The Holland Jet travel option is available on all Titanium or Exogrid frames, in both rim or disc brake, road or gravel.
Holland Titanium Jet Gravel Bicycle
The Holland Jet maintains all the torsional stiffness of our standard Ti and Exogrid frames, while adding a mere 90g to the frame weight.
The Jet will be your everyday bike that can journey anywhere in the world with you as a standard airline checked bag.
Take your dream bike on your dream vacation.
Ritchey’s Breakaway design has been
proven over more than a decade,
and allows for an aesthetically appealing
and lightweight travel frame. Naturally it
caught our attention.
In cooperation with Ritchey and
Paragon Machine Works, Holland
Cycles developed the Jet, a
modified breakaway design for
use in oversized titanium tube sets.
The concept behind the Holland Jet is the same as the one behind the Ritchey Break-Away: the segmented down tube connects just ahead of the bottom bracket with a pair of flanges and a clamp, while the seat cluster is cut at an angle and held together with the seat post and dual binder bolts.

The segmented down tube connects just ahead of the bottom bracket with a pair of flanges and a clamp, while the seat cluster is cut at an angle and held together with the seat post and dual binder bolts.
Appropriately named, our rear brake cable doesn’t just route internally, it brings its own housing, laying inside a ¼” interior titanium brake tube to eliminate any junctions that could allow rust and creating a system with no cable housing interruption. Replacing the brake cable is as easy as sliding it into the brake tube – it simply pops out the other end.
Seat Post Protection
Due to the natural elasticity of titanium, reaming out the inner portion of a tube does not always produce a round smooth surface. Holland Cycles’ single-point boring, while time-intensive, insures the inner surfaces of your seat collar junction are smooth and perfectly round, protecting your carbon seat post from point loading that can cause it to crack.
Stiff Head Tube
Holland Cycles internally bores the head tube, rather than using the conventional process of turning the outside of the tube. This difficult step produces ~10% more stiffness for the same wall thickness and weight of titanium.
Efficient Rear Dropout
Our semi-vertical rear dropout lets the wheel roll away from the derailleur. But we also bevel the dropout openings to act like shoehorns, opening the wheel skewer to help guide the axle back up into place and making wheel changes lightning fast, simple and pain-free.
Lean Seat Tube
We create a 2” seat collar, a thicker section of tubing that is press fit and welded into the top of the seat tube. This critical area is the junction of a number of welds and is subjected to significant and varying stresses during the manufacturing process as well as while riding. The seat collar optimizes strength and weight by providing reinforcement where it is needed without increasing the thickness of the overall seat tube.
Badge of Honor
The head tube badge on your Holland ExoGrid® epitomizes the craftsmanship of Holland Cycles. Each badge is made by hand from the same titanium and carbon materials used on an ExoGrid® and then bonded onto your frame.
