£2,000.00 GBP


At launch it was hailed as our most comfortable and versatile bike ever. With modern MTB inspired geometry - long top and head tubes and a short stem offers nimble, confidence-inspiring handling. The press loved it: “exceptional ride quality” (Cycling Plus), “a highly versatile bike” (IMB), “the best bike of this genre” (Offroad CC). The bike has 5 separate bottle mounting points to allow for many luggage carrying options. The 700 features Shimano's excellent GRX gravel groupest with 2 x 11 gearing and hydraulic disc brakes.
