The Cervelo Aspero Apex 1x Disc Gravel Bike blends a pro-level carbon frameset with solid and dependable components to inject speed into any adventure, whether it contains gravel, dirt or road.
A stiff and light carbon frame donates a spritely performance up the climbs and reactive acceleration while its aerodynamically honed tube sections allow it to slip through the air with ease at higher riding paces. Accepting either 700c or 650b wheelsets, the frame affords excellent versatility across a broad scope of terrain while its generous tyre clearance allows for the use of plusher, more comfortable rubber.
A geometry that balances agility and composure allows the rider to relax across technical route sections but react to corners and obstacles when necessary. This geometry can be tweaked by the integrated Trail Mixer fork chip that, when altered, hones the ride character based on the wheel size is being used.
The SRAM Apex 1 gear set up offers a broad range of ratios and has a single chainring format to simplify use and minimise mechanicals over rough ground. The partnering hydraulic disc brakes infuse confidence, whatever the riding conditions, thanks to their precise and modulated stopping power.
