Product Description
Details

The lightweight performance and comfort of titanium at a more approachable price.

‘FRAME 10/10. The Valkyrie’s cold-worked and seamless titanium tubing is welded to Airborne’s usual high standards with the characteristic small scalloped joints complementing the understated lustre of the unpainted tubes. Although titanium has to be welded in short runs, the welds exhibit a seamless testament to the torch-holder’s prowess. Subtle black and white decals on the matt gray background reflect Airborne’s Second World War marketing. But there’s no Dad’s Army sepia shots to take here. The deep section down tube and S-bend chainstays are bang up-to-date.

HANDLING. The Airborne rides predictably comfortably, thanks to the stiff, oversize tubes and the inherent ‘rubbery’ feel of titanium. Bumps don’t manage to shock the spine like on all-alloy frames and poor road surfaces are magically softened.’
