Foundry is known for its no-frills, carbon fiber race bikes, but now it is expanding into a material more closely aligned with its name: titanium. The new Overland model is an all-road adventure bike squarely aimed at the growing gravel and ultracross market.
Built with hydraulic disc brakes and clearance for 41c tires, the Overland is meant to be a versatile platform for explorations both on a race course and in the backcountry. The titanium frame is paired with a Whisky No. 9 carbon fork and employs thru-axles at both ends for extra stiffness and wheel security. Whisky says building bikes from titanium closely adheres to its philosophy of making products that can be ridden hard and last a lifetime.
This isn’t a grocery-getter though. The lack of rack mounts keep things streamlined while the top tube cable routing uses full-length housing for better performance in the muck and comfortable shouldering on the race course. There are a set of fender eyelets on the frame and the Whisky fork for wet-weather comfort.
The Overland will be available in limited quantities as a frameset ($2,495) or complete bike ($4,695). The frameset includes the fork, DT RWS front and rear axles, Cane Creek headset, and a seat collar. The complete build features a SRAM Force 22 Hydraulic drivetrain, DT Swiss R24 wheels, Zipp cockpit, and tires from Clement.
Correction: An earlier version of this post incorrectly stated that the Overland does not have fender eyelets. It does.Tweet Print
