Substance CRS 1 Adventure Road Bike

Substance CRS 1 Adventure Road Bike - £1,899.99

The Substance is the bike that will go anywhere you point it; on whatever road surface you choose.

With a dedicated lightweight carbon frame and fork designed to take both 700c and 650b wheels & tyres, the possibilities are endless. The Substance offers you a new way to ride.

A full carbon fork with tapered head tube, combined with flat bar specific stem lengths and geometry, result in confidence inspiring steering. With integrated cable routing, this bike keeps everything nice and tidy, allowing you to make the most of the bikes rack and mount capabilities. Fit mudguards to keep you dry, and a rear luggage rack to carry anything from your laptop to your shopping.

With a Hi-Mod unidirectional T-700 Toray carbon frame, tapered headtube, and full carbon forks, the Substance carbon is born tough and light. This bike can go as hard and fast as you want it to or be a lightweight friend for long distance relaxed epic. With the addition of mounts for luggage, mud guards and multiple bottles it’s also capable of the biggest bike packing or touring adventures.

The Substance CRS-1 is fitted with SRAM’s Apex 1 hydraulic groupset, giving you a gear range that can copy with any terrain. X-Sync technology from the chainset and a Roller Bearing Clutch on the rear mech means your chain will always stay firmly planted, whatever the adventure.

The Substance CRS-1 is fitted with WTB SpeedTerra 650b TCS wheels, with big volume WTB Venture TCS 47mm tyres. We believe 650b is the future of adventure cycling, the large outer diameter keeps your wheels rolling over bumps, whilst the added tyre volume allows you to adjust pressures depending on the terrain for grip, comfort and luggage weight. The Wheels and tyres are tubeless ready, so just install the supplied valves and add sealant if you want to run tubeless.Finishing kit is made up of a Vitus 6061 aluminium handlebar, stem and seat post. The handlebars feature a flat top section for added comfort on and off road, with the Substance CRS-1 featuring a 16-degree bar flare. The bike is finished with a Vitus saddle with Ti rails.
