The HVRT is the world’s first variable geometry, road-plus ready road bike!
This is an all out race bike, first and foremost so don't let it's additional features throw you off track. No compromises have been made in this area. It's responsive and aggressive. However, since most of us do other things on our bikes than race the TdF, we built in some unique solutions that will make this bike your best everyday companion.
First of all the HVRT offers the option to use big volume 700c rubber, or even mount massive road plus tires on 650b hoops, ultimately transforming the HVRT into a road-plus pothole slayer.
Secondly, thanks to the unique Twintip fork you can change your riding position and adjust the steering character of the bike. The first setting with steeper angles, smaller trail and a lower front will be the choice for racing. The alternative fork setting, that fits big tires and / or fenders, with slightly slacker angles is ideal for harsh, long endurance rides.
To comply with both applications mentioned above, the HVRT has been built to be as laterally stiff as possible to make sure power is transmitted with no loss, however there is some degree of vertical flex in the rear to take the edge of the biggest hits.
So imagine this situation (which in our experience is pretty common): you regularly do fast group rides and races on the weekend, but with your training you want to stay away from traffic and explore some of the B-roads during your summer holiday. The only bike we can think of that can do both things properly is the HVRT. All you need is two sets of wheels. Your race-day set could be high profile, aero and fancy, (eg. 700CX28). Your second set can be a cheap 650B setup with 1.9” road plus tires. The wheel swap takes 5 minutes, but the difference that it makes is massive! We are not talking about subtleties of typical “endurance” road bikes such as a slightly lower BB or slightly more forgiving frame. We are talking about a black-and-white, go-or-no-go kind of transformation.
Aero design, aggressive geometry, massive tire clearance, lightweight FLY technology carbon frame, thru axles and disc brakes. Pit bull of the peloton that doesn’t give a shit about the conditions that you race or train in. Aero the hell out of your opponents and kick asses on cobbles, pot-holed B-roads or even the Strade Bianche of Tuscany!
