Adrenaline Race Team logoIn 2007, Adrenaline assembled one of the country's strongest “elite” mountain bike racing teams. With 15 cross-country racers and 5 ultra-endurance athletes, Adrenaline Race Team competes in various cross-country, 24-hour, ultra-endurance and MTB stage Races across Arizona, the rest of the U.S., and Mexico.

Team Founder, Darrin Austin, and Team Captain, Darrin Permentor, came together with one vision: build a team of close friends into the most organized and successful mountain bike team in the nation.  As Austin put it,  "The team created a huge buzz this year, and not just because we won races. We are a team of close friends and very passionate about riding, training and working together as a team." The bond within the team is widely recognized and has become the foundation for Adrenaline’s success.  

As the current Arizona State Champions,  Adrenaline spent their 2008 race season climbing the podium a total of 62 times, with 4 riders claiming individual state championships.

Adrenaline Teams Up with Titus

Arizona's own world-renowned local bike maker, Titus, has joined forces with Arizona's reigning champions, Team Adrenaline. It's quite an honor to be sponsored by such a powerful brand and a long-running force in cycling, and we are very excited about this great opportunity to take our racing to the next level.

For those of you who are new to mountain biking, or who may have spent the last decade in a cave, here's a quick recap: Titus is the bomb!

Titus SuspensionFirst of all, let's talk suspension. The Horst-link Suspension used on Titus frames is progressive over its entire range of motion, regardless of actual travel length. Leverage ratios are higher at the beginning of the stroke to give the rear wheel more leverage against the shock. This makes the shock more supple over small bumps by assisting the linkage in overcoming initial static friction and breakaway force. It also allows the rider to settle into the designated sag point of the travel. At the end of the shock stroke, the leverage ratio decreases, giving the rear wheel less leverage against the shock. This controls larger impacts and prevents harsh bottoming. All of this equates to more shock absorption and less loss of power on the climbs.

Levels of refinement only available through Titus. Since Titus licensed this sought-after technology over 6 years ago, their engineers have experimented, refined, and enhanced every dynamic of the patented four-bar linkage. Thanks to all that hard work, today Titus bikes are the finest performing full-suspension bikes on the planet – as confirmed by a long list of magazine technical editors.

Alloys and Craftsmanship. Another reason that Titus is the best is their manufacturing process. Whether it be aluminum, U.S. aerospace grade titanium tubing, carbon fiber, or Titus's advanced Exogrid and Isogrid technology, Titus carefully, meticulously crafts each frame to exact specifications and the highest standards. Take a photographic tour of their Tempe, Arizona facility to see what we mean by that.

Handling. In all honesty, we choose our bikes based on the way they handle and the way they feel. The bottom line is that we just get faster lap times, climb better, and maneuver technical downhills better on Titus bikes. If you're located here in Arizona, we recommend you head down to Bicycle Showcase in Scottsdale and take a Titus for a test drive. You will not be disappointed!

P.S. Our favorite race bike is the Titus Fireline 29er

Many racers are convinced that nothing rolls more efficiently over the desert trails of Arizona than 29" wheels on a hardtail frame. With options for titanium or the titanium/carbon fiber Exogrid, Titus has achieved a work of art in the Fireline. So take a close look right here because you won't see it again until the podium!
