FEATURED ROAD BIKES
Classic Reynolds 853 Steel frame delivers a ride that only steel is capable of providing. For 2017, we added a beautiful new E-Thru dropout, internal rear brake routing and formed seat stays for better vertical compliance.
PHD AND ESATTO DISC MODELS
As paved surfaces continually devolve into disrepair and become tough to ride, the road bike needs to evolve to address this issue. Bigger tires, disc brakes and a capable, comfortable geometry are the new standard for road bikes.
A lot of time and energy went into research on our Endurance geometry, which places the rider in a position of greater comfort without a compromise in performance and handling. The relaxed upright position alleviates fatigue for an all-day ride appeal, while the longer wheelbase provides a stable riding platform that retains responsive and confident handling.

MORE TIRE CLEARANCE/BIGGER TIRES
A larger tire can run lower pressure, which means it absorbs more road vibration and grips the road better, resulting in more comfort and better handling. Recent tests have found that larger volume, wider tires actually have less rolling resistance, making them faster than their skinny, high-pressure predecessors.
E-Thru axles offer a definite advantage over a standard quick release and really maximize the benefit and performance of a disc brake system. E-Thru offers secure, correct and consistent brake rotor alignment each time the wheel is removed and put back in place. All of our new 2017 disc-brake road bikes are equipped with 12mm front and rear E-Thru axles providing a stiffer, smarter and safer ride.
Quickly becoming the new standard for everything road disc with its clean, low-profile mount that reduces hardware and rotor size. The result is a weight loss while retaining all the consistent and powerful braking force associated with disc brakes.
