For the perfect sunday ride:
Equally at home on the road with 700c wheels the CGR Alloy is ideal for a sportive or ride out with friends. A comfortable mile-eater that can outclass most.
Perfect loaded or light:
With discreet mounts for full mudguards and a rear rack the CGR Alloy is ready for duty around town with your commuter case or up country with loaded panniers, but that's not where the versatility of this bike stops.
Contained beneath the sleek lines of the aluminium frame and carbon fork are wide tyre clearances (for up to 45mm width tyres) that allow your CGR Alloy to do whatever you want it to from exploring forest trails and gravel right through to being your weekend best, road trip or big sportive bike.
Reliable hydraulic disc brakes do the stopping and mean that the CGR Alloy can be set up for multiple uses with a simple swap of tyres or wheelset.
"The flat mount hydraulic disc brakes are perfect for this all-surface bike and are made all the more impressive when combined with the 12mm thru-axle wheels," says Burrow.
Durability & comfort:
The seamless, 6061 T6 Heat Treated aluminium tube set creates a stiff frame which provides instant acceleration and performance no matter the terrain. The ovalized top tube of the CGR Alloy adds to the frame's horizontal stiffness for performance and the vertical compliance for outstanding shock absorption and comfort.
The slacker tube angles of the CGR Alloy provide greater comfort keeping the rider more centred and better balanced for endurance riding. The tube lengths and angles have been designed to offer quick handling given the wide tyre and multiple wheel options.
Finishing touches like the simply stunning paint schemes just add to the charm of this capable bike.
