BUILT TO PERFORM....

You all know the cliché by now... modern, low, slack... yeah, we can all tick boxes right?

The Chilli Dog is designed and engineered to meet the demands of modern enduro riding; we could give you the marketing speel, but the fact is it JUST WORKS. A raw riding experience, at home between the tapes or the singletrack of your local woods. 

Smart geometry and quality materials with some added spice.

And the best thing? Select your reach measurement to gain that perfect size and balance for your riding style, complete with full custom colours

Its PROPER GOOD...

Available in both 29inch (290) & 27.5inch (275) wheel specific. 275 is in development, not expected until fall 2023.

Tough & Reliable; designed, manufactured and tested in the U.K....

Each Chilli dog frame is hand welded in the UK by a guy with a beard & dangerous haircut.... using the highest quality of UK sourced Reynolds Steel.

We use a tri blend of Reynolds 853, 631 and 525. Reynolds 853 DZB (Triple butted) TT & DT, matted to 631 & 525 tubes give the ultimate blend of strength, compliance and weight.

Because of its extremely high strength & air hardening capabilities, the tubing profile can be drawn with super thin walls, without compromising its integrity. The triple butt tubes allow us to run a tick wall at the tube ends, but reduce this in the centre by nearly 50%. This gives a super compliant ride, on a seriously tough frame.

The remainder of the parts are also UK sourced, except for our individually CNC'd yoke, which is fabricated to an extremely high quality in Germany. Our yoke is engineered specifically to cater to the needs of the Chilli Dog, giving exceptional rear clearance, composure and power transfer.


The frames are coated by hand, including individual airbrushed decals, making each frame that extra special. The frames are then given their final party piece; the Radical Headbadge... Cast in pewter, by hand... by a bloke... in a shed...

  • Top tubes run across the same line on all sizes, offering leading standover clearance. Perfect for sizing flexibility and keeping the frame out of your way!

  • A slack head angle with a 140-160mm fork means the bike remains composed and slack, no matter the terrain.

    Sizing

    Struggling with what reach to choose? Why not check out our sizing chart...

    The frames have short seat tubes with a very low standover, so sizing is very flexible and more centred around the length. We recommend the use of longer dropper posts and shorter stems (35-50mm) dependant on sizing. 

     

    This is our GUIDE and how we would recommend the sizing. This is certainly not a definitive recommendation, so riders should choose to how they prefer their bike!

    Are you on the lower end of a scale? Not a problem; thanks to the short seat tubes and lower standover this is not a problem.

    Sizing up, or on the shorter end of the scale? shorter dropper post/35mm stem

    Sizing down, or on the larger end of the scale? Longer dropper post/ 50mm stem.

     

     

    Seat post insertion depths 

    Short, straight seat tubes allow for most 200mm droppers to be fully inserted. See max seat post insertions;

    445 to 465mm Reach: 290mm

    475 to 485mm Reach: 305mm

    495 to 505mm Reach: 320mm

     

    As our frames are made to order, Radical All Mountain reserves the right to re-corporate any costs associate with cancelled orders, where manufacturing or coating has already taken place.

    Thanks to our reduced lead times and stocking of material, there are no costs associated to loss of revenue on material. This means you will have adequate time and updates to cancel an order before incurring cancellation costs compared to other brands!

    Care Instructions

    FRAME MAINTENANCE

    Steel frames are TOUGH.... really TOUGH... but It is important to maintain your frames corrosion/rust resistance to ensure the material integrity remains high throughout its lifespan.

     

    HOW ARE FRAMES PROTECTED?

    All of our frames are coated externally with a clear coat finish for extra protection. We would always suggest 'Invisiframe' (or similar) frame protection is installed to maximise protection.

    For our UK made frames, we treat the internals using Anti Corrosion Formula 50 (ACF-50). This product is renowned for its use in the aviation and motorsport industry. 

    This formula is injected into the frames after external coating. Thanks to the way this product can be applied using a 360 degree injector hose, it means we can get further into the frame than some other applications, giving a greater degree of protection.

     

    INSTALLATION

    It is extremely important that you grease your seat post prior to installation. If you do not, over time, a process knows as 'Galvanic Corrosion' (reaction of Aluminium to Steel) occurs, and the seat post will become extremely difficult to remove from the frame. We would also recommend twisting the seat post slightly every few rides.

    Grease in other contact areas such as headtube and BB should also be used.

     

    HOW SHOULD I MAINTAIN MY FRAME?

    You should always spray a water displacement aerosol through the grommets and BB hole after every wash/wet ride.

    The tubes are internally treater with ACF-50 which remains 'active' for up to 12 months, however we recommend spraying ACF-50 (in aerosol form for ease) or other water displacement aerosols into all internally exposed areas every 3 months. This includes:

    • Down the internals of the seat tube
    • Bottom bracket (internal)
    • Through the routing grommets
    • Headtube
