If you have somewhere to go, we hope that it’ll take you a while to get there. That’s because our AWOL is born for the open road, and it’s fully equipped for the rigors that come with it. Starting at the frame, it features heat-treated, custom-butted Cr-Mo tubing that’s sure to stand up to years of hard riding and abuse. The geometry is also what you would called “dialled,” as it’s at once comfortable, efficient, and purpose-built to carrying big loads. We also gave this iteration a full bevy of features to further make it ready for the long haul, like fender & rack mounts, a kickstand plate (believe us, this is handier than you know with a loaded rig), and a Dynamo front hub that generates electricity to power lights without needing to plug-in. For the spec, we gave it a wide range of gears and a triple Shimano Sora crankset, wide 45mm Borough tyres, and hassle-free mechanical disc brakes.
- The custom butted Cr-Mo steel frame provides plenty of stiffness, while still maintaining all-day compliance and comfort. Along with the integrated fender and rack mounts on both the frame and Cr-Mo fork, the AWOL provides the perfect blend of versatility and performance.
- Butted Cr-Mo fork features both rack and fender mounts, combining rugged durability, confident steering, and more utility then the average layman will even know what to do with.
- These durable, 32h alloy disc wheels are sure to stand up to mile after mile of adventure, while the 700x45mm Borough Sport tyres provide plenty of traction on varying terrain.
