ABOUT THE BIKE

MORE MOUNTING POINTS

Additional frame and fork mounting points for extra bottles and gear

SEAMLESS INTEGRATION

Now featuring our new 3D system, including a spacer that offers seamless connection with the frame’s toptube in 0mm and 25mm configurations. Specced with FSA SRS (external between the handlebar and stem, routing through the headset) for maximum versatility and hassle-free maintenance, the updated 3D system is also compatible with FSA ACR (fully integrated), FSA SMR (semi-integrated), Token A-Box, Token S-Box, Ritchey Switch and Deda DCR.*

LIGHT OR LOADED

Bikepacking-ready with three mounting points added on each side of the fork, additional bottle cage mounting options in the front triangle, new rear rack mounts and relocation of the toptube mounting bolts. Or, leave some of the gear at home and have one of the peppiest gravel racers on the market.

ALL-TERRAIN HANDLING

With an eye toward ride quality, the Dark Matter features seatstays designed to flex and dissipate shocks, and allows for 45c (40c with fenders), to offer maximum traction and comfort on all surfaces.

RIDER DESIGNED

Gravel geometry provides fork rake specific to frame size, to allow for tight turn clearance on more technical runs. With new stack and reach measures fine-tuned to each size range, a dialed-in fit is assured. Our new seatpost, as well as being 50g lighter, now offers a reversible saddle clamp with 15mm or 25mm setback for optimal fit adjustments.

MAX TIRE SIZE

45c (for both 700C and 650B)

REMOVABLE FRONT DERAILLEUR HANGER

For clean installation of 1x, compatible with 46/30T to 52/36T or 1x46T

REVIEWS

"The Dark Matter is a great machine for tearing across roads and some tracks that will bounce you around a bit. Once you dial in the fit, it’s game for going fast." www.cyclingmagazine.ca
