Propain Tyee Carbon Now Available In XL Size

by 0

If you’re in the Big Friendly Giant category of human, then you may have been disappointed that the Propain Tyee wasn’t available in an XL. But weep no more our super-sized friend, for Propain has heard your cries and is releasing the Tyee Carbon and Tyee AM Carbon in new XL sizes.

Carbon for the giants.

Until now, larger riders had to opt for the Aluminium version as the largest available frame size for the Carbon Tyee was large. Since Propain received many requests for an even larger option they are now releasing both the Enduro and the All Mountain versions of the Carbon Tyee in extra large.

Propain has chosen a relatively small frame height of 490mm for their XL size, making it not only an option for tall riders but also for the racer who values the stability of the increased wheelbase. In times of long travel dropper posts the reduced frame height is no disadvantage for tall riders.

All the numbers

Propain claims that as well as having the perfect geometry for larger riders, they’ve paid attention to a smooth design to make sure the XL bike doesn’t look out of proportion.

The new Tyee Carbon XL frame can be ordered now, in both the Enduro and the All Mountain version, each in either three predefined configurations, as a completely customisable ‘project free’ or as a frameset only. Prizes for the complete bike start at €3,199, and the frameset at €2099. All details can be found at

Hannah came to Singletrack having decided there must be more to life than meetings. Having worked in policy and project management roles at the Scottish Parliament and in local government, Hannah had organisational skills that SIngletrack needed. She also likes bikes, and likes to write.

Hannah likes all bikes, but especially unusual ones. If it’s a bit odd, or a bit niche, or made of metal, she’s probably going to get excited. If it gets her down some steep stuff, all the better. She’ll give most things a go once, she tries not to say no to anything on a bike, unless she really thinks it’s going to hurt. She’s pretty good with steri-strips.

More than bikes, Hannah likes what bikes do. She thinks that they link people and places; that cycling creates a connection between us and our environment; bikes create communities; deliver freedom; bring joy; and improve fitness. They're environmentally friendly and create friendly environments.

Hannah tries to write about all these things in the hope that others might discover the joy of bikes too.
