From its titanium frame to the made in Germany Pinion gearbox, the Thar is built to last.

The vast Thar desert forms a natural border between Pakistan and India’s Nothwest.

In this kind if rugged desert reliable equipment is a matter of survival, and Sandman’s Thar lives up to this mantra.

Skilfully welded from 3AL 2.5V titanium tubing, the frame is completely rust proof.

For a more precise handling Sandman has opted for a 177x12mm thru-axle in the rear stiffness.

The bottom bracket section of the Thar is a die-cast unit built specifically to house Pinion’s 18 speed gearbox.

This marvel of German engineering has proven its worth and reliability during various long expeditions, so it’s a perfect choice for the Thar.

Depending on your preference the bike comes with a traditional chain or with a carbon-reinforced belt drive.

As for the fork, you get to choose from either a rigid carbon fork or Sandman’s own upside-down fork with 110mm of travel

. For extra strength the frame of the Thar is heat-treated after alignment and it comes with a 2 year warranty for the original owner according to EN standards.

Frame weicht is around 1800grs (without the Pinion gearbox) depending on it’s size.
Available sizes: S,M,L,XL Available colors: Brushed Titanium
