Moots unveils new all-surfaces Vamoots RCS

Published January 29, 2021

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, Colo. (BRAIN) — Titanium manufacturer Moots announced the release of the Vamoots RCS road bike, the second new model launch in the last two years.

The Vamoots RCS, or Routt County Special, is suited to cover a mix of ever-changing surfaces: smooth pavement, rougher chip-seal, and dirt roads that are common road fare in Routt County, the home of Moots.

The Vamoots RCS can fit high-volume tires, up to 35mm, and newly designed fastback seat stays and cold-worked chainstays perform in tandem in providing the frame's clearance. In addition, a newly designed carbon fork accommodates wider tires as well.

The frame is composed of Moots' double-butted RSL tubeset, with butting specified to each size frame for strength and ride quality. The tubes are mitered to allow for full-tack welding before being finished with a second-pass 6/4 titanium alloy weld for added durability and "stack-of-dimes" appearance. The frame also features a newly designed 3D printed dropout for precise rear axle and disc brake alignment.

This year marks Moots' 40th anniversary, and every Vamoots RCS, as well as any other frame model produced this year, will have a special-edition headbadge commemorating the brand's history. For more information, go to
