Doppo Locust – Off-Road Tourer
The newly named “Grasshopper with Wings.”
The naming of ‘Locust’ came from the icon with prehistoric wings that swarms and fills our grasslands, turning them into wastelands.
All of the singletrack paths that we love are a delicate part of nature, and if you tread on them without discretion, they will quickly turn to nothing but wasteland. It’s certainly fun to ride on rough terrain, but what if all of nature becomes a wasteland? It won’t be so fun anymore.
There are steep mountains, forests with towering trees, and gullies with flowing streams. Sometimes there are craggy wastelands, and sometimes there are deserts covered in sand as far as the eye can see. Off-road riding evokes a ton of imagery and exposes us to so many interesting environments.
We rebranded the Doppo MTB as ‘Locust’ to commit to our self-restraint, so as not to destroy such delicate environments, but also to symbolize the insect’s fearlessness for thriving in unexplored areas.
Doppo ‘Locust’ is a model that defines and restructures many of the demands of current touring bike users on the ‘Doppo MTB’, and expands the size range to allow more cyclists to ride it.
Why did we change the name from ‘Doppo MTB’ to ‘Doppo Locust’? The specifications of modern “M-T-Bs” are an ever-moving target and have become too segmented and specialized. There seems to be new models appearing one after another that make us feel a little tired and confused- wondering what this bike is actually for.
We don’t want the models in the Doppo series to have names that create a segment and ask that you- the rider feel that their purpose is limited. Doppo is manufactured with the hope that it will be a competent tool for charting your own path without being hindered by questioning your equipment. The Doppo Locust is an ideal choice for confident and calculated off-road riding.
Efficient at climbing the mountainside as well as stable coming back down, the capacity for wide footprint rubber opens up new realms for exploration. Locust allows you to feel the elegant breath of nature particularly strongly.
