“Since 1995 our business philosophy has been focused on the production of innovative, pioneering, and timeless products. Countless test wins and design awards speak for themselves. As a true trendsetter, Storck regularly develops highlights that keep marking milestones in frame and component engineering, as well as in cycling gear. Continuous further development of existing technologies, utilization of leading-edge materials, and excellence in design are Storck’s hallmarks. Many innovations that today are state of the art were developed, patented, and turned into marketable products by Storck.”
“A Storck for any terrain. The T.I.X. is a cross frame in a class of its own”.
T.I.X. – This is Cross – The Storck T.I.X. may be marketed as a cyclocross frame, it will do perfectly fine on your local gravel road – or gravel race. The bike offers plenty of tyre clearance – we believe the frame will accept 700c x 40mm tyres without any clearance worries.
Storck utilizes their DDS technology on the T.I.X. – “Directional Depending Stiffness” – which in a nutshell means no matter the size of T.I.X. frame, consistence performance is guaranteed through Storck’s purposely constructed carbon frame tubes.
Almost standard equipment on new gravel bikes these days, the T.I.X. headtube features a 1 1/8″ to 1 1/2″ taper – albeit a little bigger from the 1 1/4″ bottom heatset bearing that has been prevalent the last couple of years.
Storck’s RBC 180 handlebar features carbon fiber construction and very low weight, starting from 180 grams for the 40cm center to center bar. Clamp width is 31.8mm with a design emphasizing “compact and comfort”.
Shimano’s longer cage Ultegra Di2 GS derailleur pictured above. This derailleur can easily shift a 36 tooth rear cog, provided the B-screw is turned in enough. Fitted with Lindaret’s Roadlink, it will shift an 11-40 cassette without issue.
The Storck Platinum Edition seatpost measures 31.6mm wide x 400mm long in a claimed weight of 135 grams! – we assume sans hardware. The matt finish post supports regular saddles and those designed for the Monolink system. Note the lightweight and svelte seatpost clamp.
The Storck T.I.X. Platinum G1 is available in five sizes, from X-Small to X-Large with effective top tubes beginning at 504mm (XS) and ending at 585mm (XL). Frames weigh a claimed 890 grams / forks at 400 grams.
