Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like : "Unbound Gravel". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

$6000 USD for their entry level offering.

I am always curious to see what various companies consider to be 'gravel race geometry'. This has hardly any extreme geometry, except for an 80mm BB drop(and that isnt extreme, its just on the far end of the spectrum).
Lack of droopy chainstay is nice.

360mm bar width at the tops, so that you can easily squeeze between the lumber on your 30 mph descent through the rock garden...
or if it comes to a 5 up sprint at the line...
...something for everyone...
Ride On

This is not an entry level whip. I bet with the right motor, it's fast.

Maybe I'm old fashioned, but proprietary seatposts seem wrong.
