The Secan is our gravel bike. The design of the Secan revolves around the simple idea that you can transition between road and off-road and ride fast everywhere. It can transform your local riding, as you begin to link up all the best lanes with farm tracks, bridleways, even woodland single track. To me, this is what gravel bikes are all about. An area that you think you knew, all of a sudden becomes a world of unexplored tracks and bridleways; you see and experience the landscape differently. A local loop in even the most ordinary of landscapes can become so much more.This idea of real-world riding drives the design of the bike.A performance tube set that feels lively and eager, not over-built. A light-weight and confidence inspiring carbon fork with cage mounts and internally sleeved dynamo routing. A geometry and ride position that feels familiar and efficient on the road but stable and predictable off-road. A more sloping top tube to aid manoeuvrability and increase comfort when things get rough. Huge tyre clearance but chain stays only 12mm longer than the Strael 2.0. The frame features ports for dynamo rear lighting, with clever solutions for every type of configuration; representing a level of care and detailing that you would normally only see in the custom world.
While the Secan could be your road bike, for all the reasons above it is an extremely capable off-road machine. James Hayden was joint winner of the punishing Italy Divide Race on a Secan and in 2020 three riders completed the Atlas Mountain Race on board Secan’s, including a top 10 finish by Jonathan Rankin. Add to this, countless stories and adventures from our customers all over the world.
The Secan 2.5 is our latest evolution. The main changes vs the 2.0 are the introduction of the Bentley x Fairlight Mk.2 dropouts, increased tyre clearance (now compatible with a 27.5 x 2.4″ tyre), lighter-weight chainstays, size specific tubes for 61 sizes and finally a colour-matched Cempa 2.0 fork as standard.
