ExoGrid Technology

A pioneer in handmade titanium bicycles, Dean Bikes also works with carbon fiber via ExoGrid technology, a process that combines the lightweight and stiffness of carbon fiber with the strength and compliance of titanium. To build an ExoGrid frame, such as the Vader ExoGrid pictured here, titanium tubes are laser cut and infused with carbon fiber, creating a seamless look and feel.

Using titanium at key junctures, including the bottom bracket, seat cluster, head tube, and dropouts, and carbon fiber in the top tube, down tube, seat stays, and fork, Dean creates a bicycle that is unlike any other in its class, giving riders the best of both worlds in a single, distinctive product.  ExoGrid technology is available on all of Dean's custom built bikes, including Mountain, Gravel, Travel and Road.
