About Gran Fondo

Allow us to introduce the new century slayer: The Gran Fondo. Built to keep you rolling smooth and fast on those all-day rides no matter what the road conditions are. Whether climbing up steep gradients or bombing down switchbacks the Gran Fondo will keep you isolated from road vibration so you can ride strong all day. With the Gran Fondo we have flipped old paradigms around: Don't let the road rule you. Rule your road.

Key Features

  • High-modulus carbon frame with VRTech (Vibration Reduction Technology) reduces road vibration by 24.6% compared to a frame without VRTech.
  • Full carbon fork with VRTech and 100x12mm thru axle provides precise steering with less road vibration.
  • Wave seatstays have an undulating shape that disrupt and diffuse road vibration.
  • Hidden fender eyelets on fork and rear dropouts provide a discreet fender mount for inclement weather training.
  • Endurance geometry with a taller headtube and longer chainstays put the rider in a more upright riding position and increases bicycle stability.
  • Integrated chainstay protector protects the frame in the event of chain suck.
  • Flat mount disc brakes provide increased stopping power in a low profile design.
  • 142x12mm convertible rear thru-axle offers increased torsional stiffness and steering precision.
  • Unique tube diameters and carbon layups for each size frame produces a consistent ride quality across the full size range.
