The Strasbourg71 gravel race bike is a tribute to the iconic victory seized by Eddy Merckx during the opening stage of the 1971 Tour de France, where his exceptional sprinting prowess outshone the competition and he won the overall tour that year.
This bike features impact-resistant material beneath the downtube and on the rear of the seat tube, which resists impacts and protects the frame from stones flicked-up during a gravel ride. It powers up the hills and down the descents with confidence and control thanks to its SRAM 1x11 drivetrain and hydraulic disc brakes. Plus, it's equipped with an integrated chain catcher to restrict chain-drops when racing across rough terrain. It rolls efficiency aboard Fulcrum Racing 700 wheels and has tyre clearance for wide 40mm gravel tyres, and features mount points for mudguards, travel bags and multiple water bottles.
This bike is optimised for gravel racing but it’s also an exceptional choice for touring and adventure cycling, and it’s a great weekend road race champion if you fit it with road tyres.
