If there is such a thing as a do it all bike, the Search XR Steel 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 adventure frame, generous tire clearance, rack, fender and bottle mounts, the Search XR thrives off the beaten path and opens every ride up to whatever road or trail your imagination or topographic map takes you.
Heat-treated, back-tempered Reynolds 725 steel features thinner tubes to reduce weight and retain strength. Curved seat stay tubing enhances the material’s comfort, while the carbon fork reduces road vibrations up front for a lively, comfortable ride.
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 and added control through rough terrain.
External cable housing with cable guides along the downtube ensures easy and quick serviceability. The option to run 1x gearing creates an even cleaner look.
Generous tire clearance lets you customize your Search XR to the type of ride that best suits you, or the ride you’re 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 low key fender eyelets and stealth rack mounts expand the Search XR’s versatility without sacrificing strength, lightweight or design.
