Katahdin – Apex
***AVAILABLE SPRING 2019***
We love to say that the Katahdin is our cottage bike. You’ll guess that this gravel bike is really in its element in the countryside, perfect for all types of roads and paths that can be found out there.
Exclusive to Panorama Cycles, and an industry first, a unique composite lamination is designed for the untapped and unpredictable wilderness adventures. This construction incorporates an advanced material, the Xantu.Layr™, which bring the Katahdin performance and durability to new heights.
The curvy surfaces of the bike have become a canva for the very talented duo of Vancouver-based artists Pellvetica. They sign the visual of the frame, and thus give the soul to this amazing product.
A 1x SRAM Apex group, WTB i23 Wheels, Easton EA50AX handlebar and a ton of frame and fork mounts for your short or long outings, makes the Katahdin so much versatile.
Note that the cottage is unfortunately not included with the purchase of the bike 😉

Sandy and Steve Pell, two Vancouver-based artists, are not only super talented, but also passionate cyclists. They form the Pellvetica duo.
We are very excited and proud to partner with them for the Katahdin gravel bike.
Together, the Pells have developed a style all of their own that has grabbed global attention. Their ability to transform blank spaces into memorable places, has also garnered a positive reputation among the interior design community, winning them awards for their mural work such as Top 10 of the World’s Coolest Offices.
Working from our gravel bike frame, they turned the frame into a spectacular work of art.
Gray wolves play a key role in keeping our ecosystems healthy. Traveling in groups of 7 or 8, they develop strong social bonds within their packs as analogous to that of a group of cyclists…
With complex communication systems ranging from barks and whines to growls and howls, these animals are most active at dawn and dusk. They howl most on a full moon, when the nights are the brightest.
“For our artwork, we’ve selected white line work on a black frame to mimic the reflection of a glowing moon behind howling wolves.
Highlights of light cremes, warm tans, and rich dark browns emulates this majestic animal’s fur.”
