Manchester based Burgtec are total downhill racing obsessives, who have been gradually carving a niche for their very fine set of products since 2009. Each product has come out of rider need and has been produced to fill a gap in the market rather than run with the herd. From stems and bars, to mudguards and replacement shock hardwear, each bit of kit has been tested to destruction before release to the market. With riders such as Josh 'Ratboy' Bryceland on board, you can be certain that Burgtec make sure the kit has been ridden hard and fine tuned so that you get the perfect components on your bike.
Burgtec's bar and stem combinations are first rate. With hardcore Ride Wide DH bars and lightweight carbon trail offerings, Burgtec have your bar needs covered. Their beautifully CNC machined stems are works of art with models specifically aimed at the demands of the enduro and downhill. With Burgtec steering up front, you will have total control and confidence, as well as knowing you are supporting the best of British in your bike.
Down at the power end, Burgtec produce brilliant 1x specific chain rings, world cup wining pedals and hub & shock bearing kits. The matchless Penthouse pedals in cr-mo or titanium axle flavour gives incredible grip and feel - so good, in fact, that they have converted many SPD riders over to flats. Unlike some models, Burgtec produce a full range of pedal spares, so you can keep your Penthouses spinning for years on end.
Back in the cockpit you have the Burgtec Xpress seatpost and Cloud saddle. Balancing strength and weight, the Xpress is a downhiller's dream. You want your saddle to stay put in the event of knocks and a system that is simple to set up - the Burgtec Xpress does just that. Up top, the Cloud saddle is about comfort and performance rather than silly weight saving. Having said that, the carbon rail is a perfect XC race option if you want to go fast while sitting down.
With mudguards, shock upgrade kits, T-shirts and Beanies added to the list, Burgtec are gradually growing. Each new piece Burgtec kit is the product of rider demand. Which Burgtec gear do you want?
