After two years of prototyping, Venice Beach, California-based Blackheart Bike Company has officially launched with a single titanium all-road frameset that founder Zach Lambert says, “looks and handles like a road bike on road, but has the capability of a modern gravel bike off road.”

With 422mm chainstays and relatively modest 700c x 37mm / 650b x 47mm tire clearance, BlackHeart’s titanium all-road frame looks like it could be an appealing option for the gravel racing and endurance bikepacking crowds (races like the Transcontinental come to mind), though perhaps not for expedition-minded riders, especially given its PF30 bottom bracket and lack of fork mounts.

This short video helps paint a picture of the brand and its fast and light ethos:
