Travel and enjoy the bike. This is what allows the new RLT 9 Steel Long Ride, a bike with classic lines and modern functionality that has been designed with adventure and comfort in mind. While other frame materials fall in and out of favor, steel stands the test of time. The RLT 9 Steel delivers a flawless synthesis of form and function into a frame that makes every ride open for adventure. We’ve blended the historic Reynolds 853 tubing with modern design characteristics utilizing thru-axle technology and a tapered steel headtube. The eloquently TIG welded Reynolds 853 tubing showcases precision, strength and durability, and frame features include rear rack pannier braze-ons for when the adventure lasts longer than a few hours, and three sport-beer compatible water bottle mounts ensuring you have fuel in places that don’t.
