It's right for you if...
You have big dreams for the likes of Belgian Waffle Ride, The Mid South, and Rasputitsa, and know you'll need the most dialed 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 drivetrain with a wide-range cassette, powerful hydraulic disc brakes, Bontrager Paradigm Comp Disc wheels with 25mm inner width rims and wide 700x40c gravel tires 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 longer
- This bike is exceedingly versatile and suited to a wide variety of ride 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 tire clearance means you can use tires up to 45c for extra traction and stability in any conditions
- The horizontal sliding dropout makes it easy to fine-tune your geometry or run singlespeed

Ride Tuned seatmast
Our no-cut Ride Tuned seatmast is designed for the rigors 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.
A 12mm front thru axle makes steering more precise for more control, and the quick-release feature makes wheel removal easy.
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 tire pressure for increased traction and comfort without the threat of pinch flats.
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.
Gravel Specific Tires
Wider gravel-specific tires 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.

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.
