Bike info

RAG +2 is short for Road And 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”! Perfect for anyone who wants a REAL all-round drop bar bike. Use it for bike packing, gravel grinding, amateur CX racing or commuting. If you mount 28mm road tires you can hit the tarmac and easily keep up with your roadie buddies. It features the latest technologies including a proper 1X drivetrain with a wide range cassette, disc brakes and thru-axles.

Gravel bikes have become incredibly popular and we were in the game from the begging with a bike that had dirt heritage in it's 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 as a fitness bike. A properly scaled down version of the Rag is also available on 26” wheels, and is perhaps one of the only really gravel specific kid's bikes on the market.



"A real mountain biker’s gravel bike – take it out and thrash it round some trails, and surprise yourself at what you can do with drop bars and no suspension." - GRIT.CX

" RAG+ is a great package that rides very well. It’s comfortable, no doubt helped by the high volume tyres, rides well and provides a confidence inspiring ride." -
