Adlar is made for bikepacking, for explorers, for bike travellers. The structure of the carbon fibre frame has been reinforced to allow a maximum additional load of 35 kg. This feature has been paired with new designs, a careful study of the geometries and completely integrated cable routing.
The frame weighs 1100 g and comes in five sizes: XS, S, M, L, XL. The geometries derive from the mountain bike: the frame triangle develops horizontally, the reach is quite pronounced. This solutions make it possible to use a shorter handlebar stem that works in synergy with the open steering angle (70°). A transformation that translates into better handling and control on the more demanding trails with a fully loaded bike.
The generous tyre clearance is made to accommodate any 52 mm (52-622) gravel tyre up to mountain bike tyres measuring 29 x 2.00″. The frame has been designed to fit a fork with extra-length blades. This configuration makes it easier to install a suspension fork (40 mm max travel compatible with the 1″1/4 – 1″1/2 conical headset series) without changing the frame overall geometries. Also, the opening on the fork’s right stem allows the passage of the dynamo hub cable, if used. Even the 27.2 mm seatpost can be replaced with a dropper post.
The front and back carriers load the weight of the bags onto the thru axles that pass through the frame and fork. This was done to reduce any structural stress on the Adlar. Other fixing points offer stability and the option of installing a third bottle holder or a tool bag under the down tube, in addition to a top tube bag. The accessories kit is completed with the mudguards (sold separately) and a set of 4 quick-hook bags made in partnership with Miss Grape.

Fixing and load points
The generous tyre clearance is made to accommodate any 52 mm (52-622) gravel tyre up to mountain bike tyres measuring 29 x 2.00″.
All setups feature exclusively single-crown transmission. This choice has made it possible to free the vertical tube from the derailleur support. In this area the forms have been squeezed to recreate a sort of small integrated mudguard.
