2017 Spot Ajax

An Urban Ninja

Shhhh. What was that? Ajax moves through the city with stealth and speed, an urban ninja in matte black. Wired bestowed the Ajax with a Gear of the Year award and called it their “favorite urban velocipede we tested this year;” lofty praise from the oracles of innovation. At the heart of this bike’s performance is its new-school drivetrain: an eight-speed Alfine internal hub and super-smooth belt drive that slices through the city like a shinobi in the night. A favorite of tech-heads and entrepreneurs from Palo Alto to Brooklyn, the Ajax delivers across the metrics that matter: performance, engineering and, with many of the same high-end features as our Acme, value. Alas, even urban ninjas must complete the mission on budget.

Note: The 50cm Ajax is a 2016. The specs are the same as the 2017. The only difference is a minor variation in the downtube graphics and the head badge.
