26″ Cult x VANS tires at the beach

26 01 2017

Cult Bikes and Vans just dropped a video of street phenomenon, Dakota Roche, trying out the 26″ Cult x Vans collab tire.

The tires we checked out last year at Interbike and come stock on the 26″ Cult Devotion.

You would think that Dak would just grab the 26″ Devotion to test out the tires…but Dak had other plans.

Dak went in a bit of a different direction…mounting them on something a bit more “beach-inspired”.

I won’t say that hilarity ensued…but it is kinda amusing.

Check it.





A closer look at the Cult Devotion 26

14 10 2016

The Cult Devotion 26 caught our eye at Interbike last month.

It was a bit of a departure from the 24″ cruisers Cult had put out in the past.

At the time, we didn’t have too many details …besides learning that it was full cro-mo (frame, fork and handlebars) and that it was kitted out with the new 26″ Vans tires.

Since then we’ve found out more about the Cult Devotion 26.

Geometry-wise, the 26″ Devotion’s numbers stacks up as follows:

  • Head angle: 72 degrees
  • Seat angle 72 degrees
  • Top tube: 22″
  • Chain stay: 16″
  • Bottom Bracket: 12.2″

Wheel-wise, you’re looking at a single-wall front rim and a double-wall rear rim, both paired up with sealed hubs (female axle on the front).

And as mentioned above, the wheels are sporting the fab new 26″ Vans tires (which are 2.30 width).

All in all, a pretty cool 26er from the folks at Cult.

(If you’re in the market for the Vans tires though, you’re going to have to wait a bit longer…ETA is January 2017.)
