MAGIC CARPET RIDE


But Knolly only makes mountain bikes? What do they know about road / all-round bikes?  If you have had a chance to ride a Knolly you know that their ride quality second to none. This takes a lot of experience to get right and it's no surprise the Cache is like a magic carpet on dirt.

You could describe it as smoothie on gravel roads, forest trails and everything above and in-between. The custom drawn tubes have had  extensive work to optimise and refine the shape for one of the best feeling all-road bikes available today.
The elegantly designed stays that are offset from the rear axle is a neat tricky touch to add some compliance to the rear end. Extensively CNC'd parts give a perfect finish, stunning looks and rock solid feel when sprinting and putting the power down.

Tyre spacing to fit 650b x 2.10 or 700c x 45c tyres and the Knolly compliance tuned carbon fork offers more carrying capacity with hidden fender tabs.  Run any drivetrain

Your choice of Titanium or Steeel - Choose one, It's impossible to lose!

KNOLLY BIKES LIFETIME WARRANTY

Over the years we have realized that Knolly owners ride our products hard and often. This is great because that is exactly what we designed them for. Our goal from the beginning was to not only develop bikes that provide our loyal customers with an incredible riding experience, but to also provide solid support as well. Everyone here at Knolly is a rider so we take the engineering and manufacturing of our products very seriously, and we have partnered with one of the premier factories in the world to produce our bikes. We make some of the best product on the market and we are prepared to back that up by offering a Limited Lifetime Warranty* (to the original owner) on our frames along with an awesome crash replacement program.

What the frame warranty covers:
- Defects in materials and workmanship
- Bearings and fasteners for six months from time of purchase
- Rear shocks are covered by their respective manufacturer, typically for one year from the time of purchase


What the frame warranty does not cover:
- Normal wear and tear
- Damage to the finish of the frame from the application of frame protector coverings/sticker or     adhesive backed sheets
- Damage due to crashing and or abuse
- Damage from using non factory specified fasteners and bearings
- Damage from using non factory approved rear shocks
- Damage or failure due to poor, negligent or lack of maintenance
-  Damage due to improper installation of components
- Water damage to bearings, decals and finishes from high pressure washers and hoses
 - Dealer labour and costs for shipping warranty components to Knolly Bikes

What will void your frame warranty:
 - Modification of the frame in any way
 - Use of unapproved shock sizes for any chosen model

KNOLLY BIKES FRAME CRASH REPLACEMENT POLICY
Our crash replacement policy is designed to support customers with frame failures that are not covered under our warranty policy. This mainly includes failures that are not a result of defective materials or workmanship (i.e. crashing). It does not cover frames damaged due to installation and use of components that are inappropriate for a particular frame's intended purpose, such as: using an 8 inch DH fork on a trail bike, etc.

THE BOTTOM LINE
We stand behind our products, and they are designed to last a very long time. Regardless of the reason that you need our assistance, whether it’s a warranty situation or a crash replacement situation, our goal is to get you back on the trails as soon as humanly possible. We take pride in providing great service, since we know that’s an important part of keeping you in the Knolly family for as long as you’re able to ride a bike.

an insane amount of details have gone into the cache. the ti cache features 11 seperate cnc parts - 9 titanium and 2 in aluminium. all these minute details add up to the typical knolly ride quality

DETAILS

No details left out - The rear stays sit off-center of the rear axle to aid in compliance and the custom shaped chain stays angle the rear brake line smoothly and increase the weld surface area. With 11 custom CNC parts throughout and the striking CNC'd head tube. The Cache is built to last

CLEARANCE

Made for 700 x 45c or 650b x 2.10". Your choice of wheels and type of riding.  The custom Knolly carbon fork also has hidden fender tabs so you can load it up and head out on a multi day adventure

STEEL IS REAL

Available in the magic carpet riding steel with a special pre-paint anti rust coating throughout. Still taking advantage of the radically shaped tubes as the Ti version but at a lower price point.

RIDE QUALITY FIRST

Ride quality comes first - The Cache Ti and Steel feature a sublime ride - Each size has had their tubeset optimised to provide the right amount of compliance and stiffness depending on the size of the frame. This cannot be done with off the shelf tubesets - the Ti and Steel frames all have had custom tooling to make this happen - an expensive process - but you know you are getting some of the best riding bikes available. All the minute details add up to make this a bike that you will want to have for a long time.


"Having ridden loads of high end carbon bikes the Cache was refreshingly comfortable, it really takes the buzz out of crappy roads and putting down the power feels absolutely sublime."


tI OR STEEL



EVERLASTING TITANIUM

Timeless and extremely durable - The workmanship of the Cache Ti is second to none. Yep it's expensive, but we know you won't be changing this bike every season.


excellent price point and SUBLIME RIDE of STEEL

Available in 3 colourways and coated with an anti rust coating for carefree riding in any condition. Heavier than the titanium but once the ride quality is felt everything is just vanishes. Did you see the price? Amazing value with 7 sizes available for the true-to-size fit.

LIFETIME WARRANTY

No messing around here - Knolly stands behind all their bikes and the lifetime warranty really secures that. There is no doubt Knolly's are made to be ridden hard and being born on the shore means they need to be tough to take the abuse and aggressive riding they are built for.  A true test of the strength and durability is Knolly's Limited Lifetime Warranty. Knolly also offers an excellent crash replacement program as well. No wonder there is a huge following of loyal Knolly fans all over the world.


unlike other brands that are driven by marketing hype - There is no new model once a year, once a bike is ready it is released - no matter how long it takes. You know you are getting the best of the best, no compromise in quality or handling. Bikes made to be ridden hard and last a very long time.



VERSATILITY

700c x 45c

Whether you want to run "skinny" 700c x 28c tarmac focused tyres and smash out quick road miles, you can also size up to 45c for that nice balance of grip and comfort for terribly surfaced gravel roads.

27.5 x 2.1

With clearance of up to 2.10" on 650B wheels this turns the cache into a gravel mile machine. The comfort and grip of the wider and smaller tyres combined with the silky smooth ride quality of the Cache lets you get and ride all day.

Di2, Mechanical, 2x,1x

Shimano offers their cranks with a +3 option (the part number should have a "B" on the end like this: FC-M8000-B). The axle length and BB are the same as their standard cranks so the offset is worked into the chainring mount. This system will work as both a 1x and a 2x option on the Fugitive. NOTE: this set up requires one spacer between the BB and the frame on the drive side. Maximum size chainring is a 32t ring with this setup. The XTR, XT and SLX cranks in this configuration work on the Fugitive. The new Shimano XTR, XT and SLX 12 speed cranks come in a 56.5 chainline

STEEL OR TI

Yes Titanium is beautiful and is everlasting - not in your price budget? The Steel Cache will satisfies all your desires and lust for perfect buttery smooth ride quality. It features a pre-paint ED rust inhibition coating

Rigid or SUSPENSION

Whatever your reason the the Cache is compatible - The Knolly carbon fork is strong and comfortable, flat mount brake tabs and hidden fender moutns.



HUMAN CENTRIC SIZING

A huge range of sizes to suit riders of all shapes and sizes and each one rides to perfection.  Having deep roots in mountain biking the all-road Cache naturally has lots of stability and a confident handling and the low bottom bracket means you feel absolutely connected to the road, dirt or gravel.  A custom tubeset for each and every size means you get that fine tune Knolly ride quality, each one requiring new tooling - an expensive process, but we can say it's well worth it.

KNOLLY SIZING HELP

HUMAN SPECIFIC GEOMETRY

Knolly's have always been made to suit humans of all shapes and sizes - just look at the range of sizes for the Cache! I huge range to suit riders from 152cm all the way to 195cm and with a enough fidelity in between - it's almost as good as a full custom built frame.

Why do you need so many sizes? For a start the Cache is built to be a  ultra versatile bike if you want to punch out road miles on smooth pavement, generally you would size a little smaller. For a gravel oriented rider you would size in the middle for a bit more cornering stability.
