Titus Branching Out Into Cyclocross Frames

Published May 12, 2008

TEMPE, AZ (BRAIN)—Titus Cycles has launched a brand new line of TRX cyclocross frames.

The new line features three different models and is intended to establish Titus solidly in the high-growth cyclocross segment. “We’ve been watching the whole cross scene gain momentum over the past few years and felt it was the right time for us to jump in with both feet," said Pat Hus, chief executive officer of Titus.

Titus, which is historically known for its extensive work with titanium and carbon, breaks new ground with its all new TRX Steel Exogrid frame. The frame pairs True Temper’s OX Platinum steel tubing with its patented Exogrid technology.

“Exogrid allows our engineers the ability to combine the durability of titanium and steel with significant weight savings, stiffness and design flexibility,” said Jeff Titone, marketing director for Titus. “The result is a frame that has great performance, is extremely tough and incredibly light."

All three new models will be hand-built in Titus' Tempe facility and will be available as either a frame or frame and fork. The frames will be offered in five standard sizes as well as custom with first availability scheduled for August. Frames prices begin at $1,895 for the steel Exogrid frame.
