Highlight and Features
Specification, Options and Prices
- Exclusive frame with steep angles built with tubes in chromium-molybdenum steel grade 4130. A more expensive and more resilient steel grade that after welding is heat-treated to restore the metal’s strongest crystalline structure and making the weld joints become one with the frame. The frame is light, strong and more flexible with increased driving experience. The frame is welded with TIG welding. A slow hard welding technique that produces strong thin joints. The frame details are brazed with brass band. True craftsmanship is beautiful and provides the best driving skills.
- The frame’s top tube is double butted with dimensions 0.9 mm – 0.6 – 0.9 mm.
- Elegant fork with cast steel crown. Fork legs in chrome molybdenum steel 4130. Fork legs are brazed to the cast fork. Very precise and responsive.

Why ride a Pilen?
The first and foremost argument is no doubt that you get a lot of bike for the buck. The Pilen only has but a few employees, and everyone in the company is able to build a bicycle with quality in the smallest detail. The bicycles are built at a lean production line that the Pilen folks built entirely on their own – a line that is subject to constant improvement.
You can choose the equipment level on all models. If you want a bike with just the bare necessities or spend a little extra, you have the chance to compose your own personal bike. Compare the Pilen’s driving experience and the equipment level with other bicycle brands. The bike feels neater and more lively.
