The first variable geometry gravel bike in the world. The RUUT range was born from the need to have a really versatile bike. One that would be comfortable enough for backpacking and long distance riding, but at the same time would retain a clearly sporty character. At Rondo we are all competitive guys – we ride fast, we race – but we don’t need a bike for the CX World’s. What we want from a drop bar bike is to be able to go long, and go fast – especially on rough roads. So, after over two years of development, we came up with a tool that we believe is the ultimate solution for real-world riders.The most significant innovation in the RUUT family is the award winning, carbon TwinTip fork that allows you to adjust the geometry to your personal preferences and riding style. The HI position setting, with steeper angles, smaller trail and a lower riding position will be the choice for fast riding on smooth surfaces. The alternative fork setting gives the bike slacker angles, longer trail and a slightly more relaxed riding position, making it ideal for technical trails and long distance adventure riding or commuting. Go fast or go long. Get low or have more control. You choose.All RUUT bikes are equipped with simple and efficient SRAM 1X group sets and extremely grippy WTB Nano tyres mounted on wide rims. These amazing tyres roll perfectly on tarmac and work great on all off road surfaces – be it soft mud, rocky gravel or even snow.The RUUT CF 2 is built around a lightweight carbon frame with some unique features created by an awarded team of bike designers. The laterally rigid front triangle will transfer all your energy during those out of the saddle sprints, whereas the compliant rear end with flex points on seat stays, top tube and seat tube will take the edge off potholes and bumps – to the extent that we noticed some riders actually checking if there isn’t a big volume MTB tire sitting on their rear wheel! In other words, the RUUT CF 2 is perfect for covering long distance off road, but there is no compromise in power transmission. The face-lifted frame now has HALO clearance that lets use tires up to 47mm wide, and have a full set of mounts for additional storage and fenders. The RUUT CF 2 features a redesigned version of our trademark TwinTip fork made with FLY technology. It’s lighter, horizontally stiffer and offers more vertical compliance and a full set of racks and bottle cages mounts. The RUUT CF2 is fitted with reliable, no-nonsense components that include the sturdy and precise Sram Rival groupset that drives Rondo alloy wheels on grippy WTB Nano tires. It’s the perfect balance of raw power and all-day ridability.The RUUT CF2 is one of our most popular bikes and is a great choice for anyone who want’s a carbon gravel bike that won’t break the bank.
