Moulton XTB Drop bar

Regular price £3,900.00

Tax included.

The Moulton XTB brings full-suspension comfort to all kinds of terrain - paths, trails, tracks and gravel roads. Proven and durable Moulton suspension helps to stick your tyres to the ground for efficiency and safety, as well as absorbing shocks from bumps and dips in the trail. Easily adjusted to suit most riders, the Moulton XTB packs down quickly for hassle-free transport to the trailhead by car, bus, train or plane.

Cross-terrain features include increased tyre clearances, adjustable bottom bracket height and custom 1 x 11 drivetrain. These are in addition to the well-proven Moulton characteristics – stiff multi-tube X-frame, front and rear suspension, adjustability to suit most riders and front and rear racks for carrying luggage. This combination of features makes the XTB the perfect choice for bikepacking.

The Moulton XTB is a contemporary interpretation of Alex Moulton's AM-ATB, a pivotal design acknowledged as the world's first full suspension mountain bike to enter series production. This reimagining resulted in the new Moulton XTB being 3kg/7lb lighter than the production AM-ATB, an impressive weight saving. Additionally, the Moulton XTB offers both drop and flat handlebar variants and a wider gear range than the original triple-chainring AM-ATB, making it truly the perfect match for the gravel trail. Every XTB is hand-built in England by highly skilled craftsmen.
