What we say: We love tech street as much as we love pump track riding and this frame for us is one of the best available frames, especially if you like to mix flatland and street. You'll have nice clearance for whiplashes and great geometry for hang fiving around town.
What they say: The original AscenD 19’’ frame design is the foundation design of our AscenD line of frames. A classic flatland size for a frame combining maximum functionality and aesthetics, a frame that gives both space and a beautiful line to the bike. We also found the best durability / weight ratio. Every rider on the team has his own way to ride, progress and explore new motion territories but all of them share the need for resistance and momentum.
We’ve been riding the AscenD 19’’ since its creation in 2009 : already years of fun and progression on our bikes. The goal was to make a frame inspired by the riding we wanted to learn—not the trends of the market, and make this frame a classic design that would stand the test of time. More and more riders of all ages and riding styles take notice and are expecting more size options of AscenD frames to match their needs.
This year we not only wanted to continue with our line based around that unique and recognised Heresy design, but to improve it with a reinforced design and integrated chain tensioners. Also, we are introducing a new frame, the AscenD X, which is a 19.5″ top tube frame combining the classic AscenD 19.5″ geometry to the 20″ look. The frame at the crossroads of both styles.
