The hardest part of creating the All Road Ti (ARTi) was deciding how much 'road' and how much 'gravel' to mix in to it's capabilities. Make it too much of a road bike and it loses the confidence when the road narrows and things get dirtier, and of course if it is designed to excel on the roughest double track and gravel roads it will become too sedate on the smoother surfaces. The ARTi is a culmination of many many drop bar variations over the years, as we have played the edges of what is capable enough without being dull.
Tire clearance of 700x38 allows for some pretty capable tires to be installed and with these types of bikes, tires define the ride. The ARTi is optimized for tires 28-38mm. Change the tires, change the personality of the bike.
Really, at the heart of the ARTi is a love of adventure and a desire to enjoy every ride to its fullest. Perfectly tuned for hours and hours of dirt roads or jamming through your favorite back road.
Is the ARTi perfect for road or gravel? How about ripping the local single track that has become mundane on your full suspension mountain bike? Bottom line, the ARTi is a stable road bike, whether it's paved or dirt roads, it will allow you to go further more comfortably.
