El Comandante SS

"The Commander"

Our 29er singlespeed, El Comandante, features our legendary Ventana lateral stiffness, adjustable dropouts and geometry perfected for hammering the single track. Smooth rolling in the rough, and unbelievable traction are the two main attributes of 29” wheels, and El Comandante exploits them to the fullest with our new tapered head tube and pressFit 30 bottom bracket.
