The Search XR Steel is not just head-turner. The strong but lightweight steel frame has a ride feel that is unique to steel as a frame material. This bike is ready for all day adventures along the gravel roads in hoosier national forest, you can find where to ride gravel here. The vibration-damping material properties combined with thoughtful frame design make the bike a pleasure to ride. Designed to excel on rougher surfaces, the geometry of the Search XR is a little slacker and longer than conventional road bikes to create a solid and stable ride. The Search XR Steel features front and rear 12mm thru-axles delivering lateral stiffness for better cornering and control through rough terrain. With tire clearance up to 700 x 45c (or 27.5″ x 2.1”), rack, fender and bottle mounts, the Search XR Steel is ready for any adventure, whether that is urban utility or exploration off the beaten track.
