Here we have the OPEN WI.DE. in 27.5in configuration and some
lovely Easton carbon contact points. The WI.DE. is designed for
maximum enjoyment in all conditions and on all terrain, and
Schwalbe's semi-slick Rock Razor are definitely at the sportier end
of the spectrum - decently smooth on road sections and an absolute
treat when cornering off road, they reward enthusiastic riding.
DT Swiss GR 1600 SPLINE 25s, with their generous 24mm internal
rim width, provide ample support for the beefy tyres, and are both
refined and durable. This is a bike built for adventure and the DT
are a perfect choice.
Running tubeless, with orange anodised Muc-Off valves to add a
splash of colour, there's no need to worry about pinch flats, and
rotating mass is kept under control. Together with the expertly
laid-up carbon frameset the fat tyres provide ample cushioning,
with plenty of speed on tap.
