RONDO RUUT AL GEN 3: THE EVOLUTION OF THE ULTIMATE ALL-ROUNDER
A gravel bike that feels great on any terrain. A gravel bike that is always one pedal stroke ahead of its time. And a gravel bike that catches every eye, boasting unrivaled aesthetics. Since blazing onto the scene in 2017, the RONDO RUUT AL has reigned as the epitome of the perfect off-road racing bike. The time has come for another evolution of this bike, introducing the RONDO RUUT AL GEN 3.
A trailblazer that shaped history. Make no mistake, ever since bursting onto the scene in 2017, the RONDO RUUT AL has etched its name as a true legend in the realm of gravel bikes. A gravel bike that embodies aesthetics, innovation, and unbridled power all in one. With just the right blend of audacious attitude and an appetite for exploration, it fearlessly conquers all manners of gravel roads—be it the classic paths or the rugged frontiers of extensive bikepacking escapades.
Now, the third iteration of the RUUT AL not only lives up to this reputation but propels it even further. Because the new RUUT AL isn't merely a modest update; it's an entirely fresh concept meticulously crafted to embrace the diversity of the swiftly evolving gravel bike scene. The outcome? Behold the RONDO RUUT AL V3—the paramount all-rounder for every flavor of gravel venture.
A DISTINCTIVE FRAME DESIGN PACKED WITH INNOVATIONS
The amount of brain power we've invested in the new RUUT AL is already evident in its frame design: This comes from the mind of Jurek Dąbrowski. His vision: The new aluminum frame shouldn't just connect tubes sturdily, but rather transform into a cohesive, highly functional masterpiece for ultimate riding pleasure. The result is a gravel bike that stands out from the crowd with numerous special features—starting from the seamless integration of the seat tube and bottom bracket to the generous tire clearance.
And that's not the whole story! In the realm of aesthetics, the new RUUT AL raises the bar even higher. To illustrate, we've taken cable routing integration a step further, giving the bike an impeccably sleek appearance. Engaging elements like the third iteration of our TwinTip fork and the integrated toolbox guarantee unparalleled uniqueness on any terrain.
THE NEW RONDO RUUT AL STANDS OUT WITH THESE BOLD FEATURES:
- Bottom bracket: Our redesigned bottom bracket is a gravity cast one piece with CS yoke. This creates space for chunkier tires (622-47 and 584-50), but it's also a playground for a larger chainring. The complex design integrates neatly with a pint-sized toolbox.
- Toolbox: Nestled on the underside of the frame, the toolbox contains a special mini-tool, a chain breaker and space for chain links. Downright handy: The tools can be pulled out one-handed by simply opening a rubber flap and pulling it out with one finger. The toolbox can be easily unscrewed and thus gives easy access to the bottom bracket region, making cable routing a breeze.
- Integrated cable routing: Another eye-catching feature is the bike's integrated cable routing. Cables run with purpose through headset bearings and exclusive channels beneath the bottom bracket, delivering a look that's as crisp as your confidence. The cables for the mechanical dropper seatpost can be routed internally, too.
- Integrated frame design: The seat tube and bottom bracket are fused together harmoniously, with the sleek flattened contours enhancing the frames compliance.
- TwinTip fork: Our TwinTip system at the revamped fork lets you tweak the fork offset and head tube angle—enabling a more personalized riding stance.
- Bespoke freedom unleashed: The TwinTip fork merely scratches the surface of the myriad choices awaiting you to put your personal style stamp on the bike. From single to double chain ring, fenders or no fenders—the new frame redefines customization, making bike tailoring an art form as distinct as your persona.
