Design Is In The Details

PERFECT AERO CUTOUT

Close-fitting cutout to shield the rear wheel and achieve the most speed.

MIND THE GAP

No oversized gaps between front tire & downtube for better airflow transition and less turbulence.

HUGE CLEARANCE

The original Exploro set today’s standard for 54mm tire clearance. The RaceMax has 61mm!

75MM DOWNTUBE BASE

Lower downtube aero profile is 75mm wide to fully shield water bottle.

46MM DOWNTUBE NECK

Upper downtube necks down to 46mm to pick up the airflow coming off the front tire.

SIZE-SPECIFIC DOWNTUBE

Reduced depth on smaller sizes to keep frame compliant and keep space for bottles.

NARROW HEADTUBE

Headtube is sized like a road bike for a small 1 1/4” steerer for optimal aerodynamics.

BIG STEERER

Inside that narrow headtube is a big 1 1/2” steerer for best strength and stiffness.

MINMAX HEADSET

To fit this big steerer inside the narrow headtube, we use the custom MinMax headset.

MINIMALIST CROWN

Fork crown shapes haven\'t changed much since brakes were attached there. Now that we have disc brakes, we don’t need that bulk of material and can reshape the crown for better strength, stiffness and weight. Plus better aerodynamics.

PURE-ROAD FORK LENGTH

With the shorter crown, we can make our forks 25mm (1 inch) shorter than other gravel bikes. Exactly the same as a road fork. This offers better stiffness, lower weight, an easier steering geometry and better aerodynamics.

DOUBLE-DROP CHAINSTAYS

Dropping the drive-side chainstay improves tire & crank clearance. Dropping the other side as well creates a much more efficient structure behind the BB for higher stiffness & strength as well as lower weight.

THREADED BB

Our bikes come with threaded BBs for the best alignment and to avoid any issues. yet we do so without threads in the frame as they cause other issues. Read more about our solution here.

DIRECT-MOUNT REAR BRAKE

Standard frames require an adaptor to use a 160mm brake rotor. We have integrated that into the frame, meaning you don’t need any extra pieces to attach the brake.

DIRECT-MOUNT FRONT BRAKE

Standard forks require a flip-flop adaptor to set the correct brake rotor size. Our direct-mount pre-sets the caliper for 160mm rotors without any extra pieces.

INTEGRATED FENDER MOUNTS

Invisible until you need them. Custom fenders coming soon.

SELF-ALIGNING WEDGE CLAMP

Self-adjusting bolt angle for higher clamping forces with lower torque.

RITCHEY RAIL CLAMP

The new standard for gravel bikes, available for round and oval rails.
