The Toughroad is a flatbarbike.... there is a rare dropbar version, though.

Most if not all flatbarbikes have MTB gearing. The 48T requirement you list for the chainring makes no sense. That puts you at 40 mph. If you are that fast, just ride what your sponsor provides.

I converted my Toughroad to 1x and use a 36T chainring and I never use the 11T cog except steep downhill. And then I coast. I probably need more a 34T.
