We catch up with Dom Mason to talk through the new Resolution2, their classy steel 'go anywhere' frame that's been subtly tweaked to bring it bang up to date...

It's been more of an evolution rather than revolution for Mason to arrive at a new Resolution... and that Resolution in this video is the brand new Resolution2 with Columbus steel tubing, a Sram Red eTap groupset, Hunt wheels and Deda finishing kit.

Review: Mason Resolution 105 Hydro

The bike in the video had actually just been freshly built for a customer at Mason's Brighton HQ. Like their Definition aluminium frame the Resolution has now got 12mm thru-axles and flat mount disc calipers front and rear for the new version, for which Mason worked painstakingly with Bear Frame Supplies to make a rear dropout that would work for this specific bike. Many 3D printed prototypes later Mason and Bear arrived at a solution, and you can see the quality of the work in the video.

As with all Mason frames the Resolution2 is built up in a small Italian factory, and as Dom says in the video, the bike is now pretty much everything he envisioned it would be when Mason was founded in 2014; where do they go from here, we wonder? 

We'll be looking to test the Resolution2 soon, so keep your eyes peeled for a full review in the coming months...

After cobbling together a few hundred quid during his student days off the back of a hard winter selling hats (long story), Jack bought his first road bike at the age of 20 and has been hooked ever since.  He joined road.cc in 2017, having previously worked for 220 Triathlon magazine. Jack's preferred events are time trials, sportives, triathlons and pogo sticking (the latter being another long story), and on Sunday afternoons he can often be found on an M5 service station indulging in his favourite post-race meal of 20 chicken nuggets, a sausage roll, caramel shortbread and a large strawberry milkshake.
