Description

The Mettle was launched to wide success and we’re proud to bring the last few of the original Mettles remaining at a killer deal bargain price.

With almost 20 years of experience, multiple national 4x championship wins, and one BMX race world champion, we started a fresh project – code named the R01. We spent a long time studying a lot of graphs, but more time riding, racing and analysing our prototypes. 3 years of testing, refining and repeating all boils down to what we show you today. A product well worthy of carrying the Identiti name forward into the rowdiest trails you can find.

Simply put, when we designed the Mettle V1 – we took advantage of the greatest technologies to offer what is the best bike we have ever made. Built to take a hammering. Day in. Day out.

However, you don’t have to take our word for this being a great frame to build a bike around – just listen to the magazines:

MBUK magazine

“There’s a surefooted robustness to the feel of the Mettle. The stiffness of the chassis gives an urgency to split second changes of direction.”

MBR magazine

Identiti has done a great job with the Mettle. The proportions and angles align perfectly, and even with three frame sizes, it offers a better fit than most bikes with five.”

Singletrack Magzine

“Identiti has produced a bike that does exactly what it says on the tin – it’s a strong, properly designed, take-no-prisoners enduro bike,

with a well thought out geometry and an excellent suspension system. It’s fine on the ups, ace on the alongs and a total hoot on the downs. Our test bike might boast a subtle and understated colour scheme, but the Mettle shouts loudest when it’s ridden hard.”
