Esker Cycles is doing things a little differently, and we are all about it!. As opposed to a huge marketing campaign, and signing up tons of dealers, they are strategically working with a select few shops that will have dedicated demo bikes on the floor at ll times. This is a bike that needs to be ridden. We expect our demo bikes in May, and would love to get you on one. We are even working on a plan to allow customers to sign a bike and some gear out for a weekend excursion (more info to follow)
Every Esker product is built-to-order. We custom configure our framesets and complete bikes per the customer’s request. Alongside our industry-leading performance, we set ourselves apart by building each bike to customer spec with our online configurator, and even our framesets are configured to each customer’s needs, based on our available options.
Esker is a fusion of the rider owned dedication of passionate mountain bikers, the cumulative experience of industry veterans, and the desire to challenge traditional methods in order to make the best product possible available to anyone and everyone that wants to get out and ride.
Every aspect of Esker is centered on the belief that the rider is the most important part of the process. From the people that built the company, to the design and build of our bikes, to our emphasis on you—rider owned and rider centered is who we are.
ENJOY THE RIDE
Esker is more than just a bike company. We are a group of riders and like-minded individuals that aim to think differently and encourage a broader, more inclusive cycling community. We exist to influence the future of cycling in a positive manner—not just in the bikes that we ride, but in the way that we think about our sport and our community. We intend to inspire and encourage anyone with the desire to climb onto a bike and enjoy the ride.
Elkat (Complete Bike Start st $4,000)
Elkat was born from the belief that a mountain bike could be created to deliver a more enjoyable experience throughout the entire ride. Designed and built in the pursuit of performance and capability across the board, the modern design of Elkat's geometry and Orion suspension platform will allow you to enjoy the climbs in a whole new way and get you even more excited to drop the saddle and confidently rip down the other side.
150mm frame travel with 150-160mm fork
27.5" wheels up to 2.6" wide
Boost 148mm hub spacing
Orion suspension design
With Dave Weagle’s patented Orion suspension platform, and Esker’s "Slack&Steep" geometry, tied together with a striking aesthetic design, the carbon fiber Elkat chassis has it all built in. State of the art geometry and Orion kinematics deliver a balanced ride that challenges you to confidently go up, down, and sideways. Responsive small bump compliance, quick cornering, and stability at speed make for a versatile bike that can be built to suit the needs of any rider, on any terrain.
Hayduke (Complete Bike Start st $2,000)
Hayduke started with a vision for the perfect hardtail. Designed around modern frame geometry, a versatile dropout system, and custom drawn tubing, Hayduke is a capable mountain bike built to be used as a single-speed, a singletrack machine, or a bikepacking rig. Since its creation, the story of this beloved hardtail has been one of local singletrack rides, stargazing overnighters, and worldwide exploration.
With the next generation, we've updated the geometry for a more playful and responsive character out on the trail, crafted up a lighter and stronger proprietary tubing design, and added a plethora of braze-ons to attach anything that you can dream up—all while staying true to the character of the bike to keep the soul of the Hayduke.
Hayduke's steel frame uses a custom drawn externally tapered, seamless, quadruple butted, heat treated 4130 cromoly tubeset that is specific to each frame size—making for a better quality frame while reducing weight and cost for the rider.
The versatile Portage dropout system was designed for riders to easily switch drivetrain types, hub widths, wheel sizes, chainstay lengths, and accept racks. Set it up how you like, and hit the trail.
