What the bike was prised for? First of all - the mixtutre of generes in one box.
"This is a bike that’s taken on the best of the best from Cervelo’s radical take on the aero bike and Cannondale’s reinvention of the SystemSix marque, to the stunning Trek Madone, Specialized Venge, and a myriad of aero road designs."
That is possible thanks to the adaptation of the TwinTip fork concept known from our gravel RUUT line. You may think that the Vario Geometry idea applied in an aero racing road bike will compromise either of setups, but the Cycling Plus/BikeRadar editors counter with this:
"That one bike can have this dual personality and not feel compromised in either option is quite brilliant – and switching between the two shapes is a five-minute job with just a multi-tool in hand.
But that's not all! Another groundbrakeing thing is the compatibility with 650b road plus wheels. While this is not a complete novelty in biking industry and it has previously been introduced in gravel bikes (also in our RUUT group), which do not deliver a pure road bike experience, which the HVRT does in a full swing!
"When you add it all up, the HVRT doesn’t feel compromised as a super-fast aero road race machine or an all-day endurance bike, and with the optional wheels it’s a gravel grinder par excellence."
