Eastway Balun C1 Force1 Cyclocross Bike

This latest edition of the Eastway Balun has upped its game, offering the rider a simplified, offroad-specific 1x11 drivetrain and powerful hydraulic disc brakes. The Balun is an all-out cyclocross bike that’s ready to rip it up. Plus, thanks to its double butted alloy frame, full carbon forks and flared Ritchey handlebars, it can handle anything and provide a comfortable and controlled ride even over the most challenging terrain.

Race-ready Frame

The frame is built with a full race-type geometry and features fairly steep angles and a raised bottom bracket. While the bike has been optimised for race use, as it comes with 700x32c WTB Cross Boss tyres it’s also suitable for exploring well off the beaten track on your mini adventures. Plus, when you encounter an obstacle that you can’t ride over, the frame’s cable routing is designed with shoulder carrying in mind.

SRAM Force 1 1x11 Groupset

Engineered in Germany, the SRAM Force CX 1x11 drivetrain is for those who love to ride without holding back. From beginner to expert, Force delivers personalised gear options that will get you as far as you want to go and wherever you want to go! The SRAM Force hydraulic disc brakes deliver outstanding performance across a broad variety of disciplines and excellent ergonomics, efficiency and advanced technology.

Ritchey/Fizik Finishing Kit

To finish off this quality package, the Balun C1 built up with a full Ritchey finishing kit, with matching bars, stem and seatpost. Lightweight, strong and reliable, Eastway has refused to cut any corners when completing this build. Topping it off, there’s a custom colourway Fizik Monta MG saddle that’s perfect for the rigors of rough offroad riding.
