Titanium bicycle manufacturer Qoroz has teamed with touring specialist MSG to produce a highly durable touring bike.
Due to retail for £3,895, the bike features the Qoroz ‘SS Couplers’, which mean the rider can disassemble the bike for secure and convenient transportation.
MSG’s Alistair Scadding, who helped design the bike, told BikeBiz: “The collaboration has brought about the Expedition Won. The bike is hub-geared and has a stable geometry designed primarily for comfort, and to carry plenty. Titanium is an ideal material for a tourer because of its properties. Round the world cyclist James Bowthorpe owns one of these bikes already, so they must be good.”
The build has plenty of luxuries too, including a stylish Brooks saddle, sharp and long-wearing Magura brakes and Pinhead Skewers for wheel security. The build features plenty of touring extras as standard too, such as a Pletscher kickstand, SKS Black mudguards and Tubus cargo racks front and rear.
Qoroz also debuted a titanium disassembly bike at the Cycle Show, for which the build can be customised from the frameset upwards. The Freedom Won utilises the SS Couplers and can be shrunk down to the size of its 20-inch carbon wheels. The geometry is notably ‘roadie’ and that’s because Qoroz has more or less matched the positioning of the saddle, pedals and handlebars to that of its Road Won model.
The compact frame has been engineered to be super stiff and when combined with any of the SRAM, Shimano or Campagnolo builds available, it’s capable of putting in the miles.
