One of the most popular bikes of our range is the Arise, due to its super rugged and versatile design as it has been built with versatility in mind from the ground up. For 2016 this aspect has been enhanced thanks to a sliding dropout which offers longer chain stay lengths which are perfect for touring and longer rides, but also the ability to replace the derailleur hanger in the event of an accident. Up front the fork includes rack mounts making this bike more of a ‘Swiss Army Knife’ than ever before.
Keep it single speed or convert it with a full group-set. Now in its third generation the Arise has been revised to further enhance that versatility. Thanks to a sliding dropout the chain stay lengths can be varied for different kinds of riding, a little longer for a more comfortable touring set up, or shorter for a more playful and nimble feel. The frame retains the 4130 tubing and the front triangle is butted and heat-treated for a better strength to weight ratio.
The option to convert the Arise into 1x or 2x gearing has been retained thanks to the removable cable guides and derailleur hanger. The new Tektro RX5 v-brakes use a short pull system, to work better with STI shifters. The fork blades now feature rack mounts, so setting up a low rider with panniers is easily done.
