The CdA takes the best elements from a traditional CX bike, like large clearances, disc brakes & low overall weight, and combines them with the long, low and stable wheelbase and accessible geometry from endurance road to create a ‘go-anywhere’ fat-tyred road disc bike with versatility in spades that comes into its’ own on broken, dilapidated roads, bridleways, towpaths, byways and that those cheeky trail shortcuts.
In standard guise the CdA will happily keep pace on the weekend club run, albeit in a bit more comfort than your fellow club mates thanks to the lightweight, supple, fast rolling 180Tpi Conti Sport Contact II 32c tyres. However, thanks to the wide range 11-34Tcassette out back (providing a wall-climbing 1:1 gear at the low end) and generous clearances (will happily accommodate up to 40c tyres), you’re only ever a simple tyre change away from off-road action.
At the heart of the CdA lies our brand new hybrid double-butted alloy tubeset – a clever mix of two differing grade alloys to help give us high levels of stiffness in certain areas and compliance/flex in others. The higher density 6066 downtube and chainstays provides the basis for a stiff and efficient pedaling platform, whilst the 6061 toptube, seat tube and seatstays help give and added element of compliance and comfort, acting as a nice buffer between rider and road.
Generous clearances and eyelets for full-length mudguards and a rear rack mean the CdA morphs quickly and effortlessly into an all-weather load carrier.
TRP Spyre-C mechanical disc brakes utilize and clever and unique dual-piston action meaning we forgo the usual static slave pad/piston usually found with other mechanical disc brake. Improved pad/rotor clearance and therefore no rubbing and infinitely easier setup and less continual tweaking are the upshots. We've also combined them with Jagwire KEB-SL compressionless outer for optimum performance. The devil's in the detail!
Large volume Conti Speed Ride 42c tyres use the same great fast-rolling, versatile tread as the Cyclocross Speed (see Croix de Fer) but with added puncture protection strip for worry free pedalling when the road gets rough (yet still remain competitively light @ 490g per tyre)
