Like the legendary quality of Holdsworth Bicycles, the French origin of the word mistral means “Masterly”. The Holdsworth Mistral is meant to roar across vast distances for days, or weeks at a time. With exploration in its DNA, the Mistral can take you places you’ve only dreamt of.
Built for hours in the saddle, the Mistral is a workhorse meant to traverse ever changing terrain and in all conditions. Beginning with the geometry, a more aggressive road position gives you the ability to maintain higher speeds over other touring frames. Fork and frame drill outs give you the option to attach mudguards and racks as well. Bosses built just for a frame pump and deep drop brake calipers for wider tyre clearance round out this versatile rig.
Constructed using resilient and light Reynolds 531 steel tubing, this frame is assembled by artisan frame builders using the same exacting standards and proven traditions that made the Holdsworth name what it is today. Each hand mitred tube and filed lug come together in a low-temperature brazing process that is individually inspected. The frame is also tastefully finished in an electrifying eggshell green that make this frame hard to miss.
We have equipped this Mistral with everything you need to tackle your next Eroica inspired ride or race. Embarking on an all day, all terrain, effort in the saddle means you need a setup up to the task.
