A 100 years ago we didn't have road bikes and touring bikes - there were just bikes and that didn't stop anyone from heading out into the wilderness. With this spirit we built their groundbreaking Sequoia. It's reshaping long-held ideas and it's forever changing what we'll come to expect from a bike.
The Sequoia's path to adventure starts at the frame which we constructed from Premium Cr-Mo and stainless steel tubing. These materials are coveted for their 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 Cro-Mo fork and reliable parts like a mix of sturdy Shimano components fuss-free mechanical disc brakes and hand-built Hayfield wheels that are cased in 38mm-wide 2Bliss Ready Sawtooth tyres.
