Equator Sensei

Sensei (先生) means "teacher" or "master" in Japanese. Sensei will teach you to enjoy gravel at both road and hardpack. This is a fast bike with a more aggressive geometry - a good transition point from road to gravel.

Frame Details

Steel's real, titanium's eternal deal

Our frames are made of 3Al-2.5V seamless tubes in aerospace quality.
Titanium is more comfortable than steel due to its vibration absorption, but unlike steel it is lighter and will not rust. It boasts the strength of carbon, but unlike carbon, it can withstand rough handling. So we've made a frame that will last a lifetime. A frame you can adapt to the conditions and terrain of the moment.

Variable geometry

Everyone has different requirements for the way a bike behaves, and we understand that. Our frames are optionally equipped with Cane Creek Angleset headsets. This allows you to change the fork angle in either direction by 0.5°, 1° or 1.5° depending on whether you want a more aggressive and agile geometry or a slacker and safer one.

Thin carbon fork to match the frame

Sensei is equipped with a sleek fork that matches the elegance of the frame. Fork with cage mounts can be added upon request.

Wide tyres or 2x?

The frame can accommodate tyres up to 47mm wide on 700c (28") wheels, up to 52mm on 650b (27.5") wheels. So you can have one pair of wheels for the road and one pair for more adventurous rides without changing the geometry significantly.
You can fit single chainrings up to 48T (44 - 46T oval) and double chainrings up to 50 / 34T.

Internal cable routing

Wiring installation is easy thanks to removable inserts. You can also fill unused frame entrances to prevent dirt from getting in.
The frame is ready for a fully mechanical kit including 2x systems and internally wired dropper post.

Multiple mounting points

In addition to the usual inner triangle, you will find a pair of mounting points next to the BB and on the top of the toptube. It is also possible to fit a rear or front rack.

Ovalized toptube

Looks great and makes the ride more comfortable adding a bit of vertical compliance. The bike is also more comfortable to carry in the hand or on the shoulder. And top frame panniers don't twist as much - thanks in part to a pair of bolts that allow for strapless installation.

Dropper post ready

Dropper is not just the domain of mountain bikes. You'll appreciate the ability to lower the saddle in the terrain even more on a taller gravel frame. Our frames are ready for 31.6 mm seatposts, so you have plenty of freedom of choice. Thanks to the fully internal routing, the control cable never leaves the frame.

Flat mount or post mount?

The frame is ready for flat mount calipers, which are visually cleaner and more common on gravel kits. If for some reason you would like to mount post mount calipers, this can be done by installing an adapter. Both options are open to you.
NOTE: Final version of the frame has the derailleur exit around the axle, so there's no insert on the right chainstay. Neat!

T47 Bottom Bracket

47 is the emerging standard of the bottom bracket originally designed by Chris King. It is a classic threaded system, so there is no need to worry about unwanted sounds like with many pressfit systems. The larger diameter makes the whole system more durable, more reliable, and results in a stronger frame tube joint.

SRAM UDH paddle and chain hanger

The UDH (Universal Derailleur Hanger) is SRAM's global standard. Therefore you can get it in any shop because it's not brand specific. It's simple to change and will rotate instead of bending in the event of a chain jam.
This also makes the frame ready for the new SRAM T-Type derailleurs.

For convenient service work, the right seatstay is fitted with a chain hanger. You're welcome.
