One step up from the Cult Gateway comes the Control. Finished in bold red with all black parts (shown) or black and purple, it definitely has good looks from afar, but come closer and you’ll see what matters.
There are several things we really like about this bike. Up front, it’s dialled – 4-piece bars, Cult Salvation V3 top load stem, Cult-branded toptube gusset and the Sean Ricany signature grips. With all parts in black, it seems like a sleek machine.
“As a first bike, the Cult Control has a hell of a lot to offer.”
Getting into the deeper qualities, while this frame isn’t full chromoly construction, it does feature heat treated 3-piece cranks and sealed bearings all round. That should be more than enough spec for the riders this bike is aimed for.
