We have taken the Vassago VerHauen to the next level for the newest iteration and it is by far the best! We have returned to our roots with a 100% made in the USA steel frame built for ripping up and down the trails. For the newest version we have moved production in-house - allowing us to make ongoing changes and improvements, but more importantly increasing the quality and bad-assness of the frames!
All materials are the best of the best USA produced steel and stainless steel. The Vari-Wall THERMLX tubeset is completely made in the USA as is all the Paragon Machine works parts. Top notch, high end steel parts that are typically only seen on $2500+ custom steel frames.

The VerHauen is constantly being refined from generation to generation - and this version is no exception. The frame straddles the line between full on XC race bike and "Enduro-bro" shredder. The VerHauen climbs as well as it descends making all day adventures super fun. The versatility of the frame allows you to build it up how you want... rigid, singlespeed, geared, etc.
