2018 Wabi Thunder Elite

The Wabi Thunder Elite is the ultimate adventure single-speed. The Thunder Elite is built from an entirely new Reynolds 725 frame design, and has received high marks from cyclocross racers. The Elite model includes the SRAM Force 1 carbon fiber crankset, TRP CX8.4 v-brakes, and a White Industries ENO freewheel.

 

The Wabi Thunder Elite features a hand-built, TIG-welded, Reynolds 725 frame, along with a premium component group. All bearings are sealed—a low-maintenance relationship is guaranteed. Just keep air in the tires and a little lube on the chain. And ride!

Every bike is carefully assembled-to-order and packed at Wabi Cycles in Tulsa, Oklahoma. 

      • Reynolds 725 double-butted, heat-treated tubing, TIG-welded joints
      • Tough, lightweight, responsive wheels

          Steel

          We use Reynolds 725 and Columbus Spirit. These higher quality grades of steel allows us to use less of it, so you get a lighter, more responsive frame.

          E.D Coating

          Our steel frames are E.D. coated to act as a rust preventative and a primer. This high-performance rust inhibitor is applied inside the frame and out.

          design

          Wabi frames are road-designed with upright angles, and short wheelbases, which creates comfort, efficiency, and predictable handling. Our road frame design gives you an agile and fast ride.

          Details

          We love the detail of our frames. You'll find cast-brazed dropouts, machined head tubes, brazed seatpost collars, bottle cage eyelets, and brazed forks.

          Light, Responsive, Sturdy

          I've had mine for about two weeks. It's noticeably lighter than my previous steel-framed single-speed. In fact, it's on par with my aluminum/carbon 1x11 Ultegra bike. The low 42/19 gearing is great for the hilly San Francisco topology as well as the occasional gravel-grind. The wheel axles require a hex wrench for removal, eliminating the need to carry around a big heavy crescent. The frame geometry favors a more upright riding posture. This has been perfect for commuting. After ordering, I was contacted by one of their techs (Jeremy.) He confirmed component and paint options with me and even re-routed the brake housing to my specifications. Overall, very satisfied with my first Wabi.
