Gravel cycling has exploded recently and it’s no wonder. These bikes are truly do-everything machines, both for beginners and experienced cyclists. We were in the game from the beginning with a gravel bike that had dirt heritage in its DNA. The RAG+ has become a favorite among our employees and friends, even those who would never even consider a drop bar bike before. The range of applications is endless - from commuting to amateur CX racing, or simply to be used as a fitness bike. Multiple mounting points allow you to take anything you need along with you, so the Rag+ is also ready for your next big adventure. RAG is short for Road & Gravel and the 'plus' is there because you can run it with standard 700C road tires, 700C gravel tires (up to 45C) or even 27.5” wheels with tires as big as 2.2”! It features the latest technologies including a proper 1X drivetrain with a wide range cassette, disc brakes and thru-axles. The elegant aluminum frame is complemented with a full carbon fork. The 2022 model has undergone geometry revisions that make this bike more stable and comfortable: the headtubes are taller, placing the rider in a more comfortable position. We didn’t go too far that though – we still want to retain the sporty character of the bike), the reach is longer and head angle is slacker.
