The new BACKROAD
The gravel bike for daily grinds and your next unpaved adventure
The BACKROAD as a gravel bike
As the name suggests, a gravel bike is perfectly suited for riding on gravel and cobblestone or for tackling paved field, forest and meadow paths. It allows you to ride everywhere a classic road bike would have its difficulties. Therefore, the BACKROAD GRAVEL is the best weapon for thrill seekers looking for off-road adventures. However, when equipped with mudguards, lights and a rear rack, it is also a great choice for commuters. The biggest difference to the cyclocross model is the choice of tyres. The BACKROAD features the 38 mm wide G-ONE Allround Evo tyres by Schwalbe, impressing with extremely low rolling resistance and a classic Skin look. Another special characteristic of the gravel bike is ist compatibility with a maximum tyre width of 42 mm – for extra comfort. The combination with lightweight, robust ROSE Thirty Disc wheels promises speed and comfort on any gravel path. The ROSE RC-170 Flex carbon seat post skilfully absorbs unpleasant shocks; the Ritchey WCS Evomax bar provides freedom of forearm movement and greater leverage when in the drops. The BACKROAD is available with different groupsets. Shimano Ultegra and Ultegra Di2, SRAM Force or Shimano 105 – the choice is yours!
