STRAEL 3.0

Our flagship model, the bike that started it all. The Strael is our four seasons road bike. A bike designed with as little compromise as possible; the tube set and handling of a steel race bike with the function, utility and practicality of an audax bike. If riding on tarmac is your thing, then this could be the only bike you need. Fast and efficient with incredible comfort. It has confidence inspiring handling when descending and cornering at speed, with the tube forming and geometry working in harmony.We felt it would be difficult to improve on the Strael 2.0, so it’s taken two years of development to further push the design forward; requiring new factories, new tooling, new tubing and new process. It’s a fantastic product that showcases what is possible with the material, while offering unrivaled functionality and detailing.

Here is what is new on the Strael 3.0:

  • Clearance for 36mm (width as measured) tyres.
  • Reynolds 853 downtube with revised butting profile.
  • Reynolds 725 chainstays with custom forming and shaping that is unlike anything you’ve seen on a steel frame.
  • Size specific top tube and seat stays for sizes 61R and 61T. Designed for bigger, stronger riders.
  • Bentley x Fairlight Mk.2 dropouts.
  • Anraed 3.0 fork with internal dynamo routing and improved tyre clearance.
  • 3rd bottle mount for endurance riding and full frame bags.
  • Full dynamo integration for running rear lights.
  • Solar pattern graphics.
  • Colour matched fork as standard.
