Specialized AWOL Disc Adventure Road Bike 2018
When you set your sights on the horizon, it’s not always about who gets there the quickest. The Specialized AWOL Disc Adventure Road Bike 2018 is geared up for the long haul, with all the necessary attachments you need to head out for days in the saddle, such as a durable CR-Mo steel frame and mudguard and rack mounts, a kickstand plate and a dynamo freehub that charges your lights and accessories as you ride.
The frame offers plenty of stiffness, whilst still maintaining all-day compliance and comfort for long days in the saddle. The fork also follows suit, with a butted Cr-Mo construction that soaks up vibrations and trail chatter, but also features all the rack and mudguard mounts needed to strap your equipment and head out for the weekend.
Specialized’s geometry is also vastly different in comparison to their endurance race bikes, and the AWOL features a much more relaxed geometry that aims itself towards comfort, efficiency and stability over long distances.
Shimano Sora, 9-speed gearing has been incorporated to provide a wide range of gearing when carrying full-loads on the bike. This gearing is perfect for getting out and exploring the unknown, taking on vast hills and climbs without out breaking a sweat.
Tektro Spyre, 160mm mechanical disc brakes have also been used to inspire the needed confidence when descending down technical trails. When carrying a heavy load, these will provide you with all the braking prowess you need, and due to their mechanical nature, can easily be fixed by the road side.
Finished with the Specialized Borough Sport, 700x45mm super wide tyres, grip is not an issue on the AWOL. These tyres increase puncture resistance and allow you to run lower pressures, for greater grip.
- The custom butted Cr-Mo steel frame provides plenty of stiffness, while still maintaining all-day compliance and comfort. Along with the integrated mudguard 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 mudguard mounts, combining rugged durability, confident steering, and a huge amount of versatility
- 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
