2017 Bombtrack Needle Medium Green / Black
The Bombtrack Needle is all about balance. In Crit racing you need a bike that has enough stiffness to ensure it reacts to your every input, but with enough ‘give’ to absorb the rougher surfaces of a typical Crit circuit. It’s for this reason that the Needle uses steel, rather than alloy or carbon fiber for its frame. Every detail of this bike has been considered and optimised thanks to input from the guys racing it week in, week out. Features like a shorter seat tube, to allow the seat post a little more flex, keeping you firmly planted in the saddle, or the optimised trail length for greater stability at high speeds. The components and finishing kit on the Needle are all race ready, from the SRAM Omnium crankset to the Bombtrack developed Drome wheels. All this means the Needle is ready to head straight for the nearest Crit race and mix things up in more ways than one. This bike is an amazing choice for street or track riding with use by the WIT Industries Team, who race in Redhook Crit and the NL Crit Series, formerly the Vast Verzet Bokaal.
