2-½ years in development with every detail carefully considered and meticulously executed, the TOA is the culmination of all the CHAPTER2 frames that have come before it. TOA which means “to be victorious, win” in Maori delivers an all-out, no-compromise carbon fibre race-ready frame platform designed, engineered, and manufactured to the most exacting standards.
Inspired by the TERE’s Performance All-Road DNA and the AO’s versatility, the TOA has all its cables/hoses tucked away from sight and the wind, creating an aerodynamically seamless transition between the MANA Bar and the TOA’s Kamm-Tail chassis.
Sporting a T47 Bottom Bracket for easy maintenance, the aluminium BB Shell works in unison with the high-tensile carbon carefully laid into the BB area to increase stiffness by up to 8% over the TERE. Additionally, the use of a Latex mandrel for the whole front triangle has increased the Headtube stiffness by 34% over the TERE for that out of the saddle and power to the pedals moment.
Other enhancements such as the bundled MANA Bar, Quick-Fit headset spacers, up to 32mm of tire clearance, vibration dampening Seatstays and Seatpost makes for a package that ticks all the right boxes.

The Ordering Experience
About The Brand
CHAPTER2 is a performance bike brand, designed in New Zealand by Mike Pryde. The quest to create something unique follows a road less travelled. At CHAPTER2 it begins with the perfect frame before handing it over to you to put all the pieces in place.
Mike is meticulous with his designs and quality control to ensure that his creations matched his stringent performance and quality standards and this is reflected in the AO, HURU, RERE, TERE & TOA. This is where the story of CHAPTER2 really starts.
