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.

Lightweight carbon wheels for gravel use

With their elegant mirror finish and a slim 1500 g on the scales, the Campagnolo Levante carbon wheels are a real feast for the eyes and packed with sophisticated details. With an inner rim width of 25 mm, they are also specially optimised for gravel use. Light, stiff, reliable and, thanks to the fast Terra Speed 40 mm tyres from Continental, a weapon on both gravel and asphalt.

Road bike handlebar with long-distance qualities

The Ritchey Butano drop bar handlebar offers numerous grip positions and puts you in an aerodynamic position, just like on a road bike. The shorter drop and wide handlebar ends, on the other hand, ensure more control off-road and a more back-friendly posture on long distances. The ergonomically shaped shift/brake levers of the Ekar group also contribute to this.

Description

The BACKROAD EKAR 1x13 is a fast all-rounder with racing genes that exudes the gravel spirit with every single carbon fibre.

With the mechanical 1x13 drivetrain, the built-in Campagnolo Ekar groupset manages to combine fine gear steps and a wide range with the shifting comfort of a single speed crank like no other. In addition to the frame and fork, the seat post, crank and wheels are also made of carbon. The latter were specially designed by Campagnolo for gravel use and are fitted with the fast and lightweight Continental Terra Speed tyres in 40 mm width.

The bottom line for the BACKROAD Ekar is not only a record-breaking 8.2 kg, but also optimum stiffness values and damping properties. The best conditions for long days with plenty of kilometres.


More long distance | Endurance

Flex is fun: The deep cut-out in the seat tube provides a massive increase in comfort, while the balanced frame geometry offers perfect handling on the road, gravel and technical terrain. Only a dry throat can stop you.


More off-road | Action

The frame and fork allow for a tyre width of up to 45 mm with 700c and up to 47 mm with 650b wheels. For rougher road conditions, perfectly adapted protectors at the down tube and chainstays protect the paint.


More experience | Adventure

Thanks to its many attachment points for bottle cages, Anything Cages or bags, the BACKROAD offers ultimate versatility, perfect for a day trip or bikepacking adventures.


* Weight: approx. 8.2 kg. May vary by up to +/- 5% due to manufacturing tolerances. Weight with frame colour light grey, size 57 cm, without pedals.

*Slight colour and paint deviations possible on frame and fork set.

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
