Product Description

Unfortunately here in the UK we don’t have the swathes of unpaved roads that snake across the US, so it seems a bit weird to us to label the new CdA as our new ‘gravel racer’. Not to be outdone, what we do have is mile after mile, of broken, dilapidated roads, bridleways, towpaths, byways and cheeky trails.

So, without further ado, we’re proud to introduce our ‘bridleway basher’… In some ways a successor the longstanding Vapour model, the CdA blurs the line between the more traditional CX features and a modern Sportive/endurance road geometry – a bonefide modern day Frankenbike with long, stable wheelbase, generous clearances and BB drop, large volume tyres, and an accessible, relaxed geometry. 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. The CdA 20 takes this hybridisation theme one step further combining road and mountain drivetrain for a simplified, wide-range 1x10 setup; the 42T chainring combined with the 11-36T cassette giving a low gear of 31.9GI and a high of 104.3GI, with manageable average jumps of 14.1%. No front derailleur = no problem. The X7 Type 2™ clutch rear derailleur, in combination with the optimized chainline (via BB axle length – 47.5mm) and seat tube-mounted chainfall protector provides ample chain security. Less is more* (*excluding 11-36T cassette).
