If there is such a thing as a Do-It-All bike, the Search XR Carbon is definitely it. This slick, hardy adventure-seeker blurs “traditional” bike categories by redefining what you can expect from a gravel bike.
With its lightweight carbon adventure frame, generous tire clearance and rack, fender and bottle mounts, the Search XR Carbon thrives off the beaten path and opens every ride up to whatever road or trail your imagination or topographic map takes you.
The Search XR’s lightweight carbon frame features size-scaled tubing that tunes frame compliance to the needs of every rider. Fatiguing vibrations are damped by curved and ovalized seatstays, bent chainstays, thinned seat tube and top tube, and optimized fork blade design.
Designed to excel on rougher surfaces, Search XR geometry is a little slacker and longer than conventional road bikes, creating a stable ride.
Front and rear 12mm thru axles plus an oversized head tube junction, downtube, BB shell and chainstays deliver lateral stiffness for maximum power transfer as well as control through rough terrain.
Internal cable routing with adaptable port covers keeps cables tight and secure and prevents water from entering the frame. The Search XR is also compatible with a wide range of configurations such as 1x or 2x drivetrains in either Di2 or mechanical and accommodates a stealth dropper post.
Generous tire clearance lets you customize your Search XR to the type of ride that best suits you, or the ride your planning on any given day. Larger tires provide more comfort and control on paved surfaces, and greater traction on off-road or gravel excursions. See Geo Chart for tire clearance details.
Multiple bottle cage mounts on the frame and fork, custom removable fender bridge mount, and stealth rack and fender mounting points expand the Search XR’s versatility.
