It's right for you if...
You have big dreams for the likes of Dirty Kanza, Land Run 100 and Trans Iowa, and know you'll need the most dialled gravel bike for these epic adventures. You also love the idea of one bike with such incredible versatility that it excels at gravel racing, adventure road riding, bikepacking and whatever kind of ride you feel like tackling next.
The tech you get
A 500 Series OCLV Carbon frame with Rear IsoSpeed, a Shimano GRX drive train with a wide-range cassette, powerful hydraulic disc brakes, Bontrager Paradigm Comp Disc wheels with 25 mm inner width rims and wide 700x40c gravel tyres that provide extra traction and stability, and a vibration-absorbing handlebar.
The final word
A carbon gravel bike built for the longest days, roughest roads and biggest adventures. It's light, fast, comfortable and spec'd with parts that stand up to the most rugged terrain.
favorite_borderWhy you'll love it
- The IsoSpeed decoupler cuts down on fatiguing bumps in gravel so you can wander more, reach new places and stay stronger for longer
- This bike is exceedingly versatile and suited to a wide variety of riding styles, including gravel rides, bikepacking and daily commutes
- Extra mounts on the top tube, seat tube and both sides of the down tube make it easy to carry extra gear and water
- Massive tyre clearance means you can use tyres up to 45 c for extra traction and stability in any conditions
- The horizontal sliding dropout makes it easy to fine-tune your geometry or run singlespeed
Gravel Specific Tyres
Wider gravel-specific tyres provide better traction and more stability while riding on gravel or dirt tracks.
Flat Mount disc brakes
All-new Flat Mount disc brakes are more elegant, lighter, smaller and cleaner than traditional disc brakes, providing superior performance and stopping power under harsh conditions.
A 12mm front thru axle makes steering more precise for more control, and the quick-release feature makes wheel removal easy.
Sometimes you need a little extra protection, so we developed our light, tough external Carbon Armor polymer shield. It provides reassurance when you know your down tube is bound to take some abuse.
Ride Tuned seatmast
Our no-cut Ride Tuned seatmast is designed for the rigours of pro racing. It's the lightest, most comfortable solution for day-in, day-out performance and comfort, however rough the roads or hard the riding.
Tubeless Ready rims
Bontrager TLR (Tubeless Ready) Road is the first fully integrated tubeless system for road wheels. When you go tubeless with TLR, you can run lower tyre pressure for increased traction and comfort without the threat of pinch flats.

Sizing & fit
The charts below show our recommended sizes based on height, but there are some other factors, like arm and leg length, that determine a great fit. That’s why you’ll see some overlap in our recommendations. Not every rider who’s 5´8˝, for example, will fit on the same size bike. The best way to find your perfect fit is to consult the experts at your local retailer.
