Show Description

This trusty bike has a stability-focused steel frame for a smooth ride and flickable responsiveness. Light enough to hang in on group rides, it's still tough enough for the rigours of cyclocross and bikepacking. The tire clearance and a low overall weight makes it a strong contender for bicycle touring. The carbon fork uses a 12mm thru-axle instead of a standard QR set up, to reduce flex under hard braking, cornering and accelerating. To keep you riding longer, we've kitted this bike with a comfortable Fabric Shallow Sport saddle. Solid SRAM Rival 1x groupset with hydraulic brakes shifts smoothly and gives you nuanced, powerful braking, and a stiff Alex Boondocks 5 wheelset grounds it with responsive handling and flex-free performance.

  • Columbus Cromor steel frame with lowered bottom bracket for stable handling.
  • Carbon fibre fork with aluminum steerer lower the weight of the bike while improving comfort.
  • Front fork designed for use with 12mm thru axles.
  • Frame is equipped with eyelets for fenders, a rear rack, and 3 bottle cages for those long adventures.
  • Frame and fork clearance of 60mm allows for tires that measures up to 50mm in width.
  • SRAM Rival 1x gruppo yields fast shifts and solid braking in a lightweight package.
  • Hydraulic disc brakes provide outstanding power and modulation regardless of weather.
  • SRAM Centerline 160mm and 140mm rotors in the front and rear respectively provide plenty of stopping power.
  • SRAM Rival crank with a 42T chainring and huge 11-42T cassette means a gear range ready for every kind of ride.
  • 700c Alex Boondocks 5 wheels are tubeless ready and designed for the rigours of gravel grinds and daily commutes.
  • Hubs are using sealed cartridge bearings for smoothness and durability.
  • FSA Adventure bars features a 12° flare for a comfortable and stable position on rough roads.
  • Donnelly X'Plor CDG tires are 36mm wide to soak up road vibration.
  • MEC carbon fibre post soaks up vibration for a comfortable ride.
  • Fabric Scoop Shallow Sport saddle helps keep the ride comfortable on long days.
