2017 WTP Atlas gets some Wow factor

5 09 2016

The 2017 We The People (WTP) Atlas is getting a little added “Wow factor” this model year with a new candy apple red paint job.

Topped off with chrome and polished parts from WTP and SaltPlus, this 24″ is a real looker.

It’s a bit reminiscent, in colorway terms, of the 2011 Avenger.

Of course The Avenger,  as you might recall from last year’s Interbike coverage, has now morphed into a 26″ retro-style cruiser in the WTP lineup.

But I digress…

The Atlas, besides its eye-catching new candy apple colorway, hasn’t changed much in the geo/specs department since the previous model year.

But in the case of the Atlas, there isn’t much need to.

It sports a full cromo frame, fork and handlebar.

The specs are also on point:

  • Head tube: 74 degrees
  • Seat tube angle: 72 degrees
  • Top tube length: 22″
  • Chain stay: 14.6″
  • BB height: 12.7″
  • Stand over height: 9.7″

The roomy 22″ top tube, high-but-not-too-high bb, and short-ish chain-stays suggest this might be just the ticket if you’re looking for a more trails-oriented 24 (the Kenda “Small Block 8” tires are also another hint in this direction).

It’s hard to go wrong with this bike…and with its eye-catching new colorway, it’s kinda hard to resist.
