Production Privee unveils a titanium Dirt Jump semi-rigid bike prototype



Production Privee d’Andorra is best known for its steel semi-rigid bikes and full suspension bikes which come in colors inspired by the famous racing car liveries. Now, the Damein Nosella brand is expanding its stands and adding a new titanium hardtail.
It is currently a unique prototype designed specifically for Pavel Alekhin, the 31-year-old Russian freerider. Production Privée literally translates to Production Privée, so they challenged themselves to create something unique to welcome the new team member. In collaboration with the Forestal Technology Center, it is made of 3AL-2.5V titanium with custom tubes and park geometry. This bike was not designed for any particular car, but its raw finish would place it in Production Privee’s MacLaren F1-inspired raw “Classic” lineup.

Frame material: Titanium, 3AL-2.5V
Wheel size: 26 “
Intended use: Land jump
Weight: 8.8 kg (19.4 lbs)
Price: N / A

Titanium allows Production Privee to reduce the weight of the frame and also increases the strength and stiffness / weight ratio compared to the steel it usually uses. This means he can provide an extremely strong, efficient and lightweight frame that delivers a smooth ride that he says will allow Pavel to push the limits of his ride. The frame tips the scales at 1.9 kg (4.2 lbs) with full construction reaching up to 8.8 kg (19.4 lbs) in Pavel’s minimalist single-speed, brake-less setup.

Focus on the welding work of Production Privée and the FTC

The raw finish of the bike is offset by wild, multi-colored Industry 9 single-speed wheels.

Production Privee said it would consider making a production version of this frame, although it is unlikely to be a non-brake version as Pavel uses it. The cost of this frame would be around 2,000 €.

More exciting than that, it looks like it won’t be the last brand of titanium we’ll see from the brand; when we asked Damian if he had any other plans to work with the material, he said, “Yes, and sooner than expected! And other exotic and exciting stuff in 2021. We’re working really hard on some R&D process which we will probably put a position to open a new door for manufacturing in Europe. Having our CNC and our welding in house has already allowed us to achieve successful proofs of concept. I hope we can unveil some of it. these novelties during the 2nd quarter of 2021. “
