Show Description

Made for winding rural rides and swift cross-town missions, the Côte finds a smooth balance between touring comfort and efficient function. Its 35mm tires are strong enough to handle gravel roads but also roll well on urban routes. If you want to ride your bike everywhere – the office, a weekend tour, a remote lakeside campsite – but only want one bike, the Côte will happily get you there.
