Kepler Disc

£479.00 £359.25

This is the disc brake version of our legendary all-purpose adventure frame. Designed to take on whatever challenge is thrown at it – whether that’s thrashing along gravel trails, a weekend bike-packing trip or even a full blown transcontinental tour.

Kepler can run up to 42c tyres when you need that extra grip, however it’s equally happy running slicks when you want to keep up with the roadies. And of course it’s fully equipped to fit front and rear panniers if you’re loading up for a longer trip. It features laser cut disc dropouts, s-shaped chainstays and a slightly lighter fork for 2017. The double butted chromoly tubing makes for a tough yet lightweight ride which will keep going for years to come.
