Named after the famed Horse Cycles Workshop Cat Charles, the "HELL CAT" MTB is a fully capable plus size shred machine. The slacked head tube and long top tube allow it to climb steep inclines with ease and drop into the most challenging descents. The tight hardtail rear end gives great power transfer and stability while the plus size tire provides a plush suspension and that "floating feeling" when flowing down trails. The Hell Cat lets it all hang out, allowing you to ride more challenging terrain, go bigger, steeper, and faster; boosting confidence and giving you ultimate control.
We've found a 130-150 travel front fork and 2.8" tires are the perfect set up for the all mountain rider.
Incorporating the latest standards including Boost front 110x15mm thru axle and boost rear, 148x12mm thru, T47 oversized BB, Syntace dropouts, internally routed dropper and room for 3" tires. The Hell cat also comes standard with a custom turned tapered head tube as well as a bent seat tube allowing a tucked rear end.
This Hell Cat features a custom bent down tube for more clearance and front travel as well as triple internal cable routing. Custom anodized white and Paul Components. Sram Eagle 1x12, 10-50 tooth rear cassette, Sram rsc Hydro brakes, Fox dropper and Fox 34 130mm front fork.
Each bike comes standard with Charles the Hell Cat logo on the head tube and seat tube, painted in house by Ben Falcon at Horse Cycles Paint. Check out the product page for more details! HELL CAT
I'll be taking this bike out with me to Bozeman Montana for Builder Camp. Five days of shredding with some of the best builders around, including Sklar bikes our host, Curtis Inglis from Retrotec, Carl Strong, Arron Stinner, Squid bikes, and Breadwinner to name a few. It will be my first time riding with John Watson since he lived in Brooklyn over ten years ago. Also coming are Alec White from White Industries and Paul from Paul Components.
CHARLES THE BEAST!
