Product Description

With recent developments in the mtb tyre/wheel dept., our mid-fat, bikepacking/adventure-ready off-road tourer gets some big changes for 2016, improving versatility, fit and overall ride experience.

With the move to a dedicated 27.5+ platform (conventional 29" compatible) comes a whole host of benefits; same air volume as the 29+ setup but in a lighter (both rim, tyre and tube), faster accelerating, more manoeuvrable package that that a wider range of folk, especially at the smaller end of the size spectrum, can comfortably fit on without sacrificing geometry or standover.

The wide-range, rugged Deore 3x10 drivetrain will take you, fully laden to the furthest flung corners of the world and the efficient, fast-rolling WTB Trailblazer's are tubeless-ready and ripe for the upgrade. With no-stone-left-unturned we've even bundled the bike with a couple of Free Parable's excellent Gorilla cages - allowing you to carry pretty much anything (1.5kg limit) that'll fit into their hugely adjustable cradle.

Features

27.5+/Conventional 29er compatible

With an OD much, much closer to that of a standard 29x2.2.25” tyre/rim combo you can truly have a bike with a geometry that handles well with both setups, without any compromises (i.e. much more cross-compatible). Not only that, you get the same air volume as the 29+ setup but in a lighter (both rim, tyre and tube), faster accelerating, more manoeuvrable package that that a wider range of folk, especially at the smaller end of the size spectrum. Win-win.

Mjölnir chromoly

AKA ‘Thor’s Hammer’ and pronounced ‘Myol-n(ee)r‘ (rolls off the tongue, eh?). Our double-butted, cold-drawn, seamless, Taiwanese chromoly tubeset also goes by the aliases of 4130, Cr-Mo and Chromo. It’s a like-for-like replacement for other, identical branded chromoly tubing and ultimately means a saving can be passed onto you via either a healthy price drop or a little more room for up-speccing elsewhere without sacrificing performance.

WTB Trailblazer

WTB's Trailblazer could possibly be the ideal tyre for the Longitude with its' fast, almost continuous raised, flat centre tread for low-rolling resistance and straight-line speed and meaty shoulder block tread for bite in loose corners and off-camber trails. Best of both worlds - the ideal off-road touring tyre?

Free Parable Gorrilla Cages

We’re bundling the Longitude this year with x2pcs of the excellent Free Parable Design Gorilla Cage. They attached to each fork leg via a traditional triple bottle boss and clever plastic cleats. Easy on, easyoff, they’ll carry up to 1.5kg on each leg of whatever you can fit into their highly adjustable cradle. We have it on good authority that a bottle of wine is a great fit!
