Overview

The Search Carbon is more than a road bike: it is an all road bike. It is for those who search out challenging topography and an escape from the familiar - riders driven by an insatiable desire to discover that which lies around the next bend or over the crest of the next hill...and the next one after that. The route to the elusive 'end of the road' is often unpaved, which is why the Search Carbon features a long, stable wheelbase, comfort-enhancing ARC design and plenty of clearance for up to a 35c tire. Wherever your path leads - and whatever it is made of - Search it out and ride it.

Paved roads do not confine us. We pedal beyond to seek out adventure along the most challenging routes – whatever they are made of. We ride to escape the familiar.
