The Grande Route is a classic Randonneur, which enables long-distance cyclists to cover great distances at a sporty tempo with with a comfortable seat position.
A modified geometry of the Silkroad model was used, with a slightly shorter top tube. That way a comfortable seat position was achieved in conbination with drop bars.
The dropouts lead to an aesthetically pleasing integration of the disc brakes. Modern features like lightweight oversize tubes, integrated stainless steel racks and the Ergo-Stop steering stop complement the overall concept. The Grande route is offered with a 30 speed Shimano derailleur or a 2 x 11 in the Gold specification, using hydraulic brakes and Shimanos combination STI/Hydraulic levers.
The XCR limited special edition from stainless steel constitutes the fulfilment of a long-cherished dream. A bike with integrated luggage rack, constructed entirely from stainless steel. This bicycle unites everything that is aesthetically pleasing, refined and high quality. The ultra-light Columbus XCR tubes make the Grande Route XCR a cycling machine for the long distance specialist with a penchant for the extra special. The bike will be produced on a limited edition basis and only on pre-order.
