Press Release: Lynskey Performance releases industry first 6AL/4V Titanium Gravel Bike

Introducing the PRO GR – the first and only Hand-Built Gravel Bike with a 6AL/4V Aerospace Grade Titanium Tubeset. Our design engineers have created a revolutionary marvel of strength, durability, stiffness, and comfort — like no other in the world. Embrace the freedom and power to explore — on any ground — no matter how extreme.”

“The PRO GR possesses the power transfer and precision-handling capabilities, traditionally only found in our top tier Pro Level Performance bikes. Our visionary PRO GR power-focused/watt crushing geometry redefines the Gravel Bike World — the PRO GR stands alone at the top. Let the PRO GR propel your journey; whether an aggressive Gravel performance bike or an epic adventure machine with no limits.”

Other features include:

  • Performance engineered triangular top tube and down tube for ultimate stiffness, stability, and optimal comfort.

  • Tapered Headtube ensures precision handling when paired with Lynskey’s elite carbon PRO GR Gravel fork.
  • Helix shaped seatstays resist vertical forces to propel the rider up those epic climbs.
  • Clearance for 700c x 45 or 27.5 x 2.1 tires allows you unlimited choices when matching tires to your riding style.

  • Unique “plate style” chainstay design* allows ample tire and chainring clearance without having to extend the chainstays to lengths that create poor performance.
  • Cable routing that accepts either hydraulic or mechanical disc brake lines.

  • Only Lynskey offers a proprietary rear dropout design that accepts either a 9mm Quick Release or a 12mm Thru axle.
  • Wright style dropouts with replaceable rear derailleur hanger.

  • Rack and Fender mounts are standard.
  • As are all our bikes the PRO GR is 100% hand built by our artisan craftsmen in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

*The plate chainstay design also features on the Lynskey GR250, the sister bike to the PRO GR, a bike we have been reviewing long term. Our video review of the GR250 will be posting soon, please watch this space. We’ll be reviewing the Lynskey PRO GR at a later date.

    Aside from being exotic and far more expensive…tell me again why 6/4 is so much better than 3/2.5? There’s a reason Lynskey is the “first” gravel bike in 6/4….because most other shops have quit welding the stuff as the benefit is dubious and the material very expensive and hard to get ahold of.

      Your question is best posed to Lynskey… 6/4 is definitely more expensive and from what I understand, harder to work with. The exclusive factor will appeal to some riders for sure, and I’m certain that is the market Lynskey is interested in capturing.

    6/4 had dropped off of the bike market mostly as a matter of expense and availability, which was supposed to have become sporadic. The benefits are increased strength, durability and notably lighter weight.

      Another “issue” with most 6/4 (that I’ve read about…) is that it is typically only available as sheets, not drawn, seamless tubes. Lynskey has to carefully weld a seem along the entire side of the shaped “tube”, and if not done correctly, leads to failures. As others have mentioned, the benefit of full 6/4 tubing over seamless 3/2.5 are questionable, especially given the fact that it’s near impossible to get drawn, seamless 6/4 tubes. I’ve been thrilled with my 3/2.5 Ti bike’s reliability and ride quality. PS: I own a GR250… Solid bike with great capability (as JOM amply pointed out).

        That is correct. All of Lynskey’s 6/4 begins life as a sheet. I hope to have the Lynskey factory tour video online early next week.

    I am also interested in a review and the affects of the triangular tubes on ride quality/ lateral stiffness at the BB compared to the GR 25 3 2.5 round tubes. The helix seat-stays are interesting as well.
