Exploration of Being

Exploration lives in all of us. A basic human need that’s pushed us forward long before the invention of the wheel. And in a world where every corner has been seemingly documented, posted & shared – we still have an innate desire to find out what’s out there for ourselves.

It's here, somewhere far beyond the end of the pavement, where enlightenment happens. Where your phone stopped working hours ago, shortcuts turn into dead ends, and the only reference point is the horizon line beckoning you over that next hill.

This trip is about the lifelong pursuit to uncover something new – about your environment, your limits, and ultimately yourself.

      2024 Gravel Bike of the Year

      "I think I’m now in love with aluminum gravel race bikes." — Bicycling Magazine

      Modern aesthetic

      A gently sloping top tube and dropped seat stays bring aluminum design into the 21st century.

      Aero design

      Our custom kammtail downtube, one-piece carbon cockpit, fully integrated cables make it slippery where it matters.

      Snappy ride

      Premium 7005 double-butted aluminum tubing and curved seatstays give a little flex and spring while being more durable than carbon and 100% recyclable.

      Future proof

      Electronic 2X and Mechanical 1X compatible, threaded T47 bb, a round 31.6mm seatpost, and SRAM UDH means easy maintenance and no proprietary parts to limit your options.

      Perfect fit

      8 sizes fit you better, from ~5'0" to ~6'7"
