    BRING THE FUN

    The Hoot Ti is a premium titanium hardtail that was designed for bringing the fun to any line on the trail. The frame tubing is the 3Al/2.5V grade 9 titanium that has been an industry favorite for decades. This titanium tubing was selected because it is lightweight, lively, and emphasizes the playful Hoot Ti geometry. The bike features a custom Fox 36 Performance Elite Fork with 140mm of travel to optimize the Hoot Ti ride experience. 3-D titanium printing in the UDH rear dropouts and chainstay yoke pair with short stays for a playful ride. However you choose to ride this titanium hardtail, it’s guaranteed to be a Hoot.

    PLAYFUL GEOMETRY

    The geometry of Hoot Ti has one goal: fun. The 425mm chainstays are core to Hoot Ti because they add nimble, playful handling. The 65º head tube and 76º seat tube angles pair for a balanced riding position, while that slack head tube angle, long reach, and low bottom bracket drop of 60mm allow for confident downhill riding on aggressive trails. A shorter standover and lower top tube allow for longer travel dropper posts and more creative, playful riding without the bike getting in the way. Every detail of Hoot Ti contributes to a bike that will bring the party to any trail ride.

    TITANIUM FRAME

    The titanium tubing used in the Hoot Ti frame is the 3Al/2.5V grade 9 titanium tubing that has been an industry favorite for decades. This specific frame material was chosen because it is lightweight, lively, and responsive. These are necessary qualities for tubing that need to live up to the playful requirements of the Hoot Ti geometry.

    3-D TITANIUM PRINTING

    The key to bringing Hoot Ti to life. 3-D titanium printing is present in the rear dropouts and the chainstay yoke. Otso engineers leveraged this technology to give Hoot Ti short 425mm chainstays while maintaining the 29” x 2.6” tire clearance. This also allowed for a hidden dropper post routing port behind the BB shell and twin cable clamps that are molded into the chainstay yoke. 3-D titanium printing is also featured at the rear UDH dropouts for a clean look and a brake mount inside the rear triangle.

    CUSTOM FORK

    Hoot Ti is built with a custom Fox 36 Performance Elite 140mm travel fork. While any 140mm fork will work with Hoot Ti, Otso engineers worked directly with Fox for this custom option because they wanted the 36mm stanchion of the Fox 36 with the 140mm travel of the Fox 34. This sturdier stanchion is better suited for aggressive, chunky trail riding. The fork features the new Grip X damper, a 44mm offset, bleeders on the fork lower, and black stanchions with black lowers for a stealth look.

    AND SO MUCH MORE!

    UDH DROPOUTS

    Hoot Ti is compatible with all drivetrains with its UDH dropouts. The Custom Bike Builder has options for SRAM Transmission and Shimano drivetrains.

    140 OR 150mm TRAVEL

    We designed the Hoot Ti with a 140mm travel suspension fork in mind. It can also run a 150mm fork. We don't recommend going any bigger or smaller because it would significantly alter geometry.

    FOREVER BIKE

    Titanium is lightweight, durable, lively, and corrosion-resistant. We say titanium bikes are forever bikes because the frame will withstand the elements and the test of time.

    AMPLE CLEARANCE

    Tires need to meet demands of the trail for traction, stability, and comfort. Hoot Ti can fit 29" x 2.6" tires.
