Czar is Echo's sister brand which focuses on delivering high quality street-trials bikes at an affordable price. All bikes are built around alloy, anodized components and sealed bearing headset, BB and hubs for prolonged lifespan. 7075 high rise handlebars come as standard, as do grippy Maxxis Holy Roller tyres.
The Ion bike is a high level entry model focused on low weight and tends more towards the trials side of street-trials. At under 10kgs, this is one of the lightest street-trials bikes around.
The Neuron is built for maximum strength and rigidity, featuring vertical dropouts, a 15mm front thru-axle, and tapered head tube with the optional possibility of routing the front brake hose through the steerer tube. A street focused drivetrain is combined with a 72 engagement point freehub and a robust front bashring.
Pro models come upgraded with titanium bolts, CNC milled cranks and stem and fantastic Czar hydraulic disc brakes.
The standard brake setup is a pair of Avid BB5's coupled to FR5 levers through Jagwire cables. As of 2018, we are offering brake upgrades from Magura and Hope for all standard Ion and Neuron models allowing you to experience top level performance without the need to purchase additional brakes separately. Steerer hose routing is optional for the Neuron models.
