Rondo Ruut CF2 Gravel Bike 2018
Whether it’s cyclocross racing, endurance touring, or just exploring well off the beaten path, Rondo’s Ruut CF2 Gravel Bike will allow you to push onwards regardless of how poor the weather is, or what the terrain is like. Built around Rondo’s Flex Design EPS carbon fibre frame, you’ll enjoy strong, direct and immediate power transfer to get you up to speed quickly. The Ruut CF2 also has a low overall weight, so you can efficiently and easily climb even the toughest slopes.
In a world first design for dropbar bikes, the Ruut CF2 features Rondo’s “TwinTip” forks, which enable the rider to change the geometry to suit the terrain/riding type. This is thanks to their adjustable dropouts, which can be set in the “HI” setting for steeper angles for a low and racey road bike feel, or the “LO” setting for a slightly longer wheelbase and slacker angles, making it ideal for endurance or off-road adventure riding.
SRAM Rival 1 Groupset
SRAM’s Rival groupset gives you immediate pickup and engagement with every rotation. It brings you a wide-range rear cassette as you power up the climbs, and an 11-42 tooth configuration, no summit or slope should be beyond you. A 40 tooth chainring strikes the right balance of easy climbing and the ability to sprint for the line.
Mudguard and Pannier Pack Ready
Finishing off this fantastic package is Rondo’s sealed bearing disc wheels, which are ready for riding in all weather and terrain types. Also, SRAM’s Rival 1 hydraulic disc brakes help you to scrub your speed in all conditions. The Ruut CF2 comes prepared with mudguard eyelets and rack mounts, ensuring you can be prepared for anything.
