Truly for all roads

At home on the tarmac, but built with detours off the beaten path in mind, the DSS2 will adapt to road, gravel or loaded touring – so all you have to do is choose the adventure.

Taking up to 42c tyres and benefitting from a relaxed road geometry that’s optimal for long rides and gravel riding, the DSS2 is a go to road bike with the potential for a lot more. It rewards you on a Sunday ride, eats up commuting miles, smoothes out the gravel and then of course there are rack mounts, should you want to add panniers for a weekend getaway or long-distance bike packing trip. Versatile and adaptable and a total joy to ride.

Tubing is Reynolds 853; Reynolds’ highest quality, highest strength seamless air-hardening steel, which comprises up to 98% recycled material content. Its extremely dent resistant, making it ideal for a bike that will see plenty of adventure.

We’ve coupled this hardy tube set with the Wound Up Gravel fork. Wound Up forks are tried and tested and are held by many as the best riding fork on the market. You can think of a Wound Up fork in the same way you would a steel fork – designed to last a lifetime, so you can ride it with total confidence. Featuring filament wound carbon fibre construction it offers incredible stability, vibration dampening and torsional stiffness while still maintaining a low weight.

Finished with stainless dropout and contact points, including dead ended bottle bosses to reduce water ingress. The frame is finished with stainless steel hardware and brass barrel adjusters.

We work closely with you in the realisation of you DSS bike and all builds get a personal specification sheet. This allows us to keep track of any custom extras you may require and allows you to see your custom sizing, so you know exactly what you are ordering. This also works as a great tool for us to discuss and finalise any custom paint designs.
