With aggressive race geometry that will make you feel like you could stick some 700c wheels with slicks on at the weekend and jump into your local crit, but then with up to 2.1" wide tires mounted to 650b wheels you'll be just as at home exploring the gnarliest backroads. The flip chip in the dual rake fork ensures that the changes in wheel size don't impact the handling of the bike. The broad, dropped chainstays are ready to accept those big tires while keeping the rear end stiff and responsive.
Though the geometry is quite aggressive for a gravel bike, the ride will remain comfy thanks to the high quality carbon layup, optimized to absorb that gravel chatter. As you're ripping those gravel roads you'll likely be kicking up rocks into your nice carbon frame, so Cinelli designed an integrated protection plate for the downtube made from Kevlar.
This unique frame allows you to ride fast on different surfaces: asphalt, white roads and rough terrain thanks to the possibility of assembling 700c and 650b wheels with tires up to 2.1”.
The carbon monocoque construction and its racing geometry make this frame light and extremely fast. Perfectly suitable for long distance gravel races and also ready for bike packing explorations.
