Versatile and reliable 700 X 40 Vittoria Terreno Dry tyres offer superior grip on varied terrain. This bike is the perfect companion for spontaneous tarmac to trail exploration.
AGILE AND DURABLE ADVENTURE GRAVEL BIKE
The RUUT range was born from the need to have a do-it-all bike. One that would be comfortable enough for backpacking and long-distance riding, but at the same time would retain a clearly sporty character. The crew at Rondo are all competitive cyclists - they ride fast, they race - but they don't need a bike for the Cyclo Cross (CX) World's. What they want from a drop-bar bike is to be able to go long, and go fast, especially on rough roads. So, after over two years of development, they came up with a tool that we believe is the ultimate solution for real-world riders.
TWIN-TIP FORK TECHNOLOGY EASY-ADJUST GEOMETRY
This bike 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 aggressive 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.
