Sometimes you just want to take off on a longer ride, to explore new roads, discover new places and simply to relax and enjoy the ride. This is where the Audax comes in, with a less aggressive and more relaxed touring style geometry the ride is comfortable yet lively enough to keep you grinning from ear to ear. The frame is built from the same proven heat treated crmo tubes as the Arise, so just for peace of mind you know the bike is tough enough, to take on a bit of 'b-road' if it's needed. Painted in a metallic white, with polished rear stays to show off the brazed dropouts the Audax has more of a custom handmade look that is guaranteed to turn a few heads. Out of the box the fitted fenders mean that bad weather is no longer a reason to stay indoors. The rear rack mounts also mean that adding panniers for longer touring rides is easily done. If your ride takes in some steeper climbs the compact crankset and 11-28 Shimano cassette offers enough gears to keep spinning up all but the steepest Col's. You can make more out of the descents thanks to the DT Swiss R24 wheelset and the Continental 28c tires that keep rolling resistance to a minimum.
IMPORTANT NOTE: These bicycles come partially assembled and require additional assembly, setup and tuning, including wheels, brakes and gears (if applicable). Professional assembly by a professional bicycle mechanic is highly recommended and is required for any warranty claims.
