AN AMERICAN MADE HARDTAIL
The American Pale Ale is a super nimble, extremely versatile hardtail. Whether it’s tight technical single track or high speed downhill, the APA can hold its own and then some. Tested on some of the most gnarly terrain the North East has to offer, we’re more than confident in this shred machine.
Made right here in the US using 100% 7075 aluminum tubing, this bike is built to last. We’re so confident in its performance that we offer a lifetime warranty on all of our frames. Buying domestically yields a number of other benefits. By supporting American made products, you’re supporting local jobs, local businesses, and a more ethical and sustainable manufacturing process.
As with all of the bikes in our lineup, the customization possibilities are pretty much endless. Seriously, we did the math and there’s 46,523,913,960,000,000,000,000 possible combinations. Good thing we have Ben here to keep all those straight!
Due to extreme demand, the ship date on a bike ordered today will be July.

I've had the APA GX for about 2 weeks and I have nothing but good things to say about Growler! They answered every question I had and were very personable, which I think is missing in todays world. The American Pale Ale GX is fast, nimble, and rides over the terrain like a full suspension. I can honestly say that its the best hardtail MTN bike that I have ever owned. Nice work Growler!
