We wanted a bike that was quick and responsive on the tarmac to make the Sunday morning group-rides with our friends as fun as ever, yet still able to tackle gravel roads when called upon. Even when packing a lightweight overnight set-up or full camping gear, the bike had to perform well and inspire on all surfaces and in all conditions.
The F/AR frame is purpose-built but with a subtle elegance that will inspire a desire to own it and ride it. Smoothly blending the basic structural elements without unnecessary gimmicks, for a natural product shape as well as being optimised structurally for manufacturing and performance.
Partnering with industry-leading bag makers Roswheel and Fidlock gave us access to innovative technology never before used as we have. The result is a bag system that is easy to use, high-performance and incorporates the features we felt were missing in existing products.
