the Audax AL

A modern touring bike or an audacious audax machine.

Introducing the Audax AL

Our 650B Audax AL features a hydroformed aluminium frame that uses optimised butting profiles to reduce weight and increase compliance. With plentiful clearance, it can swallow up wide tyres, or be set-up with mudguards as needed. Employing short chainstays, it’s a bike that’s happy to change lanes quickly, but yet remains solidly planted thanks to a larger than average contact patch.With a full range of mounts and braze-ons across its fork and frame, it’s happy to accept either panniers or bikepacking bags.

Highlights

  • Lightweight aluminum frame with heavily hydro formed tube profiles and T47 bottom bracket. 
  • Full carbon fork with bottle cage mounts. 

Top tube bag direct mounts, triple cage mount on down tube for optimized bottle position, bottle cage mounts underneath the down tube and on the seat tube .
