Our ALLROAD built with Ultegra Di2 8070 is best-of-all-worlds. One the one hand you get the flawless precision and streamlined ergonomics of Shimano’s Di2 electronic shifting. But by forgoing some of the extremes you get with Dura Ace -- that is, the ultra-light hardware, the super-low-friction moving parts and the luxe finishwork -- your cost savings with Ultegra is dramatic. We dial up the value further by offering the standard version of the Reynolds ATR carbon wheelset, rather than the extraordinary Blacklabel version.
The ALLROAD is a legitimate road racing machine. Put 25c tires on, and no watt goes wasted. It’s plenty light for epic climbs, it’s designed to deliver beefy stiffness under power, yet it has a gentle ease on chip seal. But put 35c tires on it and you’ll discover its alter ego -- a ripping-fast gravel bike easily capable of managing dirt hardpack and moderate rock. The ALLROAD is our Swiss Army Knife of bikes. Again and again we marvel at how dynamic it is at balancing road agility with off-road stability.
