With over 40 years of frame building experience, Moots Cycles understands how to handcraft a frame that is not only beautiful, light and durable, but also perfectly tailored to suit the riding style and size of its owner.
Based in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, in the heart of the Rockies, the brand’s headquarters are ideally located to access the country roads, unspoilt singletrack and miles of gravel trails that act as the brand’s testing grounds. With unrivalled cumulative experience of working with titanium and a host of cycling mad employees keen to sample and incrementally improve every design, it’s no wonder that Moots’ handmade, customisable frames are coveted the world over.
Always at the forefront of the industry, Moots was the first to develop a soft tail suspension with the YBB, brought out a Mooto X YBB bike in 1999, well before 29ers became popular, and was one of the first frame builders to adopt 3D printing. Whether you prefer adventuring or racing, riding on asphalt, gravel or singletrack, they have a frame to forever alter your perception of ride quality.
Vamoots RCS Disc Frame And Fork - Di2
RCS stands for Routt County Special, as the Vamoots RCS flat mount disc brake compatible road frame is built to cope with changeable surfaces, like those found near its Colorado HQ or in the UK! A model-specific fork accommodates 32mm tyres that will easily bounce over obstacles. Meanwhile, the frame boasts 3D printed dropouts, made to integrate with the brand’s seatstays and chainstays for superior handling, and is constructed from strong, light, double-butted titanium tubeset for longevity and speed.Shop Vamoots RCS DISC FRAME AND FORK
Routt RSL Disc Frame And Fork - Di2
Moots Cycles has used its extensive gravel expertise to ensure the Routt RSL can cope with anything. This soft tail frame, with YBB micro-suspension, will absorb small shocks to give a smooth ride – especially since it accommodates tyres up to 45mm. The brand is known for its handmade, durable yet lightweight double-butted titanium tubing, and here a large-diameter version is combined with a carbon fork to give the confident handling needed for racing, alongside the comfort required to ride all day.Shop Routt RSL Disc Frame and Fork
Womble Disc Frame – Mechanical
Moots Cycles’ most adventurous frame, the Womble, is perfect for those wishing to tackle singletrack or enjoy bikepacking. A hardtail 29er, it offers clearance for a hefty 2.6in tyre and is built from the largest diameter double-butted titanium tubing the brand makes. This stiff, 1x specific frame is strong enough to take whatever punishment you throw at it, and thanks to its modern geometry, will offers outstanding handling and a fun ride when paired with a 140mm fork. It’s every backcountry explorer’s dream frame.Shop Womble Disc Frame
About Moots Cycles
Moots Cycles has always innovated, creating the industry’s first soft-tail design in 1987 before going on to define the custom titanium market in the 1990s. Never afraid to try something new, Moots debuted its first 29er in 1999, almost a decade before they became the norm on the trails.
Since then, the brand has debuted several Super Light models made from thinner tubing, revamped its road line with the introduction of the race-ready Vamoots RSL, brought out an MTB RSL and a specialist enduro/XC bike, the Psycho X RSL, and embraced the gravel trend with its Routt range.
Most recently, Moots Cycles has explored its wild side with the Womble MTB and the Baxter, named after the brand’s own shop dog, and created a multi-surface road bike, the Vamoots RCS, that embraces a modern tendency to roam beyond the tarmac.
Based in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, the Moots Cycles team of engineer artisans continues to handmake all its frames in-house and has developed a worldwide reputation for its quality titanium frames. The business tries to operate sustainably and was awarded a Gold Certificate for Corporate Stewardship Efforts by the city of Steamboat Springs in recognition of this work.
Titanium is Moots Cycles’ material of choice because it’s light, strong and offers a smooth ride over bumps and potholes, making it the ideal material for bicycles intended for adventure, endurance or mixed terrain riding.
Moots Cycles exclusively uses US-made Moots Pi Tech 3/2.5 titanium tubing, cut to different thicknesses and with different diameters to suit different frames. The idea is to offer each and every customer the best ride imaginable, irrespective of their size and where or how they like to ride.
Over 30 years’ experience of hand crafting this metal means the brand understands the properties of titanium like nobody else and knows how to create the perfect design and build to optimise your experience. It also has the right connections to command the best possible raw materials as a foundation for its work.
However, producing outstanding frames isn’t enough for the Moots Cycles teams – as fanatic cyclists, they’re always testing their own products and looking to fine tune their designs for every style of bike. They want each frame to be one that you’d happily ride on for the rest of your life.
