The original Hayduke has been known to get plenty of folks out into the wild. Hayduke LVS is our new addition to help get you there with more comfort and more gear.

Staying true to the versatility you have come to know and the durability you have come to depend on, Hayduke LVS can truly do it all and get you even further into the backcountry, and back again on every ride.  

The Hayduke LVS is the Hayduke you have come to know, but with more to love. With 600mm chainstays, the LVS gives a smoother ride, more stable handling for really long rides, and more space to carry a lot of gear.

All Hayduke LVS frames have external cable routing, threaded bottom brackets, and 44mm head tubes for durability and ease of maintenance. The Hayduke LVS also comes with 26 attachment points for adventure accessories, and M6 threaded rack mounts built into the frame for the attachment of Molle Rackwald, our proprietary direct-fit rack.

Hayduke LVS is made from seamless, butted, and cold-shaped 3/2.5 titanium - delivering an enduring and comfortable distance touring hardtail mountain bike.

The LVS has been optimized for a 120mm suspension fork, and has ample tire clearance, fitting up to 2.8" tires.

The versatile Portage Dropout System is now Universal Derailleur Hanger (UDH) Compatible. The system was designed to switch easily between drivetrain types, hub widths, wheel sizes, and chainstay lengths. Set it up how you like, and hit the trail.



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:

Durability

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.

Geometry

With specific geometry to suit the riders needs for each different model, we have designed and developed a quick and responsive ride quality for the new Japhy. Utilizing size specific headtubes and shorter and steeper seat tubes we have given this bike a more playful trailbike feel that will make you want to throw it around the corners and pop off every little bump in the trail.

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.
