You may have noticed something weird that launched, something unexpected. Moots, long known for their high-end titanium bicycles surprised everyone with a carbon fiber gravel e-bike, using a frame material they’ve never used before, and adding a motor for the first time in their history.
I talked to Nate Bradley, Moots’ president and one of the key people behind the new model, about how it came to be, why they did it, and what’s next for the brand. And, of course, we talk about those wild oversized 750D gravel wheels and tires they showed off at SBT and the MADE show.
We also talk about what’s next for Moots, some of the projects they’re working on, and why it seems like they’re on a current roll with rapid product introductions.
