The term “poignard” refers to a small thrusting dagger. Its tapered shape make it quick, light and effective.

The Winter Poignard reflects these qualities with its thin, light weight frame and highly customized dagger like fork. Designed for solo efforts and climbs, the frame is made from a blend of S3 and Life tubes. The Poignard is cleanly fillet brazed with subtle detailing at the head tube rings and seat tube laminate. The bicycle is built with a select group of components including Cane Creek 110 headset, Winter stem, carbon tubulars on custom Yobi hubs and Ciamillo Micro brakes. The finish is provided by Custom Powderworks.
