If you've ever felt torn between a "traditional" road bike and a dedicated touring rig, you're not alone. But now, the Sequoia Elite gives you both by combining the two into one genre-bending bike. It has everything you need to hit the road and never look back.
The Sequoia's path to adventure starts at the frame, which we constructed from Premium Cr-Mo tubing. This material is coveted for its strength, respectable weight, and tuned ride quality. And we took this a step further by selecting tubes that are specific to each frame size, further ensuring that every frame rides exactly as we intended.
Of course, this is only a piece of the equation, with the next being its dedicated Adventure Geometry. This geometry is unique in that it skews the line between a traditional road bike and a dedicated touring rig. You'll find an ample wheelbase and low bottom bracket for control, but the chainstays and tube angles ensure that you'll be able to travel efficiently and quickly, regardless of whether or not your rig is loaded.
Digging into the details, the frame is outfitted with an ample number of mounts for water, racks, and fenders. And for the build, we included a carbon fork and reliable parts, like a mix of SRAM Force 1 shift levers, powerful hydraulic disc brakes, and hand-built Hayfield wheels that are cased in 38mm-wide, 2Bliss Ready Sawtooth tires.
- The Sequoia is built from our size-specific Premium Cr-Mo tubing. This ensures that every frame is strong, light, and capable, while every frame size rides exactly as we intended. This philosophy is furthered with our Adventure Geometry that provides ample confidence over rough and smooth terrain, alike. And lastly, we equipped this frame with fender & rack mounts to make sure you'll be well equipped whenever adventure strikes.
- Specialized Adventure Gear Hover handlebars put you into a comfortable position when cruising on the tops, but also provide a wide grip for when the descents get gnarly.
- The Praxis Alba M30 crankset, with its 38T chainring, provides plenty of gear range for climbing or speeding down the fire roads.
