RAG 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” MTB wheels with tires as big as 2.2”! Perfect for anyone who wants a REAL all round drop bar bike. It will be a perfect adventure bike, ideal for gravel grinding, amateur CX racing, commuting, and if you mount 28mm road tires you can hit the tarmac with your roadie buddies. It features the latest technologies including proper 1X drivetrain with a wide range cassette, disc brakes and thru-axles. This bike looks unlike anything out there and the range of applications is unlimited.



"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." -
