It all started 6 years ago with the first incarnation of the Arkose. It took influence from Cyclo-Cross race bikes without compromising the intended use of a high-mileage, versatile, multi-terrain machine. In recent years with the advent of Gravel and Bikepacking it’s been a growing trend to have a drop bar bike capable of more. Whatever the tagline or category the Arkose is a true all-rounder, that will take you wherever you want to go, whether that’s on a multi-day adventure or the long way home from work. Over the years we have tweaked and refined the Arkose, culminating in what we believe is the best yet.
Wide clearance for up to 700 x 45c tyres, it can also accept a 650b tyre up to 2” for more extreme off-road conditions, or you can fit a 28c tyre as many do for a perfect winter road bike. Triple bottle cage mounts alongside full mudguard and rack fittings provide a basis for your perfect set-up. A low BB, long wheelbase and comfort-endurance geometry result in a bike which handles responsively on the road, and excels on the rough stuff. If your riding isn’t restricted by on/off road boundaries, if you’re looking to explore more than just British B-roads, or if you just want a bike with less limitations and more opportunities, then this is the bike for you.
