We like to name our bikes after iconic defenders of wild spaces and the Smokey Ti is no exception. We like to imagine that if that legendary bear from our youth rode a mountain bike, this would be the one. The Smokey is longer, lower, and slacker than any bike we have ever made and it is the perfect tool for exploration when the backcountry gets rowdy.


The Smokey Ti may be the most aggressive frame we have ever made, but it is still an Esker. Prioritizing durability and ease of maintenance, the Smokey Ti has external cable routing, threaded bottom bracket and a 44mm head tube. The Smokey boasts four different water bottle and accessory mounting positions, including a 3-pack mount on the downtube for when you need a little extra carrying capacity.

The Smokey Ti is crafted from seamless, butted, and cold-shaped 3/2.5 titanium - delivering a durable yet comfortable all-mountain hardtail

Optimized for a 160mm suspension fork, the frame has ample tire clearance, fitting up to 2.6" tires.

The versatile Portage Dropout System is now Universal Derailleur Hanger (UDH) compatible. This system is designed to switch easily between geared or singlespeed drivetrain types. While the adjustable chainstay lengths allow you to perfectly tune your ride feel.

Built for the Back Country
We here at Esker enjoy long rides into the wild spaces and are proud to say our bikes are truly Built for the Backcountry. That means they are designed and built on three tenets:


We build our titanium hardtails from seamless, double-butted 3/2.5 Titanium for the utmost in durability.
This tubeset provides a greater strength to weight ratio than other Titanium frames on the market, engineered specifically for its application. Titanium is corrosion-proof, so you can ride through any weather, for life.


With specific geometry to suit the riders needs for each different model, we have designed and developed a quick and responsive ride quality for all Esker models. Our geometries are refined, stable, and comfortable to provide a bike that always feels right at home

Ride Quality

Titanium is legendary for an almost mystically smooth, fatigue-reducing ride quality. The custom drawn, seamless, and butted tubeset is tuned to each size, which gives it more compliance and is lighter weight while also increasing torsional rigidity and overall strength.
