No.22 Reactor – ROAD RACE
The Reactor is the most race-oriented road frame in the No. 22 lineup. The focus is on stiffness, responsive handling and light weight. The Reactor is the perfect titanium stage race tool.
When developing the Reactor, the goal was to increase the drive train stiffness of the Great Divide road bike. The Reactor features an oversized down tube and chain stays, both of which are among the largest offered on a titanium frame. The Reactor has an oversized head tube and size-specific butting and tubing in combination with chain stays that are are 25.4mm in diameter (ovalised to 30mm at the bottom bracket); the result is a bike that responds crisply and immediately to hard efforts.
“There are bikes that make you feel fast, bikes that make you look cool, and bikes that imbue a sense of strength, power and invincibility. Every so often, a bike comes along that carries all of these traits and leaves its rider speechless. No. 22's Reactor is one of these and one of the challenges when reviewing it is to know where to begin." - RIDE Cycling Review issue #72.
