A New Model with Old Roots
It might seem strange that a company built on developing full suspension bikes has launched a Gravel bike but we have always done things differently and sometimes it is good to do the unexpected. The Knolly crew have been riding for a long time and through our time in the saddle and personal careers one thing has always been constant, we are happiest when we are on two wheels. So with an entire lineup of new full suspension models designed and heading into the production phase, we focused on a new type of Knolly, one that we wanted to build just for the hell of it (and a sign of things to come).
OK, let's be honest, we wanted to add a bike to our personal quiver. But that's the best part of being a bike company isn't it? We build cool stuff and ride it. And when we have something new to bring to market, we get excited!
Knolly CEO and Head Engineer, Noel Buckley, wanted a gravel bike that would deliver a ride experience similar to our mountain bikes. He wanted a bike that could go harder and farther, while also immediately feeling "right", with minimum adaption time. To differentiate our CACHE from the cattle, Noel custom designed a titanium bike with a longer front center (like our off road products), which when combined with a shorter stem gives the bike amazing handling characteristics and total compliance.
