CURVE GXR KEVIN GRAVEL BIKE
Gravel Cross Racer. Grand Xploring Randonneur. Kevin.
Name it what you want, ride it how you want.
We have taken the fun from our CXR Cyclocross racing frame, fused the adventure feels of the steel Grovel, and rolled it into one, neat do-it-all package. The GXR also has a brand new fork with HEAPS of tyre clearance and bike-packing features.¬†
700 x 32 - 700 x 45*¬†or¬†27.5 x 2.0 - 27.5 x 2.2*
Optimised around 700 x 35-42 *Not all tyres are created equal - please made sure you don't get fork or frame rub with your selection of tyre.¬†
Custom¬†made chainstay yoke helps¬†
increase tyre clearance and stiffness under load.
Cable routing remains fully external,¬†
fastened by bolt-on cable guides to suit 1 x and 2 x drivetrains.
Rack and fender ready.
Micro pannier or anything-cage ready fork
All New Geometry¬†
Open your mind to some new¬†numbers with the GXR. It's long, so run a short stem to get the best handling out of this puppy.
For example, if you are fitted to a 54cm road bike running a 110mm stem, we advise a Medium GXR with an 80mm Stem or similar.
Be aware - Stand over is tall. Even on the smaller sizes. Why? Because cargo space on long adventures is important! We wanted to¬†enable shorter riders to hold as much cargo as possible, so the larger triangle won the battle of cargo vs. standover.
