Kingdom Bike Vendetta X2

A Titanium Hardcore Hardtail

Kingdom Bike Vendetta X2

KINGDOM Bike Vendetta X2 available now in limited quantities

The Vendetta X2 – Our dream 

One of Kingdom Bike’s original visions 10 years ago was to make a no compromise, affordable hardcore hardtail in Titanium.  With every progression of our flagship Vendetta hardtail over its decade of development we’ve added features and innovations drawn from our own experiences as riders, designers and engineers. And with each evolution we have edged closer to perfection, but all at a literal price.  Every advance in the Vendetta’s DNA adds to its production costs, which is why we really aren’t laughing when we say the price on our frames is as low as we can go.  However, as a celebration of 10 years of the Vendetta, we decided to drop the Ti-Bomb and finally fulfill our dream – breaking the triangle of durability vs. cost vs. weight. 

This past July 1st we were proud to announce the addition of the ground breaking new Vendetta X2.  It was released online through our social media feeds with little fanfare (our typical marketing style - let the bikes speak for themselves).  We produced a small run of frames that almost immediately sold out.  Given the positive reception and since we love you guys so much, we decided to squeeze in one last end of the 2017 year production run to give you all another chance at our Vendetta X2. 

This second production run of the Vendetta X2 will have a total of 12 frames manufactured (that's 12 total between sizes small to x-large)

Vendetta X2 Geometry Chart




Geometry

The Vendetta X2 has geometry figures that follow the new school ethos of a long, low, slack.  If you like charging hard downhill, slapping berms, whipping the that rear and just all around hardtail hooning, this whips for you!  Might we also mention that this rig climbs with aplomb given our specified seat tube angle of 74*. 

WHAT IS IT? 
The Vendetta X2 is a balls out, tough as nails hardcore hardtail in the tradition of all our Vendettas. In fact, it’s a mirror image of its siblings in terms of geometry, only it is simplified with a few of the costly CNC details removed. 

So what’s so ground breaking about simplifying an existing frame? Put simply, the price.  

The Vendetta X2 finally makes lightweight, durable, beautiful Titanium affordable.  What’s different on the Vendetta X2?  The Vendetta X2 uses the same Ti-3Al-2.5V aircraft grade Titanium tubing and is fabricated by the same welders that make all our Vendettas, we just simplified the frame and removed some of the expensive CNC details. 

44mm straight tubed Headtube

The CNC tapered Ti head tube is one of the biggest costs on our frames, so by using a straight 44 head tube we have removed a huge manufacturing expense. The 44 head tube means you can still use tapered forks with an external cup lower headset.  

non-driveside dropout

The Vendetta X2 uses tab brake mounts instead of post mounts and the dropouts are rounded Breezer style with a replaceable rear hanger rather than our custom CNC Kingdom dropouts.

Routing 

The Vendetta X2 has external cable routing rather than internal routing, although we still have stealth routing on the seat tube for a dropper post. 

ISCG We decided to re-introduce the ISCG05 mount, as a lot of our customers have asked us for this on their frames so we figured why not? 

Customisation The X2 is an off the shelf titanium frame, this means we are unable to offer any customisation, if you need geometry and frame specification changes then the other Vendettas are for you. 

Finish We're offering the X2 in one finish, raw. Our most popular finish is a cleaned raw titanium with exposed welds for that au-naturale look. cue audio from ol dirty bastard: "Ooh, baby, I like it raw " 

Wheel sizing The Vendetta X2 can be anything you want: 27.5, 27.5+ or 29er, this outstanding hardtail will accept all wheel options. 

Extra sizes We've added a small X2 frame to the range. This frame is designed for 24 and 26" wheel/tyres its exactly like a Vendetta X2 but designed to fit riders aged 8 years upwards.
