It’s right for you if… Unlike the pure roadie who measures watts and weighs out meals, you favor epic all-road adventures that probably end with a beer and a burrito. But that doesn’t mean you’ll compromise on performance. You expect to get a lot for your hard-earned dollar, including quality, versatility, durability, and a ridiculous amount of fun.
The tech you get A 300 Series Alpha Aluminum frame with massive tire clearance and adjustable Stranglehold dropouts that make it easy to fine-tune your geometry or run singlespeed, a carbon fork, 12mm thru axles, an 11-speed Shimano 105 drivetrain, wide-range 11-34 cassette that’s great for climbing, fender and rack mounts, flat mount hydraulic disc brakes for all-weather stopping power, and 700×40 Bontrager GR1 tires for added stability and traction.
