Tame the toughest terrain with Warbird’s Class 5™ VRS-equipped high-modulus carbon fiber frameset and SRAM’s sure-shifting Apex 1 drivetrain. As the industry’s first gravel race bike, Warbird is designed and built to provide control, comfort, and speed when the going gets rough. ?

The Class 5™ Vibration Reduction System has specially shaped?seatstays?with a tall, thin, vertically oriented profile that promotes vertical compliance by allowing the?seatstays?to "flex" outwards on impacts. The horizontally oriented?chainstays?work to resist torque and maintain a laterally stiff rear end. The?seatstays?and?chainstays?lack bridges, furthering the full length of the stays to contribute to flexibility. And a rear thru-axle delivers precise tracking while allowing the?seatstays?to provide that incredible compliance

Warbird features the latest evolution of our already industry leading gravel racing geometry. Warbird places the rider in a position that can be maintained for hours on end over bumpy B-roads and loose surfaces, drastically reducing fatigue. A low bottom bracket and stable wheelbase help keep the tires planted and boost confidence. Long top tubes paired with short stems provide increased stability at high speed and on rough descents

This fork features carbon construction with an aluminum steerer and utilizes a 12 x 100 mm thru axle for true tracking and flat mount brake for quick setup. Most importantly, the fork includes an incredible array of accessory features: Three-Pack mounts accept either water bottle cages or Anything Cages for increased hydration or gear carrying capacity / Mid-blade mounts allow the attachment of our Down Under Low Rider Rack for front pannier use / Internal Dynamo Hub Cable Routing means clean cable routing for those upgrading to dynamo front hubs / Fender mounts mean more pleasant riding in rainy weather, allowing you to tack on more training miles
