Aomori is a place in Japan that holds real meaning to Sir Chris. Not only is it the place where he won his first keirin race, but it was also while exploring the local roads on his road bike that he decided he wanted to one day develop his own range of bikes.
The Aomori is a brand new addition to the HOY range. Like the disc-equipped Alto Irpavi, the Aomori benefits from a lightweight aluminium frame which heavily tapers towards the back end resulting in a more compliant, comfortable ride – perfect for long days in the saddle. The mainframe is tuned to each frame size to provide the right balance of stiffness and ride feel, to suit strong riders like Chris as well as smaller, lighter riders. However, the oversize head tube ensures agile and predictable cornering. The bike’s clean looks are helped by UK specific internal cable routing and is finished with HOY’s signature track bands.
