Jackal is an opportunistic scavenger of man-made terrain

The Jackal is a no BS dirt jump, pump track, and urban assault weapon bike. We sell it as a frame-only and it runs on old-timey 26-inch wheels. Overbuilt to last forever, these frames will take more abuse than you can dish out, yet still weigh in at under 5lbs.  

A clever asymmetrical yoke permits the use of rock solid and super short 15.2-inch chainstays. And for those who want to take their anarchy further afield, the unique sliding rear dropouts allow for a geared as well as single speed set-up.


  • 26" wheels
