Billed as an all-mountain/enduro frame, the TitanX is one of only two chiner frames that fit in that demographic. The other frame being the “098“.
Made from T700 and T800 this frame sports the same grade of carbon found in most other chiner frames, and Carbonality reports that weight should come in right about 1750 grams. A very respectable weight for a full-suspension 29er frame.
Only one bottom bracket type available though (BSA) so if you were looking for a BB30 carbon frame, you may want to keep looking. The “098” frame linked above is available in multiple bottom bracket types.
That said, the 70.2 degree head tube angle may not be slack enough for those that like a 67-68 degree head tube angle.
This frame has been out for a couple of years now and long-term reliability seems to be good. Although, this being a frame only sold by one vendor, means that it hasn’t quite seen the popularity of some of the other full suspension frames and less of these frames have been rider tested and reported on.
Only being sold by one seller isn’t the only reason you see less of these frames being used for builds – the price on it is $879.00 which is $200-$300 more than the other available chiner frames.
All in all, the TitanX looks to be a very nice, lightweight frame with quality manufacturing and attention to detail. Whether or not it’s worth the extra money over it’s competitors isn’t clear.
