The Gestalt and Nicasio series take you Beyond Road. These endurance models let you take any path you feel comfortable, whether it be on the asphalt or up a gravel road with a secret view. The lightweight butted aluminum or CroMo steel frames feature clearance for up large volume tires, with wide-range drivetrains, fender eyelets, and powerful road-specific disc brakes to make any terrain and weather manageable. Explore the areas you’ve previously seen as not suited to drop bars, with the speed and confidence necessary to take you Beyond Roads.
