RUUT

THE FIRST VARIABLE GEOMETRY GRAVEL BIKE IN THE WORLD.

The RUUT range was born from the need to have a REALLY versatile bike. One that would be comfortable enough for backpacking and long distance riding, but at the same time would retain a clearly sporty character. At Rondo we are all competitive guys - we ride fast, we race - but we don't need a bike for the CX World's. What we want from a drop bar bike is to be able to go long, and go fast, especially on rough roads. So, after over two years of development, we came up with a tool that we believe is the ultimate solution for real-world riders.

IN ACTION

HI - LO VARIABLE GEOMETRY

The most significant innovation is the award winning, carbon TwinTip fork that allows you to adjust the geometry to your personal preferences and riding style. The HI position setting, with steeper angles, smaller trail and a lower riding position will be the choice for racing and dynamic, sporty riding. The alternative fork setting gives the bike slacker angles, longer trail and a slightly more relaxed riding position, making it ideal for long distance adventure riding, endurance training or commuting. Go fast or go long. You choose.

Geometry plays a big part here too, so we've made tweaks to improve handling for smaller riders and to reduce toe overlap.

FLEX DESIGN

RUUT CF is built around a lightweight carbon frame with some unique features created by an award-winning team of bike designers. The laterally rigid front triangle will transfer all your energy during those out of the saddle sprints, whereas the compliant rear end with flex points on seat stays, top tube and seat tube will take the edge off potholes and bumps - to the extent that we noticed some riders actually checking if there isn't a big volume MTB tire sitting on their rear wheel! In other words, the RUUT CF is perfect for covering long distance off road, but there is no compromise in power transmission.
