Fugio, Datum, Tour de Fer
Almost a brand within a brand, our adventure multisport category is packed full of bestsellers. These bikes have conquered everything from ultra-long distance races, numerous continent crossings and chaotic commutes.
Whatever crazy cycling antic you have planned, we’re sure we’ll have the bike/bikes to suit.
New to the range for 2018 is the rebirth of Fugio. With a frame recipe that features a dash of Equilibrium Disc, a dollop of Croix de Fer, a sprinkle of Tarn and a small glug of CDA, the Fugio is our Road Plus monster build that’s packed with the latest tech.
The foundation of the new Fugio is a double-butted Mjölnir Cromo frame with a carbon road plus fork. Built on 650b wheels and Clement 50c tyres it’s complemented nicely with the rugged Shimano 105 groupset and RS-505 hydraulic disc brakes.

People are coming round to the fact that maybe what the pro's are using perhaps isn't quite the right choice for them. It's this ethos we've tried to emulate with the Datum 20 - distinctly traditional elements brought bang-up-to-date with the pairing of RS505 hydraulic disc brakes, Shimano 105 mix groupset, a responsive, durable, modern carbon fibre frame and fast rolling Clement Strada USH 32c tyres.

Our large-tyred road disc bike that'll comfortably sit mile-after-mile on tarmac, but, should the tarmac come to an end, it won't mean turning back or the premature end of the ride. Not necessarily about out-and-out overall speed, but more fun, adventure, exploration and pneumatically-suspended comfort. The Datum 10 sports the latest Shimano Tiagra groupset with hydraulic RS405 disc brakes and is all about enjoying yourself, across a variety of terrain, both paved and unpaved, be it fast or leisurely.

The range you'd turn to if you were to quit your job and embark on an impromptu pedal-powered world tour! The Tour de Fer represents our vision of escapism; a bike designed for the sole purpose of carrying rider and luggage long distances efficiently and in comfort.
Build-wise, we dressed the frame with durable, no-nonsense components that we knew from personal experience are tour/expedition worthy and should last the sorts of high-mileages for which the bike was intended. The spec list should, by all accounts, read like a cyclo tourist's wishlist; even going so far as to include an SP dynamo hub with B&M front and rear lights! Expedition-ready straight from the box - just add rider, luggage and a strong sense of adventure.

We put it together as affordably as possible without cutting corners that would've been detrimental to the ride or long-term ownership. This meant choosing rugged, reliable kit that will last the high mileage for which we intend the bike to be used. Most of what makes it so good for touring is also 100% applicable to commuting. Everyday practicalities like large volume, puncture resistant Schwalbe Marathon tyres, tough 36H wheelset, powerful, controlled disc brakes, Tubus Cargo rear rack and custom length and extra-long Chromoplastic mudguards. Tour de Fer 10 is just as suited as a daily commuter as it is a cross-continent tourer.
