DARE TO ADVENTURE When riding, for every cyclist it's a true rite of passage. Your frame of mind at the starting point is never the same as when you arrive. Regardless of how you perceive fatigue, you change within. And so does your view of the world around you. Every adventure is an evolution.Adlar originates from this tension. A bike as a medium for giving things true meaning and bringing clarity to your vision of the world. An object that together evolves, changes and transforms itself.Isn't this the definition of gravel?
SOMETHING DIFFERENT The frame weighs 1100 g and comes in five sizes: XS, S, M, L, XL. The geometries derive from the mountain bike: the frame triangle develops horizontally, the reach is quite pronounced. This solutions make it possible to use a shorter handlebar stem that works in synergy with the open steering angle (70°). A transformation that translates into better handling and control on the more demanding trails with a fully loaded bike.
READY FOR CHANGE The frame has been designed to fit a fork with extra-length blades. This configuration makes it easier to install a suspension fork (40 mm max travel compatible with the 1"1/4 - 1"1/2 conical headset series) without changing the frame overall geometries. The opening on the fork's right stem allows the passage of the dynamo hub cable, if used. Even the 27.2 mm seatpost can be replaced with a dropper post.
FIXING AND LOAD POINTS The front and back carriers load the weight of the bags onto the thru axles that pass through the frame and fork. This was done to reduce any structural stress on the Adlar. Other fixing points offer stability and the option of installing a third bottle holder or a tool bag under the down tube, in addition to a top tube bag.
INTEGRATED MUDGUARD All configurations feature exclusively single-drivetrain transmission. This choice has made it possible to free the vertical tube from the derailleur support. In this area the forms have been squeezed to recreate a sort of small integrated mudguard.
TYRE CLEARANCE The generous tyre clearance is made to accommodate any 52 mm (52-622) gravel tyre up to mountainbike tyres measuring 29 x 2.00".
BIKEPACKING KIT The accessories kit is completed with the mudguards (sold separately) and a set of 4 quick-hook bags made in partnership with Miss Grape.
