A gravel racer, a modern touring bike or an audacious all-road audax machine? Take your pick – the Bombtrack Audax AL has it all covered…superbly and in style. The Audax AL features a premium hydroformed aluminium frame that uses optimised butting profiles to reduce weight and increase compliance. With plentiful clearance, it can swallow up wide tyres or be set-up with mudguards as needed. Employing short chainstays, it’s a bike that’s happy to change lanes quickly, but yet remains solidly planted over the roughest of surfaces thanks to a larger than average contact patch.
With all the fixing you need to secure your gear, the versatile Audax AL frameset offers a choice of 650B wheels with large volume tyres or 700C wheels with large road-orientated tyres, just like its steel stablemate. The voluminous size of 650Bs keeps rolling resistance low, yet allows the Audax to swoop across a range of surfaces from paved roads to gravel tracks. While the 700C option offers an extra responsive and ultra smooth ride over less aggressive surfaces.
Available for 2020 as a bare frameset for building up with the groupset, finishing kit and wheels of your choice (see below).
With a full range of mounts and braze-ons across its fork and frame, the Bombtrack Audax AL is happy to accept either panniers or bikepacking bags, and multiple hydration options.
