Description

Ellsworth Enlightenment 29″

Handcrafted

Ellsworth Handcrafted means that you’ll get the absolute best bike possible – every bike is produced for our end users as if it is to be our own. They are designed and engineered in Southern California, and we use as much US manufacturing and domestically sourced material as we can. That said, it is sometimes necessary to employ the skills and know-how of others outside our borders because our true focus is always on the processes, procedures and materials. We’re constantly striving for the best blend of light weight, strength, and durability. We aim for the best handling and suspension efficiency. When you throw a leg over your Ellsworth bicycle, you can be 100% sure that we worked diligently to deliver the best ride possible.

Why Ellsworth?

Masters of the craft

Some aficionados might tell you the key to a great bicycle is the material from which it’s made: carbon, aluminum, titanium, steel, etc. At Ellsworth Handcrafted Bicycles, we believe it’s not the material that is the most important, but what is done with it. We call this Material Management. We manage every material we use from its raw form to the finished product. We employ high modulus carbon fiber and aerospace aluminum alloys, and by exploiting each material’s unique strengths we create some of the most technologically advanced bicycle frames on the planet. What we’re even more proud of is that we’re helping to create your next great ride experience.

Ellsworth Carbon

Ellsworth Carbon Fiber bike frames are very lightweight, yet they possess the strength and stiffness necessary to survive the rigors of hard riding in varied terrain. We can create this magical blend of physical characteristics because the orientation and number of each individual layer of carbon fibers in the production frame is specified according to a carefully engineered design schedule. The result is a composite structure that provides the best possible ride quality, durability, and performance. We also offer the reassurance that your bicycle was manufactured in a socially and environmentally responsible manner. Our high-modulus Toray carbon is certified and carefully tracked from its creation all the way to its use in our frame molds

Torque tube pivot

The Ellsworth Torque Tube Pivots ensure absolute stiffness and durability. The system utilizes oversize dual row angular contact sealed cartridge bearings. These full complement bearings were originally designed for military applications and were only recently declassified. What they offer is maximum load bearing capacity as well as the ability to fine-tune the preload to eliminate axial and radial play. Each bearing rotates on hollow 7075 pivot pins. They are custom made for each Ellsworth application and are smooth-shouldered for a perfect fit inside the inner race of the bearings. All of these factors make our Torque Tube Pivots the stiffest, most advanced pivot system in the industry.

Rocker Locker

The Ellsworth Rocker Locker replaces traditional shock eye hardware with a custom machined 7075 pivot pin. This shock pin is a small piece, but it plays a big role in making our rear suspension perform as well as it does. It employs an oval shape on both ends that interfaces with a corresponding oval socket in the rocker to effectively lock the two rocker plates together for extreme torsional stiffness. Its hardened surface glides through durable, IGUS bushings in the shock eye for a stiction-free assembly.
