Show Description

The bike for a crosstown bike route that beats the traffic every time. We’ve teamed an aluminum frame with a carbon fork and handlebars, and added an aluminium steerer to keep strength high, weight low and brass in your pocket. A 2 x 10 groupset, more like one you'd find on a mountain bike, reduces gearing redundancies and feels natural from day one. The X-Glide technology borrowed from SRAM mountain bike components lets you shift crisply up the sprocket or down. And the hydraulic disc brake setup brings you to a shudder-free stop outside any neighbourhood craft brewery.

  • Lightweight, tapered 7000-series aluminum frame.
  • Carbon fibre fork with aluminum steerer and carbon handlebars keep the weight down and the ride smooth.
  • SRAM Via GT components include cranks with X-Glide technology.
  • SRAM Level T hydraulic brakes ensures you'll stop when you need to.
  • SRAM 2 x 10 groupset is developed for urban rides and trekking.
  • Big 700C wheels roll almost effortlessly, and 32mm tires provide excellent adhesion, stability and cornering. The width protects the rims and resists pinch flats.
  • Bikes are covered by MEC's Rocksolid Guarantee and Bike Service Agreement. You can bring your bike to any MEC bike shop for free adjustments and minor maintenance for a year after purchase.
  • MEC bikes are designed in Canada. Everything from the frames to the graphics is developed at the MEC Head Office in Vancouver, BC.
