THE FOLLOWING CALCULATION WILL HELP YOU FIND THE RIGHT BIKE FRAME SIZE AND SADDLE HEIGHT:

Road/Gravel Inside leg x 0,66 = Frame size in cm
MTB Size S: 155 – 172 cm body height
Size M: 173 – 182 cm body height
Size L: 183 – 192 cm body height
Size XL: >192 cm body height
Fitness
or
Inside leg x 0,61 = Frame size in cm
Inside leg x 0,24 = Frame size in inches
Hybrid/Touring
or
Inside leg x 0,61 = Frame size in cm
Inside leg x 0,24 = Frame size in inches
Inside leg x 0,885 = Saddle height on all bikes

If you are exactly between two sizes, you'll have the choice: Choose the smaller frame if you prefer a "racing position" and the bigger frame if you prefer a more comfortable "touring position".

See our video step-by-step instructions on how to determine your frame size. We'll explain you how to easily measure shoulder width, inside leg length and arm length yourself.

BACKROAD-AL-Apex-1x11_1-Kurbel

Reliable gravel groupset with a drivetrain designed for MTB

The Apex 1 groupset is SRAM's entry-level group for gravel enthusiasts. It is equipped with popular technological features from SRAM. This gravel bike is furnished with a 1-speed drive system consisting of an 11-42 cassette and a 42 chainring. So you’ll get 1x11 gears in larger steps – ideal for getting in the flow while off-roading or riding local trails.

BACKROAD-AL-Apex-1x11_2-Schaltung

Wide wheels and gravel tyres

This bike is equipped with robust, lightweight ROSE G TWENTYFIVE gravel wheels, as well as with high-quality Newman hubs and lightweight, stable Sapim spokes. With their wider inner rim width of 25 mm, they increase the contact area of the WTB gravel tyres and thus provide more grip on rough terrain. The tyre profile has sturdy shoulder lugs – for ideal off-road qualities.

BACKROAD-AL-Apex-1x11_3-Lenker

Gravel handlebars for off-road rides

This gravel handlebar is specially designed for more demanding terrain or trail sections. It has a larger flare and the lower handlebar bends are anatomically-shaped, resulting in more control and comfort on rough surfaces. You’ll also be more comfortable when off-roading thanks to the longer brake lever, grip width adjustment and ergonomic shape of the SRAM Apex 1.

BACKROAD AL APEX 1X11

Colour: 
roasted olive
Size:
59cm
My experience with Rose bikes has been very bad. I bet on buying a Rose gravel with the full expectation that I was investing in the best quality and attention. And this, despite the fact that I knew that I would have to wait for my bike for months due to stock problems.
After 5 months of waiting, my Backroad AL bike arrived with noticeable quality issues that are hard to miss. First, after tightening, the front wheel is tilted >5mm to the side at the fork (not dishing but the fork). Second, the grip tape on the left side of the handlebar arrived damaged at the tip.
I am totally disappointed with the quality of Rose bikes. Again, these flaws are notable which indicates that Rose's bar of quality is crap. I regret having bought by this brand.

Ich weiß nicht, ob es daran liegt, dass es das erste Gravelbike in dieser Qualitätsklasse ist, aber ich liebe es. Ich komme eher aus dem Bereich Enduro/Freeride MTB und wäre da nie bei Rose gelandet, aber dieses Gravelbike hat sich innerhalb weniger Wochen zum meist gefahrenen Modell meines Fuhrparks entwickelt, einfach weil es das Beste zweier Welten kombiniert. Klar mache ich damit keine Sprünge wie mit dem Freeride Downhillbike, aber ich nehme schon auch mal ein paar Trails mit dem Gravelbike mit und bin im Gelände unterwegs und trotzdem auf der Straße und auf Feldwegen sehr schnell.

Super Rad.
Aber leider nach 500 Knacken im Tretlager, ausgebaut, vermutlich falsch eingepresst, eine Seite in die Hülse gepresst. Nach dem ich dieses gewechselt habe keine Probleme mehr bin super Happy 😊

Das Fahrrad macht Spaß - wenn es denn fährt !!!
7 Wochen konnte ich wegen der Auswechselung der Sattelstütze in der Hauptsaison nicht fahren. Weiterhin bisher drei Mal ein platter Reifen beim Fahren durch Schotter (tatsächlich sehr traurig bei einem 2000 € teurem Gravel- (=Schotter !!!) Bike.
Rahmen = Top
Service = Top
Reifen = ein Albtraum !!!

Ich bin sehr zufrieden mit dem Rad und der Kommunikation mit Rose. Nach der ersten Fahrt merkte ich, daß die Schaltung und Bremsen nicht korrekt eingestellt waren. Die Fahrradwerkstatt vor Ort hat die Korrekturen vorgenommen, die Rechnung habe ich an Rose weiter gereicht, die mir den Betrag dann überwiesen haben. Anschließend gab es einen Sicherheitsrückruf für die Sattelstütze. Dieser wurde zunächst durch Rose kommuniziert und anschließend eine neue Sattelstütze im Austausch plus Gutschein geschickt.

Absolument conquis !
Je cherchais un vélo pour le vélotaf et ce backroad est une merveille pour mon utilisation au quotidien. Ce petit bijou est vif et polyvalent, en monoplateau, c'est un régal de facilité à l'usage.
En plus, la qualité de fabrication est vraiment excellent, les soudures sont lissées, on dirait presque un cadre en carbone !

Schönes Bike! Doch die Plastikstopfen in den Gewindelöchern sind der größte Müll!!! Mir ist einer abgebrochen und es half nur noch aufbohren! Es gibt wesentlich elegantere Lösungen! Wirklich schlecht gemacht!

Dazu sind die Bremsen sehr schlecht voreingestellt und die Verpackung lässt auch viel zu wünschen übrig. Bei meinem Karton war der mittlere untere Plastikverschluss weg und sie schaute die Kurbel unten heraus. Danke für die Kratzer!

Category 2

This category applies to bicycles and e-bikes* that meet the conditions of category 1 and are ridden on normal roads as well as in category 2 on unpaved roads and gravel paths with moderate inclines and descents. The tyres are in constant contact with the ground at average speed and they are only occasionally ridden over steps and drops of less than 15 cm. These conditions can lead to contact with uneven terrain and the tyre repeatedly losing contact with the ground. The intended use is, for example, recreational riding. You don’t require any special riding skills.

Average speed 15 to 25 km/h

Height of steps and drops: < 15 cm

*E-Bikes = 250W 25km/h
