Astr Sidewinder Black
Bull Black. Striking and forceful. Take your time with the sidewinder, and then get ready to charge.
- The one-piece Quill stem and the Lugged-fork & Lugged-seat post clamp help in the sidewinder’s neat, stylized and classical look.
- The classical sidewinder frame is a Pista frame hand-built in a boutique factory in Taiwan. The name is in reverence to the word Pista (track in Italian) which inspired the aggressive frame geometry in sidewinder, which helps in a more responsive ride.
- Even the saddle; it’s a 50s-style Retro-style saddle with cross stitching.
- Chrome-plated handle bars, cranks, wheels and pedals make for the “slick of the sidewinder”.
The Double-butted tubing is the sinew in the spine. Makes for lighter yet stronger cycle frames. If you were ever to cut a cross-section, you’ll see amazingly engineered tubing which is designed lighter and thinner at the least stress points and thicker at the maximum stress points.
- The 4130 Chromoly steel was originally developed for aircraft, it has one of the highest grade of steel used in bicycles.
