The R355 Gravel Bike.

So here it is :

2018 R355 Carbon Gravel.

One of our most anticipated new bikes for the coming season is definitely the new R355. With it’s Full Carbon Frame and Fork and ability to be both Road ( 700 x 28 to 40c tyres ) and Dirt ( 27.5 x 2.1 or 29 x 2.1 ) bike, it heralds a new style of bicycle for a new style of rider!

Carbon Fork. Hydraulic Disc Brakes. Through-Axle.

With a host of “trickle-down” technology borrowed from the latest mountain bikes on the market, the R355 features a Sram 1x 11 Drivetrain, Sram Hydraulic Disc Brakes, Stan’s ZTR Grail Tubeless Ready Wheels and both Front and Rear Through-Axles on the Frame / Fork.

It’s Light. ( sub 9kg with pedals and all your extras )

Full Carbon. Tubeless Wheels. Hydraulic Disc Brakes.

It’s Versatile. ( can take 3 different wheel sizes )

Gravel Cockpit.

And it arrives as early as August 2017. ( MSRP : R 52,500 incl VAT )
