Introduced as a colorful prototype at Saddle Drive, Foundry’s entry into the 27.5″ world was shown in production trim at Interbike. Called the Tomahawk, the carbon hard tail is geared towards racing. After trying out a few different finishes with their prototype, the production bike is back to Foundry’s carbon heavy aesthetic with muted graphics.
Other than the color change, not much is different from the prototype that we rode at Saddle Drive. The Tomahawk fits the Foundry Ethos – high performance but fairly understated.
The Foundry Tomahawk sees a BB92 press fit bottom bracket and a 142x12mm Syntace style thru axle with dedicated vertical dropouts. There will be two complete builds as well as a frameset offered through QBP – a $3175 SLX build, and a $4050 X01 build seen here, while the frame and headset will retail for $2050.
