If your adventure is going to be taking you well off the beaten track, into places untouched by civilization, then the Beyond Plus is the bike to make that journey possible. Built on the 27.5" wheel platform, the Beyond Plus has oversized 2.8" tires that offer an incredible amount of grip and a cushion-like dampening to soak up all the lumps and bumps. Proven by our friend Clem Shovel on her Tuscany Trail unsupported adventure race, with a 15th place finish from over 500 starters.
The Beyond Plus is packed with features that make it capable of these challenging journeys, and not all of them immediately obvious. Integrated into the rear of the frame and forks and rack mounts, on the underside of the down tube is an extra cage mount, allowing for a total of 5 water bottles to be mounted on the bike. The SRAM NX drivetrain with 30t chainring and an 11-42t cassette give the Beyond Plus just about all the gearing you could need. Once your destination is reached, losing the bags will leave you with a super-fun rigid trail bike ready to put a whole new smile on your face.
