Cyclists looking for a high-tech, drop-bar road bike that’s truly go-anywhere/do-anything capable had few choices until today. Meet Renegade. This is not your standard-issue, “heavy duty” adventure bike. The lightweight, full carbon fiber monocoque frame and fork soaks up the rough stuff and smoothes those mixed terrain routes, thanks both to the inherent shock-damping characteristics of the material as well as the long and low endurance-inspired geo. With disc brakes and the ability to mount a full-bodied 40c tire, this bike is ready for beat-up streets, back roads, dirt paths you name it.
These are the road bikes for smart cyclo-tourists and urban speedsters. Our legendary Reynolds steel chassis Auroras and Bosanova assure unbeatably robust performance and resilient ride-damping you’ll appreciate while loaded up and bombing around on the streets and rural backroads. This is magic carpet ride stuff, especially for full-pannier touring and rough-road adventures.
TOP 5 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW
Ultegra has long been recognized as a solid performer thanks to Shimano’s Systems Engineering approach. Lighter, more stylish and advanced by incorporating the latest Dura-Ace technologies.
Shimano’s top of the line BR-685 Hydraulic disc brake system with 160mm front and rear rotors has been in development for years. Combine this with the Ultegra ST-R685 shift lever and you have a system that provides best in class performance.
The American Classic ARGENT Tubeless wheelset is hand built with a 22mm wide x 30mm aerodynamic profile and bead barb technology. The benefits of tubeless are well known – you can prevent flatting with sealant and have a much broader range of tire pressure to dial in the ride.
The Ritchey Vector Evo Saddle acts like a carefully-tuned suspension system for your body weight, managing stress through the rail itself and into the Vector Wing. No other saddle system offers the level of refined ride comfort, weight savings and adjustment range.
Clement, having taken over CX this past year, is now focused on the Adventure market for this year. The X’Plor USH 35c tire is designed specifically for the varied conditions of mixed-terrain riding. The smart combination of firm center-ridge and diamond-shape side knobs provides low rolling-resistance and exceptional cornering control.
