Pistil XC Full Suspension Titanium/Alloy

The Sanitas Pistil XC full suspension titanium is individually handcrafted using carefully selected, oversized. cold worked 3/2.5 titanium tubing. 

Each and every frame is hand built one by one in our Durango, Colorado facility to provide a ride that’s designed specifically for the customers riding style and needs in mind.

Designed with signature s-bend seat stays, s-bend chainstays, and hand pick oversized cold worked and stress relieved titanium tubing, the Pistil XC delivers nimble handling while at the same time providing exceptional climbing and descending ability.

We design the Pistil XC to provide ample tire clearance and just over 4.0” (100mm) of travel to deliver a smooth ride over all types of terrain.  The Pistil XC incorporates a unique concentric bottom bracket pivot which allows the rear travel to work as one unit so the bike can be ridden as geared or as single speed.

Each frame is custom designed and built at no additional charge so you can choose between 29, 27.5 or 26” wheel platforms.

If you prefer stock geometry, please refer to our attached sizing charge.

In addition, we have a multitude of frame finish options available as well as custom anodization by Agave Frame Finishing for an upcharge.
