Kanzo Adventure & Oryx KAD01As(M)
Our new Kanzo Adventure is a gravel bike for real adventurers. It’s the perfect tool to escape the crowds and find your way off the beaten track. Whether it’s a day trip over new paths in your backyard, a multiple day bike packing trip or an ultra cycling race: the Kanzo Adventure does it all. It’s our most adventurous bike yet.
The geometry of the Kanzo Adventure is progressive. This gravel bike has a Kanzo Optimized Geometry (KOG), which means that the geometry has been tuned to the intended use of the bike. The Kanzo Adventure’s geometry is similar to that of a mountain bike. slacker head tube angle, a lower bottom bracket, a longer wheelbase and a steeper seat tube angle. The slacker head tube angle lengthens the wheelbase and gives the bike more confidence. Yet, the Kanzo Adventure is kept responsive by using a shorter stem. This way the bike gives enough trust to conquer endless mountain passes and shred unexpected single tracks while still being able to steer fast and aggressive on the most technical offroad sections.
With the maximum tire clearance of 53mm or 29x2.1” the Kanzo Adventure offers enough comfort and space to go on adventures on any terrain. Even with wide tires there’s plenty of space around the bottom bracket and fork crown for extremely muddy conditions. The Kanzo Adventure feels at home on all surfaces: from smooth gravel with a narrower tire set-up to rougher terrain which, until now, you would only dare tackle with your mountain bike. Here too the Kanzo Adventure offers unrivalled flexibility to adapt your setup to the terrain of your next adventure.
A multitude of riding styles comes with a multitude of luggage set-ups. The design team made sure you’ve got plenty of possibilities for the perfect setup during your next ride on the Kanzo Adventure. Use the twenty mounting points for bottle cages, a tool kit, mudguards, cargo cages, fork bags, top tube bags and more. We used the F-steerer technology for the Kanzo Adventure in order to hide all cables in the frame. This makes it easier to attach bags to the frame and prevents possible damage to the bike. With the possibility to add a hub dynamo and a suspension fork, the Kanzo Adventure is extremely versatile and ready for anything.
