Bombtrack Bicycle Company (Germany) – "Carrying on from the success of the original Beyond+, the ADV truly advances things to the next level. Featuring massive 29+ wheels on WTB i45 rims, its ability over rough terrain is hard to believe. This monster truck of a bikepacking rig also employs Sram’s Eagle 12-speed technology and a massive ranging 10-50t cassette while still keeping its ideal chainline. The Jones ‘Loop’ handlebar was specifically developed for offering control & comfort (several hand positions) – in addition to its various mounting possibilities the ‘Loop’ is the perfect cherry on top for your longer off-road trips", shared Bombtrack about the new adventure and bikepacking bike.
The Beyond+ ADV is coming with a monocoque carbon fork, anything cage mounts and internal dynamo cable routing. Utilising the 29+ wheel platform it is coming with WTB ‘Scraper’ i45 double wall sleeved rims and WTB ‘Ranger’ 29x3.0” tires.
"Thanks to the Sram ‘GX Eagle’ 12-speed, in combination with its 32t chainring in the front, the ADV can crawl even the steepest of climbs, a true blessing when loaded up with heavy bikepacking gear. Through axles in front & rear are mandatory", added the company.
According to Bombtrack, "the ADV’S seat tube offers a stealth dropper post cable exit, without doubt one of the best upgrades you can make to your bikepacking bike as it allows you to lower you saddle height while riding, giving you much more space to move around on the bike while descending".
"The rearward extensions of the Jones ‘H-bar-Loop’ allow extra leverage and a wider hand position – be it for comfort or power. The rather short 80mm stem and the 710mm foam grips do complement the ADV's perfect steering, even when fully loaded. While having mounts for bottle cages and the dropper post routing on the upperside of the downtube, there's even more bottle cage posts on the upperside next to Rohloff compatible routing", continues the company about the new Beyond+ ADV.
The new Beyond+ ADV bike will be available from January 2018.
