The purest form of off-road exploration

Joe’s legacy built for today’s riders. The Lightning uses modern construction to evolve the iconic model into a more refined trail machine. Using Japan-sourced seamless-drawn, double-butted chromoly tubing, thru-axle rear dropouts and Boost 148 rear hub spacing, the Lightning proves that steel is still the perfect material to build a light, lively and durable frame.

Key Features
  • Seamless-drawn Japanese Chromoly steel frame
  • 29/27+ compatible w/Boost-148 spacing
  • Fox 34 Rhythm 120mm-travel fork
  • SRAM 1x12 NX/GX Eagle drivetrain
  • KS dropper seatpost 

JFE Steel

JFE STEEL TUBING: Used on flagship Breezer models, we source special, untreated tubing straight from one of the largest steel producers in the world based in Japan. We do this as it allows us to modify the outer shape and thickness of the tubes in ways that can’t be done with off-the-shelf pre-treated tubing. The biggest advantage is the ability to hydroform the tubes to create our D’fusion tube profiles.  This process requires special control of the tube temperature for forming that result in a shape that offers greater rigidity for the tube junctions without added weight.  Learn More

Apex Force Transfer Braking

APEX DISC MOUNT: The Breezer Apex Force Transfer (AFT) brake mount anchors the rear disc-brake caliper on both the chainstay and seatstay. This construction method offers both a strength and weight-savings advantage due to allowing the stress of the caliper’s braking force to be distributed over a larger area between two tubes instead of just the chainstay. The dynamic braking force inherent to this position also reduces brake chatter, and the caliper is safely protected within the rear triangle and out of danger from objects that could impact it in a crash or while navigating technical terrain.  Learn More
