Rat Snake LITE

The LITE is a simplified version of the Rat Snake. The geometry is the same, but we forgo some of the fancier qualities like the extra down tube bends and tapered head tube. We've also made it more customizable by adding options for slider dropouts or the eccentric bottom bracket. The RS LITE comes standard with fixed Sram UDH Round style dropouts, 160mm disc brake tab, 73mm English threaded bottom bracket shell and straight 44mm head tube. It still features the custom bend chain and seat stays as they are part of the best attributes of the ride quality of the 'Snake, plus the routing for internal dropper posts. Want one or more of the features that come on the Premium Rat Snake? We got you covered! Just select what you want when submitting the custom order form. Available as Frame, Frame&Fork, Semi-Complete and Ready to Ride Complete.

Starting at $1149.00
