Jaegher Unveils 3D Printed Ascender Phoenix Road Bike: A Future of 3D Printing in Cycling


Jaegher, a Belgian custom bike builder, has introduced the Ascender Phoenix – a stainless-steel road bike. This bike blends the artisanship of handcrafted steel, 3D-printing, and AI beautifully.

The Ascender Phoenix had its debut at the Velofollies show. It sports a 3D-printed headtube, a ‘tailfin’ seat cluster, and dropouts. These components are individually personalized for every purchaser. The bike’s impressive profile is as a result of merging 3D-printed stainless-steel parts with AI-generated parametric design. This fusion creates a bike with sleek curves that carry echoes of modern carbon frame designs.

With a frame weight of just 1400g, the Ascender Phoenix incorporates eight spherical stainless Columbus XCR steel tubes and four uniquely 3D-printed components. Jaegher uses TIG-welding to curate a frame that beautifully combines the strongest attributes of current road bikes with the resilient ride and durability of stainless steel.

Technologically advanced features include fully integrated internal cable routing for wireless drivetrains, customizable 30-35mm max tire clearance, a T47 threaded bottom bracket, 12mm thru-axles, flat mount disc brakes, and a 27.2mm seatpost. The Ascender Phoenix adheres to proven standards, ensuring compatibility with modern components.

The pricing for the Jaegher FL.X Ascender Phoenix frameset starts at 6950 euros, offering fully custom geometry that includes the stainless steel frame and carbon fork. Various complete custom bike options, such as the Builder’s Choice SRAM Force AXS build, are available, reaching up to 13,590 euros.

Initial frame deliveries are scheduled for the summer of 2024, requiring a 1250 euro deposit to initiate the process. To learn more about their bikes, and place an order if so desired, you can visit the Jaegher website.
