WASHBOARD DESCENTS, SKETCHY DIRT, GRAVEL AND ROCKS OF ALL SHAPES AND SIZES. YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU’LL GET ON A GRAVEL RIDE. THIS NEW COMPOSITE GRAVEL MACHINE FEATURES A SUSPENSION FORK AND ENGINEERED COMPLIANCE TO HELP YOU FLOAT THROUGH ALL OF IT WITH SPEED AND CONTROL.
KEY PERFORMANCE FACTORS:
Composite frameset is designed specifically for front suspension. With 40mm of travel, the fork absorbs bumps and impacts so you can ride smoother and faster over rugged gravel and dirt.
Lowered seatstays with smaller diameter tubes absorb road shocks and vibrations. A Contact SL XR D-Fuse handlebar adds more compliance without sacrificing the stiffness needed for cornering, sprinting or climbing.
Adaptable to the terrain:
A flip chip on the rear dropout adjusts the wheelbase: short for quicker handling, or long for improved stability at speed. The long setting also allows for larger diameter tires up to 53mm. You can use the included dropper/suspension seatpost for added capabilities, or switch to a proprietary D-Fuse seatpost or traditional 30.9mm round seatpost.
