Phytoncide - The Ultimate Trail Hardtail


Simplicity. Efficience. Speed. Predictability.

The Story

Phytoncide generally refers to the aroma of the forest. Plants and trees emit these smells which have been linked to many health benefits including lowered blood pressure, improved immunity and better concentration. This bike won’t give you things but it will take you to the places that will. This is the hardtail that you ride every day on your favorite trails, load up for big weekend rides and take on that bikepacking trip you have planned this summer. You can do it all on one trusty bike that will last you a long time. Distilled from the process of designing hundreds of hardtails, this is the bike you really want.

Design Philosophy

At Sklar Bikes a custom hard tail mountain bike is all about playful yet aggressive geometry. Something you can pedal all day, and holds nothing back on the descents. Whether it has plus-sized three inch tires, or skinny race slicks, we will work to develop an incredibly fun ride that truly allows you to ride how you want.
