A sturdy, comfortable frame

We have designed this triple-butted aluminium frame for maximum durability, sturdiness and comfort. More than 500,000 km of testing under its belt on all continents and in all weather conditions. Internal cable routing. 33 mounts on the frame and fork to attach all your accessories and pannier racks. Compatible with all pannier racks. Removable rear derailleur hanger.
