the Hook AL

The Hook AL is the race ready aluminum cross bike...thanks to integrated rear rack and fender mounts its also versatile for life between weekend races.

"The Hook AL takes the established Hook bikes and gives it a more CX race-oriented flavour, but retains the hallmark of a Bombtrack, versatility."

Introducing the Hook AL

Although we love our steel bikes (as you might have guessed), there will always be a certain lure to the aggressive and oversized forms of an Aluminum frame that will make us stop and stare. The Hook AL takes our established Hook bikes and gives it a more race-oriented flavour. The geometry has been tweaked and components selected to back up this purpose, from the Clement MXP tires to the Apex 1×11 driver train, the Hook AL is clear in its purpose. The 6061 double butted alloy frame with oversized down tube and square section chain stays provide a super stiff base to ensure all the energy goes into the rear wheel. Up front the steerer tube is tapered with a matching full carbon fork to ensure handling is pin point accurate. The Hook AL is easily kept under control thanks to the new double butted CX-10 flared drop bar and Apex hydraulic brakes. For those more lethargic re-mounts the new Pro saddle provides a healthy area of landing platform.

Highlights

CX race oriented geometry, with lower BB and longer head tube for increased stack height.

6061-T6 double butted alloy frame, with formed top and down tube profiles.

Full enclosed rear derailleur routing for smoother shifting.

Box section chain stays for better mud/tire clearance and improved stiffness.

Straight blade full carbon CX fork with fender mounts.

SRAM Apex-1 11-speed drivetrain with 40t X-Sync chainring and wider range 11-42 cassette.
