The Ruut range was born from the need to have a REALY versatile bike. One that would be comfortable enough for backpacking and long distance riding, but at the same time would retain a clearly sporty character.
At Rondo we are all competitive guys - we ride fast, we race - but we don't need a bike for the CX World's. What we want from a drop bar bike is to be able to go long, and go fast - especially on rough roads. So, after over two years of development, we came up with a tool that we believe is the ultimate solution for real-world riders.
To start with, the RUUT CF is built around a lightweight carbon frame with some unique features created by an awarded team of bike designers. The lateraly rigid front triangle will transfer all your energy during those out of the saddle sprints, whereas the compliant rear end with flex points on seat stays, top tube and seat tube will take the edge off potholes and bumps - to the extent that we noticed some riders actually checking if there isn't a big volume MTB tire sitting on their rear wheel! In other words, the RUUT CF is perfect for covering long distance off road, but there is no compromise at all in power transmission.
