The Needle is all about balance. In Crit racing you need a bike that has enough stiffness to ensure it reacts to your every input, but with enough ‘give’ to absorb the rougher surfaces of a typical Crit circuit.
From the moment the Needle was launched it caught the eye of track and criterium riders due to its steel, rather than alloy frame. The Reynolds 725 tube-set is double butted and heat-treated for a higher strength to weight ratio.
The Script has been in the Bombtrack line from day one. As a cornerstone of the range it has always been a very special model for us. Now in its 4th generation the Script takes on a more track focused geometry.
