V2 Magnesium Tandem
Paketa was one of the pioneer frame builders in the early 2000s to bring back the no-lateral frame design in tandems. With the oversized tubing, the no-lateral design saves a ton of weight over a standard lateral tube design. The clean path between the tubing allows for a direct channel for optimal vibration damping, providing you with the best ride quality available on a tandem. The V2 is light, stiff, and responsive and has proven it's performance in many tandem races around the world.
Because of the innovative “compact open” low-top-tube design, frame sizes become almost irrelevant. Standover height is ample for almost anybody front or rear, and with a 72.5 cm (28.5”) stoker top tube you’ll never hear any complaints of cramped rear quarters. A quality adjustable stoker stem helps to fine tune the fit of the stoker. The V2 is available in a small, medium, large, and extra-large with different length captains top tubes. Captain’s top tubes are customizeable to the 1/2 centimeter.
