When it comes to road bikes, our approach is more practical than most. As long time cyclists, we don't want you sacrificing comfort for fashion. We also know that performance is crucial, but not to the extent that it makes riding a pain-literally. When we first started building road bikes in 1993, we were one of the first companies to use sloping top tubes, a unique carryover from our revolutionary mountain bike geometry that results in a compact rear triangle and more efficient power transfer-with more comfort to boot. Since we're not a Tour team brand, we make our bikes for the black sheep road rider, choosing more comfortable aggressive geometries and materials, as opposed to uncomfortable aggressive. Using steel, Scandium and carbon fiber, with a host of different models depending on individual style, we make road easy, efficient and fast.
