Curve GXR Kevin of Steel III Gravel Frameset - Cruiser
Italian Steel -
The main frame triangle is comprised of Columbus Zona Italian-made double-butted tubing. Zona allows for the ideal compromise between weight, strength and life of the frame.
Two Bikes In One -
The GXR's carbon fork, the Ride 400, has clearance for wheel options based on your riding style. For example, Kevin can run either 700c wheels with 32–45 mm tyres, best suited for commuting, gravel, and cyclocross, or if you’re looking to tackle some rougher terrain with more traction, use 650b (27.5”) wheels fitted with 1.8–2.2” tyres. Curve has the above wheel options in both carbon and aluminium available.
No Weird Flex -
The custom 4130 steel yoke design allows Kevin to run some super wide gravel tyres in two wheel sizes and also stiffens the BB area to avoid frame flex under load.
Ready For Adventure -
Kevin comes equipped with rear rack mounts, fender mounts, and 3 x bidon mounts; and can run either a 1x or 2x drivetrain. Kevin is ready for single or multi-day bikepacking adventures due to extra tyre clearance, a longer wheelbase, and a more stable platform.
