We upped the ante with Sage’s award-winning road machine, the Skyline, by setting it up to be the All-Road/ All-Round Road Race bike it was always destined to be. “Precise,” “agile,” “terrific craftsmanship” and “titanium rocket” are the phrases of choice from professional testers. But this isn’t just a bike for the cycling media. It’s a sleek and sexy titanium space ship built to inspire the masses.
With a design that blends refined simplicity and outright performance, the Skyline occupies an enviable niche in the cycling world. It climbs mountains as confidently as it rips sinuous descents, and it launches snappy attacks without compromising comfort on all-day adventures. It’s a looker in the showroom that shines even brighter out on the road.
Named after the serpentine Skyline Boulevard that winds along the spine of the West Hills in Portland, Oregon, the bike is built for speed and stability, whether railing through corners or sprinting out of the saddle. It reimagines traditional construction with touches of refinement, blending the class of the past with the performance of the future. The thin-profile seat stays nod to the traditional race bike, yet the frame incorporates high-tech touches–like flat mount disc brakes, a 1.75” down tube, 3/2.5 titanium alloy, compact frame design, an oversized head tube, and even frame fender mounts for winter training. Combined together, these elements give rise to the perfect modern take of a high-performance road race bike.
The finer details, like 3D printed titanium dropouts, are deliberate selections based on a blend of strength and stability. Full internal routing options available so that you can hide ALL of your cables and wires for the ultimate in sleek design aesthetics. The lusty shimmer of raw titanium finishes off the Skyline’s show-stopping look. It’s the stuff of dreams for the discerning cyclist. It wows. It rips. It inspires.

Custom 3D printed titanium dropouts and chainstay yoke options are now available on all Sage bicycles. Our dropouts are SRAM Transmission/ T-Type compatible so your bike is future proofed whether you are riding road, gravel, or MTB. The chainstay yokes are designed for max tire clearance and minimal chain stay lengths to provide better acceleration and snap out of the corners. 3D printed parts are lighter and stronger than standard welded parts due to the unique nature of the printing and heat treating process. Our parts are specifically designed to meet the rigors and demands for performance oriented bikes.
Flat Mount Disc Brakes
Clearance for up to 32mm tires
Internally routed brake lines, Di2 wires, and mechanical drivetrains are now standard options on Sage frames. External brake and mechanical shift lines options are still available if requested. Please let us know in advance.
Ovalized and shaped tubing for race ready performance
Borrowed from the mountain bike realm, the oversized 44-millimeter head tube affords phenomenal front-end stiffness and precision on the road. Press-in headset cups provide a secure interface between frame and cockpit, and the large diameter opening accepts a wide range of steerer tubes, from 1?-inch straight to 1?–1½-inch tapered and every combination between.
Short chainstays provide snappy acceleration
Fender mounts for winter training miles
At Sage, 3/2.5 titanium is the magic material. The smooth riding alloy blends stiffness, durability and weight for the ultimate frame tubing. Titanium has a superior strength-to-weight ratio compared with steel and aluminum, and the fatigue tolerance far surpasses the other materials. Don’t fret long rain rides or brackish water crossings—3/2.5 titanium resists rust and corrosion better than any other metal tubing.
All Sage frames come with our Blasted Finish option as a base choice. You can choose either a raw titanium finish with blasted graphics, or a blasted finish with raw graphics. The unique look of titanium metal lends itself to the finish choices listed here. No worries about decals getting scuffed or the graphics fading over time. These finish choices will be for the lifetime of the bike. We also offer Cerakote, Anodize, and Wet Paint options for those clients that want to add some color and unique finishes and touches to their bikes.
Classic and classy yet updated for the modern era, the T47 bottom bracket reigns supreme over press-fit alternatives. The strong interface between bottom bracket cups and the frame eliminates creaks and maintains alignment that won’t slip or wobble over time. Additionally, installation, removal and service of the design are simply superior. No punching or pressing required. Just thread it, grease it, shred it. Repeat.
