your shorts as loose as your riding. The Switchpath Ti is a gravel machine from the mountains, not the road.

The Switchpath Ti has all the trademark playfulness that our frames are famed for. We kept the angles on the slack side and room for tyres that’ll cope when you point it down the rough stuff. We haven’t conformed to the standard industry sizing either. The seat tube is shorter than average for extra standover height, giving you more room to move the bike underneath you. Keeping the top tube out of the way so you can be aggressive without the risk of crotch meeting crossbar.

Of course, being triple-butted, aerospace-grade titanium, it’s no heavyweight. Our long experience of working with Ti means we know it’s the perfect material for a responsive, supple and strong bike that you’ll want to spend all day on. It’s ‘bike for life’ longevity is also perfectly suited to the Switchpath’s go anywhere capabilities. We like to do things a bit differently so have also developed a unique Ti fork option to compliment the frame. Titanium’s trail-buzz taming properties do a better job than carbon of absorbing vibrations and reducing fatigue on your hands. They also look insanely bad-ass.

There’s all the usual build-it-how-you-want-it Stanton goodness here. You can go flared-bar superlight dreambuild or fit your flat bars and your 4-pot brakes and go PB hunting on your local trails. And, because all our frames are hand-finished at our Derbyshire factory, you can choose how your Switchpath looks and create something unique to you. From elegant blasted, polished or anodised decals to colorful Cerakote ceramic paints.

With the Switchpath Ti we’ve stuck to our principles and created the kind of bike we want to ride. One that fits with our heritage, our positive attitude and our playful philosophy. As usual we’ve gone our own way and on a Switchpath Ti you can go yours.
