Each frame is hand built to perfection by master frame builders in Taiwan using some of the best cycling specific steel tubing available. These guys know a thing or 2 about building frames!
We have taken the fun from our CXR Cyclocross racing frame, fused the adventure feels of the steel Grovel, and rolled it into one, neat do-it-all package. The GXR also has a brand new fork with HEAPS of tyre clearance and bike-packing features
Tyre clearance: 700 x 32 – 700 x 45 – (Optimised around 700 x 38-42) or 27.5 x 2.0 – 27.5 x 2.1
Yoke Design: Custom machined chainstay yoke helps increase tyre clearance and stiffness under load.
Cable Routing: Cable routing remains fully external, fastened by bolt-on cable guides to suit 1 x and 2 x drivetrains. Di2 or Mechanical ready. 1 Frame = Any configuration.
Adventure Features: Rack and fender ready. Micro pannier or anything-cage ready fork
Have you ever heard of a titanium superhero? No, Superman is the man of S_T_E_E_L. While our Ti Kevin is staring in the pond, Kev of Steel is defending the planet from baddies. While Ti Kevin is busy grooming, our steel hero is defeating dictators and saving kittens from burning buildings.
Titanium may make a nice piece of jewellery, but swords are made of steel, and are the most honourable of weapons, reserved for nobility. Whether you’re protecting an empire, performing a decapitation or conducting a ritual sacrifice, steel is your material of choice.

The SB100 is a strong XC climbing machine, but the gravity-inspired geometry, 120mm Fox 34 Step-Cast fork and meaty tires are all trail.
The result is a perfect blend of pedaling efficiency with downhill prowess. We redesigned the Switch Infinity mechanism specifically for 100mm of travel – it’s light, and tucks behind the seat tube so we can accommodate a water bottle in the front triangle. Big days require big bottles. Instead of chasing featherweight on the build, we spec’d the bike as we tested it – Fox Transfer post, Maxxis 2.3 tires, and 180mm front rotor. It’s still light, but also right.
