Rondo Ruut ST 2 Gravel Bike 2021
Rondo Ruut ST 2 Gravel Bike
The Ruut ST 2 Gravel Bike from Rondo features all the durability and comfort benefits of steel-framed gravel bikes while also having a low weight and superb performance output. It has a Tange Steel frame at its core that's equipped with a Rondo TwinTip 2.0 Carbon fork and a SRAM Apex 11-Speed groupset with a wide-ranging 11-42T cassette and PRO 5.0 FM cable-actuated hydraulic disc brakes. It also rolls upon Rondo Superlight Aluminium wheels wrapped in WTB Nano tyres, giving you an exceptional balance of durability, comfort, traction and control.
SRAM Apex 1x11-Speed Groupset with PRO 5.0 FM Disc Brakes
Power is applied via a SRAM Apex 1x11-Speed drivetrain with a wide-ranging 11-42T cassette. This transmission gives gears to rocket up the steep hills, speed along forest trails and provides the optimum gears whether you're riding on the tarmac or the trail. It also features exceptional braking performance from PRO 5.0 FM cable-actuated hydraulic disc brakes that ensure dependable braking power in all weather and terrain conditions.
PRO 5.0 FM caliper brakes are powerful, mechanically actuated hydraulic brakes with full CNC construction. The hydraulic system is fully sealed and maintenance free and the pistons use extra durable, cold weather resistant seals for extended durability in all weather conditions. Due to tight tolerances and durable sealing, the return action of pistons may seem slow at first, but this effect disappears after a period of break-in. This does not affect the performance or braking power in any way.
Durable, Lightweight and Stylish Tange Steel Frame
The Ruut ST 2 is a classic bike that is comfortable, versatile and tough. This model features a light Tange steel frame at a more accessible price point. Now upgraded with Rondo's TwinTip 2.0 carbon fork, it’s lighter and more compliant, and also comes with triple cargo cage mounts. Equipped with tough components built to last, including reliable and easy to maintain mechanical TRP brakes, a SRAM Apex drivetrain, Rondo alloy gravel wheels on WTB Nano tyres. An ideal option for the entry level commuter who needs a bike to go the extra mile.
Rondo Twintip Adjustable Fork Geometry
With Rondo’s Twintip forks technology at its helm, this ride features adjustable geometry by raising or lowering the front end’s angles. The first setting provides steeper angles and a lower riding position and is optimised for racing and sporty high-adrenaline riding. The second option offers slacker angles for a more relaxed ride position for maximised riding comfort that’s perfect for long distance adventures.
Rondo Superlight Wheels and WTB Nano Tyres
Rondo’s Ruut ST 2 Gravel Bike is an exceptional all-situation journey companion that’s perfect for any cycling venture. It’s as capable when attacking the trail and nipping through inner-city traffic and putting pressure on race-pelotons as it is for epic long-distance touring rides. It rolls on Rondo Superlight wheels wrapped in WTB Nano tyres for immense pace and grip regardless of the terrain or weather conditions. It is also equipped with a top-quality finishing kit from Rondo that ensures you have stylish and reliable components beneath you while travelling with the utmost confidence in your steed.
