One frame to rule them all
Superior X-Road is designed to be fast, stiff and versatile. „We aimed for a frame solution, that allows us to build one-to-do-it-all bike but to keep its racing face,“ says Petr Lavička, product manager of Superior bikes. „Our X-Road is a proper race bike, which thanks to its smart design solution geometry can be used as light gravel. You can fit up to 40mm tires, ad mudguards and choose single or double chainring,“ he adds.
The new design concept distinguishes road and gravel versions
Both versions, road racing models from the Gran Fondo model line and Gravel models, will be introduced with a new design. „For next season, we decided to divide gravel and racing models significantly from the design point of view,“ said Martin Haman, head of design in Superior bikes. Road model line will keep the simple down tube SUP logo and vivid colours, gravel models will underline the brand's design simplicity. „No downtube logo, earthy colour tones, that tune with the off-road character of the gravel bikes and design, that underlines speed, lightness and purity,” said Martin.
Gravel versions will get also special plastic covers on the downtube and chainstay to protect the paint from scratches.
