Aerodynamics / 1 of 3
Some might say aero doesn't matter on a gravel bike, but if you've battled a headwind across and open prairie, the thirty-two grams of drag you'll save with the Aspero-5 come as a welcome respite. Most gravel racing is done without the benefit fo a World Tour peloton - or World Tour tactics - and when it's your nose in the wind all day, it's nice to know your bike's shouldering a bit of the load.
Handling / 2 of 3
"Trail" - Front wheel response to rider input - is the most critical factor in high-velocity handling. The ability to adjust trail with the two-position "Trail Mixer" to compensate for the extreme range of tire sizes ensure a uniform ride experience.
Handling / 3 of 3
We engineered the bike to fit most 700x42 or 650x49 tire/wheel combos comfortably. Of course, there are variables - rim width, tire casing/tread depth - which will affect final clearance. IMPORTANT NOTE - We always recommend there to be 4mm of clearance around whichever tire/wheel combo is installed on the bike.
