Specced with Shimano's new CX50 46/36T cyclocross chainset and Avid's excellent BB5 mechanical disc brakes, the Vapour Disc is a capable, race-ready straight from the the box. Mudguard and rear rack eyelets add a smattering of everday versatility (aggro tourer, anyone?)
The Vapour is light enough for sportives and the rear rack and guard eyelets means it’s the perfect weekend tourer also. The new stiffer front end might even tempt you to ride it along your local mountain bike trails. Can you justify a cross bike? You can when a bike is this versatile.
By far the most versatile of headtube standards available, the XX44 headtube ensures full compatibility with different fork steerer tube standards. It also provides a larger weld surface area at both the downtube and toptube junctions to allow for larger diameter tubing and a tube shaping, not to mention increasing front end stiffness, improving tracking and handling.
Large clearances and eyelets for full-length mudguards and front and rear racks mean the Vapour Disc morphs quickly and effortlessly into an all-weather load carrier. Tour and expedition ready!
The smaller, closer-geared 46/36T combination gives much better off-road capability (especially when paired with the 12-28T cassette)
