This gorgeous gravel-ready Moots is an absolute feast of fine
details. At the heart of it is that titanium frameset, handmade in
the USA with those perfect Moots welds.
The Routt 45, as the name implies, accepts tyres up to 45mm

without harshness. They're matched here with ENVE's gravel-specific
The SRAM gruppo is found here in 1x form, but there's nothing

René Herse offer their Hurricane Ridge tyres in a range of
different casings, allowing you to choose between the ultimate in

These are the Endurance model, which sit in that sweet spot in the
middle, combining reinforced sidewalls with sensibly low weight.
Their tread pattern is ideal for those who like to push hard in the
corners, something this titanium thoroughbred will do with
