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.

Wide wheels and gravel tyres

This bike has robust, lightweight ROSE G25 gravel wheels, equipped 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 Continental gravel tyre and thus provide more grip on rough terrain. The tyre profile has sturdy shoulder lugs – for ideal off-road qualities.

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
